Which mask type are you?
A terrific accessory to mask your personality or reflect it in all its glory? With masks recommended for the foreseeable future, it is time you defined your masked persona. From sophisticated in silk, to drab and utilitarian or downright silly – masks are defining our post-corona personalities in more ways than you think. Do you colour-coordinate your trouser suits (if you’re still wearing those) and your heels (those too!) with your masks like the on-trend Slovakian President or match your bikinis with the triangle swatch covering your face? Or are you one of those maximizing your accessory to make a statement about animal rights and sustainability. Here’s our Insider’s guide to find out which personality you’d like to reveal or mask.
This pandemic made you discover a new side. All that downtime and your fearless imagination culminated in an obsession with making everything from scratch.

For the animal lover
You’re one of those who cannot get enough of cute animal videos. Your social media feed either has a list of petitions against animal abuse or has more images of your cats than your partner/children. Your friends are clearly four-legged (we’re not judging, merely bolstering the conclusion your quarantine has led you to realise by now). We think a moist muzzle or a whiskered nose might be your look.
With designers jumping in to make masks a coveted fashion accessory rather than a medical necessity, masks are being embroidered, sequinned, and coutured as statement pieces. Add your own personal touch to make your mask draw all the envy while keeping the dreaded virus at bay!
Why wait for carnivals when we’re living in a parody! Make your work colleagues do a double-take with your gag-guaranteed masks. Watch your office popularity soar for providing comic relief compared to your over-achieving but drab clinical-mask-wearing colleague!
