        Trend Alert! Matching Masks and Outfits

        Trend Alert! Matching Masks and Outfits

        By Elena Allison 

        In 2020, the main goal for most of us is to stay safe, and keep others safe. Thinking about our fashion choices really hasn't been the most pressing issue, and most of us have been more than happy to swap out our jeans for our coziest pair of sweatpants. But over six months into this pandemic, many of us are yearning for a change! Despite our current situation, we have still seen many fashion trends come and go during this quarantine. But one trend we think (and hope) is here to stay is the matching masks and outfit trend! Tyra Banks would probably say something like.. Face mask, but make it fashion! Prominent celebrities, politicians, and influencers have all been seen rocking this look, which in our book, makes it official! If you’re looking for a style revamp just in time for the new year, take a look at our Rafi Nova Masks Homepage to find masks that best suit your style and wardrobe. Today, we’re gonna show you some of our favorite ways to style your masks to your outfit. 


        1. Matching Colors and Patterns 

        We love the way @elenataber rocked our favorite tie dye masks in this Instagram post!  Matching grey and grey makes the tie dye pattern pop and draws your eyes there. This simple monochrome style can work for any color palette or season. 




        Also check out how @juliagiaimo styled our black tie dye mask in this post! Here she contrasted the black mask with a simple white tank, making for a minimalistic neutral look. Even if you don’t match colors or patterns, you can stick to similar color schemes to get the same effect.  

         

        2. Similar Patterns 

        We love how @bbperformer rocked her fall adult performance mask with a plaid jumpsuit in this post! The red in the mask pairs so nicely with the red in the sweater and so do the different fall patterns on the mask and top! 





        3. Matching Patterns 

        Um..cuteness alert! Do you even really need to bother styling an entire outfit when wearing a mask can do it for you?! Wearing the same pattern on your outfit and your mask has been one of the biggest fashion trends of this year, and we certainly hope it continues! We love this picture of Noa and Eyva looking so cute in their sequined masks and polka dot dresses! Does it get any better than this?

        Shopping and Saving This Holiday Season 

        By Elena Allison 

        If you haven’t done any online shopping since the beginning of the pandemic.. Congratulations, you’re doing better than the rest of us! But if you have a holiday coming up, odds are, you have started to think a little bit about how gift giving and receiving is going to look in the time of COVID -19. The Holiday Season already can raise stress and anxiety levels. Fighting with big crowds, coping with financial stress, making returns, and struggling to find the perfect gift can all cause frustrations during a time that is supposed to be filled with joy and relaxation. The stress of 2020 and the current global health situation can undoubtedly add to this stress if not planned for and properly managed. Today, we are sharing some ideas to help mitigate some of the chaos that is the holiday season. With a little bit of planning and advanced preparation, you’ll be able to take on the holidays like a pro! 


        Shopping Will Start Earlier

        One thing we can all expect is for the shopping rush to start a bit earlier this year in an effort to avoid holiday crowds like those on Black Friday. Even though it might feel like a bit of annoyance to already have to start thinking about gifts, this might actually have some perks to it! For example, sales will probably start earlier and last longer! That means you won’t have to make your purchases right away, and prices might keep dropping closer to the holiday! 


        Most Shopping Will Probably Move Online 

        With stores limiting capacity and some states beginning to implement lockdowns once again, it is almost a guarantee that this holiday season will involve many more online purchases. Because of this, stores may even be stocking fewer items and instead redirecting customers to their websites! If you want to avoid bigger crowds as a safety measure, consider taking a peak online for the perfect gift! We love websites like Etsy, society6, Redbubble and Storenvy for supporting local and independent artists! 


        Expect Shipping Delays 

        If you can, it is probably best to go ahead and begin your shopping in order to have a wide safety net for delivery. With the expected increase in online purchases, it is possible that shipping carriers and the post office will be overwhelmed with packages. To make sure your delivery makes it to the right place at the right time, make sure you mail presents well in advance of your holiday, and ask for a tracking number! 


        Spending Less On Gifts May Be The Norm This Year 

        This year, the reality is that many people may have tighter budgets. If you do a regular gift exchange with family or friends, it might be a good idea to have a realistic conversation with them about what a realistic amount to spend is. No one wants friends and family to feel obligated to spend money on gifts, so even if you don’t know someone’s financial situation, it might not hurt to bring this topic up gently. This may clear the air of any tensions surrounding gift giving this holiday season. One benefit from the current situation is that a lack of presents may force us all to take a closer look at the real purpose of the holidays: love, family and togetherness.
