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.
Everlane The 100% Human Face Mask 5-Pack
You don’t have to leave the tie-dye trend in summer. Carry it into fall with these neutral tie-dyed masks from Everlane.

Depending on what wash of denim you find yourself wearing, whether it be light, medium or dark, Rag & Bone’s cotton Pleat Masks are fit for pairing with a variety of shades.
Nordstrom Assorted 4-Pack Adult Face Masks
The slightly faded look of these masks from Nordstrom lend them a rugged feel that make them seem even more appropriate for fall. Plus, the colors practically encapsulate the season.
Hedley & Bennett The Wake Up and Fight Mask
These masks are made from either 100% cotton or a 60/40 cotton-poly blend, and each one features a flexible metal nose piece (so you’ll no longer have to constantly be adjusting it) as well as an inner filter pocket for those days when you just want a little extra protection. Plus, if you happen to buy them for the whole fam, they come with a handy place to write your name on the inside, so no risk of mixing them up with someone else’s.

While you might not be so inclined to don the paisley/floral pattern from this Sanctuary pack of masks, the three other colors are the perfect fall hues that won’t detract too much from an outfit, but also aren’t boring.

But don’t worry, the mask is hypoallergenic, so none of that annoying itching feeling.
