How to Match Your Face Mask with Your Outfit
Embrace the hottest trend of matching your face mask to your outfit for a coordinated look
Since last March, wearing a face mask has become second nature to us all. Masks are now a wardrobe essential and something we will be wearing for the foreseeable future. Wearing face masks can be fashionable as well as functional and they are a form of self expression. Matching your face mask to your outfit has become the hottest look of 2021 with many celebrities and royals embracing the trend.

The Vampire’s Wife is a clothing brand that designs evening dresses with matching face masks for a coordinated look. Duchess Catherine wore one of their elegant dresses to a high profile event at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin last March. The brand is now available to order online at net a porter.com and Selfridges.
Irish designer, Laura Weber created the embroidery on First Lady, Jill Biden’s white cashmere coat, silk wool dress and matching face mask worn at Inauguration Day on January 20th. The stunning dress and coat was designed by Gabriela Hearst.
Laura and her team spent two to four hours applying a flower for each of the fifty US states to the dress’s silk organza neckline and arms. Weber’s specialty is attention to detail as she specifically embroidered the Delaware flower on Dr Biden’s mask. She also ensured that the Delaware symbol, the First Lady’s home state, was placed near her heart on the dress.

My pro tip for matching your face mask to your outfit is to choose a color that complements the color of your outfit as Coterie member, Jessie Randall has done here. It’s much more subtle than trying to go all matchy matchy!
