11 best face masks for the office: The back to work accessory for the boardroom

The office accessory of 2020...

Leanne Bayley

As we all prepare to head back to the office soon, we're starting to think about our workwear wardrobe - and what we'll need to take in our work bags. We'll have to swap tracksuit bottoms for trousers, T-shirts and hoodies for blouses and let's face it, we might have to buy a work-appropriate face mask. Our leopard, sequins and unicorn-covered face coverings are all fine and dandy for the trip to the shops, but for our morning commute to the office? Probably a bit much.

Do you need to wear a face mask in an office?

The answer would be no. Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed that the government is not currently considering making face coverings compulsory in office spaces. "It is something we’ve looked at and rejected," he said, before adding that face coverings in other spaces, such as shops, NHS settings and public transports, would need to be worn for the "foreseeable future".

Regardless, you might feel more comfortable wearing one if you're in a small office, or if you're dashing between meetings. You might need to head out for an external meeting and would rather arrive looking pristine and put together. 

Here are some chic and stylish face masks that will leave a good impression in the boardroom…
