16 great face coverings for men from beard-friendly masks to designer looks

Here's our pick of fashionable men's face masks for the age of coronavirus

Karen Silas

In the era of coronavirus, face coverings, whether fabric or medical masks, are a necessity for social distancing when we’re out and about, and as such have become as much a part of our style, and how we express it, like any other accessory in our wardrobe. 

Thankfully it seems that these days there is a fabric face mask style to fit every personality, and that goes for men, too! There are cheeky prints that will spark a laugh, and motifs dedicated to hobbies – including video games. For the classic guy, there are masks in traditional menswear fabrics and if you love a bolder fashion print, you can find masks in Versace-style baroque. There are even extra-large face masks for men with beards!

Masks are definitely a must-have. The World Health Organization (WHO) says that wearing non-medical fabric masks, which should be washed in hot water and detergent daily, will help protect others around you and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
