When public health officials first recommended wearing masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, many people grabbed whatever they could get their hands on. But now, we’re all starting to realize that our mask is a major part of our look—and wishing for some reasonable meeting of function and fashion.

As you probably know, N95 masks are the gold standard, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that they be reserved for healthcare workers and medical first responders. A KN95 offers similar protection, though. Even still, not all KN95 masks are created equal. Some are authorized for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), making them the ones to buy. But, of course, they’re hard to find.

Well, heads up: Amazon currently has the FDA-authorized WWDOLL KN95 masks in stock. These have another added perk beyond that very important distinction: While most KN95 masks are white, stark, and devoid of style, the WWDOLL mask (wait for it) comes in basic black.

WWDOLL masks have five layers of protection: two layers of non-woven cloth, two layers of melt-blown fabric, and one layer of hot-air cotton. (The inner layer absorbs moisture from your breath, wicking it away from skin.)

The masks have a 3D design that accommodates the shape of your face for a snug fit. Elastic ear loops and a metal adjustable nose bridge help make sure your mouth, nose, and chin are well covered. The masks filter out 96.1 percent of particles, putting them on par with N95s.

People swear by the WWDOLLs in the reviews. “Sturdy construction, more quality appearance than other KN95 masks selling for less,” one five-star reviewer wrote, noting that it “looks great with professional uniforms.” Another likes “how tight fitting it is.”

One happy customer declared this the “perfect KN95 face mask,” adding, “Very nice price!”

You can say that again. Right now, you can snag a 50-pack of WWDOLL masks for $66 with on-page coupon (was $70). That breaks down to just $1.32 per mask!

So, whether you’re looking for coverage for yourself or your entire family, you can be protected—and fashionable—clad in basic black, for the foreseeable future.
