In light of certain recent events, now seems like a good time to remind everyone of the importance, and effectiveness, of wearing a face mask. While they remain the hottest (and most important) accessory as we enter fall, there’s a new crop of masks that better reflect the season. After all, you don’t want your summer masks, in all their light, airy fabrics and palettes, clashing with your fall wardrobe — what a fashion faux pas! So now that you find yourself in the market for a seasonally appropriate mask, below are 15 of the best for the fall ahead.
