Jay Z, Beyonce

I'm not sure how many instances it takes to be able to officially dub something a "trend," but I'm pretty confident, we can call ribbed ski masks a ~thing~ at this point. If not just now, then much, much earlier. You've probably seen it by now, but Jay Z and Beyonce are touring together (!!!) and the poster they released yesterday in promotion of the their On the Run joint tour depicts the power couple in matching black ski masks. The knit face coverings are, yes, a throwback to your "'03 Bonnie and Clyde" Hov and Bey, but they're also one more stop on the seemingly never-ending train of celebs wearing ski masks.

Soooo this happened. "This" being the above image wherein Mr. Justin Bieber, the internationally super-famous pop star, is posing for an Instagram selfie wearing a black ski mask embroidered with Chanel's iconic interlocking C logo. (We'll note that he's also wearing a band jacket which simultaneously reminds us of modern matador Macklemore, 1980s Michael Jackson, and yuletide Biebs himself, but let's keep focus on the mask for now.) From front row at Paris Fashion Week courtesy of Kanye West to a prominent feature in Opening Ceremony's Spring Breakers lookbook, ski masks, for whatever reason, are majorly trending, and it looks as though J.Biebs will not be left in the robber-chic dust.
