With the relaxed Covid-19 rules in Singapore, it's time to consider investing in the versatile face mask chain

If you thought that mask accessories were a fad, think again. The versatility that mask chains and straps afford us have never been more welcomed, especially now that we can step outside without our masks on.

Getting a mask chain is also a practical choice for those who are fairly forgetful. Never again will you accidentally leave your trusty mask behind somewhere or struggle to fish it out of your bag.

Perhaps the most convincing case we can make for the mask chain is that they can add some flair to your look. Below, we highlight some brands that make mask chains that are worthy of being shown off.
