As COVID-19 case numbers continue to rise and officials look to enforce mandates and lockdowns (see the latest on your state) in preparation of holiday gatherings and colder weather, cloth face masks may prove to be one of winter’s most valuable accessories.
To help us suit up in the name of safety, many of our favorite brands are offering stylish, adjustable and (perhaps most important) breathable options, and making them more accessible by incorporating them into their Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales at a steep discount.
