Covid-19 Mask Top

Covid-19 and clothing – how the pandemic could influence fashion

About 13 months ago, a person wearing a mask was usually robbing a bank or a store. Now it’s rare to see an unmasked person everywhere you go. Even with vaccinations becoming more available, experts continue to urge caution and advocate wearing masks for greater safety.

In the past year, we’ve seen a wide variety of masks. Some with designs, others with faces painted on that are characters or resemble the faces they cover. Some have bling, even blinking lights! And now clothing with built-n masks is making an appearance, and Avon offers some options. Before I go on, let me make sure you understand what’s available and what they can and cannot do for you.

Currently, Avon has a Hooded Pullover and a Sleeveless top that come with built-in masks with earloops. The Hoodie is made with polyester with a Kangaroo pocket; the sleeveless is polyester and spandex. Both are stylish and good for indoor or outdoor use. Both tops have good reviews on style and fit. The advantage is that you have something to mask with when you forget to take a mask with you.

But here’s what you need to know.

As stated on Avon’s site, these garments are “Not for medical use or designed to protect you from infection.” This is critical because I don’t want you to think these garments are fool-proof. There is an on-going debate about whether an inadequate mask is better than no mask. The jury is still out on this.

The idea behind these tops is that it’s a fun way to make a fashion statement. The advantage of a top like this is that it is a good reminder that the pandemic is not over. So be vigilant about taking an adequate mask wherever you go to be safe and protect others.

As long as you keep this in mind, these tips are a fun way to make a fashion statement and as seen in Forbes – they are “Stylish Covid Gear you’ll Actually Want To Wear.”
