- We are a full year and then some into the pandemic life and having to adapt to the ‘new normal’ of having to keep our PPE on when it matters.
- At this point, most of us are all too familiar with the necessity as well as the impracticalities of mask wearing.
- Here, we share three ways to make your mask wearing a more practical and charming experience.
Accessorise your most essential accessory and consider these three accessories for a better mask experience:
Large, retro style chain link and micro-beaded eyeglass chains have made a noticeable comeback in 2021. And this time, they are doubling up as essential mask accessories.
They’re emerging as a must-have for everyday use. Simply clip your chain of choice to your mask and you’ll never have to place your mask on an unsanitary surface again.

Barrettes to pin your mask back
Have a slightly oversized mask that’s not worth the boot just yet?
Then grab a collection of your favourite beaded or embellished barrettes to hold your sagging mask in place. It will not only save you the inconvenience and sheer embarrassment of a slipping facial barrier, it may also be the answer to agonising behind-the-ear irritation typically caused by plastic mask ear loops.
To achieve the ideal fit, simply snip the mask loops, cross the loose ends over each other and secure them place with your clip.
