While stitched fabric masks are highly effective, bandanas, gaiters, and some kinds of store-bought masks may spread more germs.Researchers have conducted numerous studies to determine which face masks are most effective. Here, we've looked at the data from various studies and spoken with multiple experts to pinpoint which fabric face masks are best.
The hottest accessory at New York Fashion Week this fall is one that no fashionista could have seen coming before 2020.
But as the world continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, fashion, too, has had to evolve to face this 'new normal' — and in August, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced new safety guidelines for Fashion Week, including limiting spectators at shows and capping the number of professionals allowed in a room at one time.
Uniqlo now making face masks for general public
CDC advises that all Americans wear face coverings in public to contain the coronavirus. Here's where to find one.Uniqlo on Monday announced it is selling three-packs of protective face masks using its "Airism" fabric technology online and in stores. The fast-fashion retailer's mask is constructed of three layers of fabric and wicks moisture, filters air and blocks 90% of UV rays, according to the manufacturer. The masks are available in three colors and three sizes. A three-pack costs $14.90.
Still, the most elite fashionistas have managed to score invites to this seasons ultra-exclusive presentations, and as always, they're dressing the part.
This time, though, that means not just fabulous bags, cool shoes, and designer ensembles — it also means protective face masks.
These fashion fans are hardly wasting any opportunities when it comes to their newest accessories, using the face-coverings as stylish statement makers for an unprecedented time.

New York Fashion Week operated on a tighter schedule from September 13 to 17, shortened by several days from its typical length.
The event included live shows but shifted heavily toward virtual programming, with outdoor events capped at 50 people and indoor events restricted to 50 per cent capacity.
Those restrictions applied not just to audience members, but those involved in the show: designers, models, stylists, makeup artists, and other staff members.
While spectators weren't allowed at indoor events, some were able to attend outdoor events on the Spring Place rooftop.
'New York City is the fashion capital of the world and New York Fashion Week celebrates the ingenuity of this city, and our unmatched creative talent,' Governor Cuomo, who has attended New York Fashion Week events in the past, said in a statement.
'When COVID-19 hit New York, so many of our cherished events were forced to cancel or be postponed. The pandemic is far from over, but we're proud to support event organizer IMG in moving forward with NYFW, in adherence with strict state public health guidance.

And what could happen if you refuse to wear one.You probably know by now that masks are a crucial tool to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in public spaces. The coronavirus spreads mainly through respiratory droplets, which are expelled when people talk, cough, sneeze, and yell. When someone who’s infected with COVID-19 expels those droplets, they may contain viral particles that can go on to infect someone else. Wearing a mask helps prevent those droplets from getting far enough to actually spread the virus.
'Safety, as always, is our top priority and we commend the hosts, and all participating designers, for their innovative, New York Smart solutions to bring this event to life.'
Those present at the events were also be expected to adhere to social distancing, diagnostic testing, and health screening procedures — including temperature tests prior to admittance.
Face coverings were also required.
NYFW producer IMG worked closely with state officials to ensure compliance with Phase 4 reopening guidelines.
'We are grateful to Governor Cuomo and his leadership for their swift, successful response in fighting the spread of the coronavirus, which has now set the standard of excellence for our nation,' the Executive Vice President of IMG's Fashion Events Group, Leslie Russo, said.
'The past six months have been exceedingly difficult for the fashion industry, and we are proud to offer an avenue for designers, models, stylists, hair and makeup artists, photographers, production teams — and the innumerable other professionals who work in, or adjacent to, the fashion industry during New York Fashion Week — to safely get back to work this September.'
