With summer temperatures here and the pandemic still raging on, face masks is still one of our go-to accessories through this summer season yet again. 

Regardless of where you live, face masks have arguably become a staple part of everyday life now. And while having a good variety of effective and safe face masks is essential, it's always equally important that the styles are comfortable and lightweight -— ensuring maximum breathability, even through the year's hottest months.

Many people have turned to N95 and KN95 face masks as their cloth coverings of choice -- particularly for use in indoor public settings. Both the N95 face mask and the KN95 face mask help to provide a durable layer of protection. And with the summer season underway and warm weather here, now's the perfect time to start stocking up on breathable face masks and protective coverings that will help to keep you safe (in accordance with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) mask guidelines too, of course) and cool — even through the often blistering summer temps. 

Ahead, shop ET Style's picks for the best N95 and KN95 face masks to wear through hot weather and summer temperatures. Plus, don't miss the best breathable face masks for workouts, the best face masks for travel and shop Lululemon's cult-favorite face masks — now back in stock.
