Special coronavirus: stylish protections to limit damage

The latest trends in coronavirus masks with Etsy, Melucia stitching and the bob visor

Let it be said: health rules oblige, the protective mask is on the way to become the norm, and even an obligation. In order not to take a plum and especially to avoid catching this damn Covid-19 , in public transport in particular, it will quickly be necessary to be equipped! However, disposable surgical masks only have a lifespan of a few hours and are as austere as they are not very green… The cool option? Invest in several washable fabric masks , and why not LOL's latest obsession: peaked bobs .

And since it is not for all that a question of throwing your style into oblivion, we opt for approved masks in spring fabric, sewn with love in small French workshops. Certainly more expensive than those you will find in supermarkets, note that these masks are made in meters of fabrics whose prices have skyrocketed recently and that the couturie (è) res are often brought to juggle with the D system. finally, the more the masks become legion, the less easily the virus will be transmitted. So at your command for a stylish covider!
