With masks now being a necessity, fashion companies are finding opportunities to make a statement. The more fashionable the mask, the more likely people are to buy them. It hasn’t taken that long for fashion brands to find a way to work with this new mask lifestyle, and make it the newest fashion trend.

These designs go all the way from cheetah print to rainbow to floral.
