As we face the cold reality of winter and adjust everything in our wardrobe from our fashion to our footwear accordingly, we’re wondering: do our face masks need to be winterized? While material, fit and coverage are the most important qualities of any face mask, cozy textured styles, from nubby fleece to plush cotton, are quite enticing as the temperatures dip.
What makes a face mask suitable for cold weather? Steer clear of any open knits and look for multilayered styles that have a place for a filter. Machine washable materials are best since they can be sanitized regularly and moisture wicking fabric will keep your dry during any outdoor activity.
The floral prints that matched your spring wardrobe perfectly can now be swapped out in favour of plaids and/or textures that pair well with your winter coat. Fight the winter chill with your mouth and nose completely covered.
