We've been wearing face masks for well over a year, and while it's more important now than ever to keep doing so, you might find yourself getting a little bored with the couple of masks you've had on rotation for all these months (we know we are). That means it's time for an upgrade, which is why we found the 46 best face masks that are not only cute and actually breathable but are currently in stock and ready to be shipped to your door, ASAP.

Keep in mind that, with new variants of the virus popping up in the United States, there’s a renewed interest in which types of masks can protect us the best, and whether or not we should be double-masking (you know, wearing two different face coverings at once). We checked in with Dr. Erika Schwartz, a concierge doctor in New York, who told us, “With the arrival of new strains, if you cannot find real N95 or KN95 you should consider double-masking so you get better protection.”

Also remember, a mask doesn’t replace other recommended measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, so follow the guidelines provided by your local and state government to best protect yourself and your loved ones.
