Of all the places you can buy face masks, Etsy arguably has the cutest and widest variety. Searches for Etsy face masks have soared since April, when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised Americans to wear a cloth face covering in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Within a matter of days, more than 20,000 new face mask sellers appeared on Etsy, catapulting the site's sales to new heights and making it “a top seller of today's most important accessory,” according to the Wall Street Journal.
Face masks are first and foremost worn to flatten the curve, but there's nothing wrong with looking for stylish ones—especially since we're going to be wearing them for the foreseeable future. So whether you're looking for breathable face masks, sizes for kids, or a cute print to match your summer outfits, Etsy has options for you. And though there are plenty of established fashion brands serving up trendy face coverings, placing an order on Etsy comes with the opportunity to support independent sellers and Black-owned brands.
Given the fact that there's an astronomical number of face masks on Etsy right now, we went ahead and rounded up five popular styles, below. From dainty embroidered florals to mood-boosting tropical prints, here are 26 of the cutest Etsy face masks to add to cart. (P.S. Since many of the designs are one-of-a-kind, we'll be updating this page with new options as they go in and out of stock.)
Cotton face masks
Cotton face masks are no doubt the most breathable fabric for warm-weather activities, and run the gamut from soft pastels to cheery prints and Donald Judd–inspired stripes.
Linen face masks
Make your aesthetic dreams come true with Etsy's linen face masks. The muted earth tones are so soothing to look at, and the fabric tends to get softer with every wash.
Tie-dye face masks
Floral face masks
Florals are often considered a print “for spring” (cue Meryl's voice), but there's no doubt the pretty style is perfect for summer.
Customizable and unique face masks
Why settle for a plain face mask when there are so many interesting designs out there? Try a creative kente cloth print, or get a monogrammed set for you and your significant other.
Face masks for kids
Besides finding a size that fits, a cartoon design or a bright color can make it easier for kids to wear face masks.
