Here’s the deal: Face masks are officially the “it” accessory of the season and definitely a necessary addition to any and all ensembles. Like any accessories trend, though, face masks are available for both a hefty chunk of change (for those who like to splurge) and lower prices (for those who want to save a few dollars). You don’t have to shell out much cash to treat yourself to some cool affordable face masks this summer—which will keep others safe while making sure you look cute AF. After all, if we’re pairing masks with every single outfit this season, we might as well find some that keep our budgets in check.

A few months ago, I received my first (!!) cloth face mask from a friend. At that time, I assumed that this singular mask would be the only one I’d need, and that I’d just wear it if I had to travel or was headed into a larger group. As I sit here looking at my collection of six masks now, though, I can’t help but laugh at the naivety of my former self. The small collection I’ve created still doesn’t feel like quite enough. Formerly, I felt that I could never have too many pairs of sunglasses or too many new bags. Now, I find myself consistently browsing face masks online, looking for cute ones to add to my roster.

And while (like with any accessory) purchasing a boatload of chic face masks can be fun, it can also get expensive. $20 here and $30 there starts to add up—and those masks are still considered relatively inexpensive. My budget didn’t love my need to fill my room with tons of sunglasses and purses, and it also doesn’t love me spending hundreds of dollars on face masks just so I can match them to my outfits. Go figure.

Luckily, though, there are so many cute face masks that you can snag for $10 and under. Even if you love floral patterns and on-trend tie-dye, you can still get these looks for less. Sure, it’s fun to splurge on a face mask every so often, but if you (like me) find yourself stocking up on face masks to go with all your ensembles, perhaps adding some of the best affordable face masks to your lineup is a good idea. Treating yourself and keeping those around you safe this season doesn’t have to come at a high cost, folks!
