Why are Scarf Masks on the Rise?

There is no doubt about it. Wearing a mask is important, and it saves lives. As part of our collective ‘new normal,’ how we wear a face mask is another way of expressing ourselves. And there is something special about scarf masks. A handkerchief scarf mask was one of the first DIY masks we all had access to, but what has led to their enduring popularity?

Many celebrities are being spotted sporting the trend, that’s for sure. For some, the DIY nature of a face mask surely has something to do with its popularity, with some publications calling for items like scarves or handkerchiefs to be used in early days of awareness.

And let’s face it. There’s something counterculture about a bandana scarf mask. There is almost something defiant about wearing a scarf mask. It’s a timeless look entwined in Americana. Whether that’s kids playing ‘cops-and-robbers’ or protesting for a better future, wearing a handkerchief mask is a look that’s always going to turn heads.
