To protect yourself from the coronavirus, the cowboy-version muffler is causing excitement among celebrities. Good or bad idea ?
Masked face. This is how the world now goes. Obligatory in a large part of the public space, the mask, therefore, becomes a reality of the daily silhouette as can a pair of sunglasses or a handbag. And what would the accessory be without raising the pleasant question of style? Overall, everything hinges on a few small details: color, print, material (cotton, silk, linen), and obviously choice of model (surgical masks, FFP2 or approved fabric).
It was without counting the scarf, seen this summer on a large number of famous noses. In July, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp each made it a cosmetic affair to attend their London court appearance in the actor’s lawsuit against the publishers of the British newspaper. The Sun.

As Afnor points out in its recommendations, all fabrics do not have the same filtering power and several layers are necessary to ensure good protection. Wearing a headscarf can therefore give a false sense of security to the wearer and make him forget the rules of social distancing. It is therefore better to stick to masks sold by professionals or that comply with current standards and keep your distance. Like a real cowboy.
