Face masks have come a long way since we first starting buying them back in February.
They’ve evolved from the blue, mesh versions we’re used to seeing medical professionals in, with all sorts of high street and designer brands and celebrities creating their own versions.
Cut to today and it’s becoming increasingly popular to match your face covering to your outfit, making a style statement out of the health accessory.
Celebrities and influencers are leading the charge on this one, with actor Busy Phillips sporting a double-gingham ensemble:
