Face Masks That Won't Kill Your Fit

As we all take this time to adjust to our new lifestyle, wearing protective face masks when we leave the house is starting to become the norm. As much as I urge you to continue practicing social distancing (and staying the f*ck home) if you absolutely have to go out, it is strongly advised to wear protection (on your face). This is to protect others from possible asymptomatic carriers who can be unknowingly transmitting the virus. As much as it's important to remember that face masks are not a fashion accessory, there's no harm in one that you like! Here are 5 protective face coverings to keep those around you safe, without killing your fit.


Lovers + Friends

Constantly inspired by the laid back Los Angeles lifestyle in which the brand was founded, Lovers + Friend exudes ease and wearability.


Sanctuary

This unisex PPE mask comes in an assortment of stylish signature prints, as seen on celebrities like Ben Affleck, Ana De Armas, and Alessandra Ambrosio.

With your purchase of a mask, Sanctuary will provide masks to organizations in need.


Citizens of Humanity

In an effort to help combat COVID-19, Citizens of Humanity has re-purposed their sewing facility and has begun producing masks for front line responders, including hospitals, healthcare workers and children’s advocacy groups. They are now offering the masks in packs of 5, and are all 100% cotton and washable.

Caraa

A pack of five non-medical grade masks that are usable, washable, and designed for comfort, and constructed out of repurposed materials from their production line–working to minimize waste and use these leftover pieces for good. Reusable, hand-washable, and designed for comfort. Caraa will match your purchase with a donation to New York's relief efforts.


Uncommon Goods

After every storm comes a rainbow. But look around, and this time you’ll see them long before it’s over. Kids around the world are painting rainbows to spread cheer—and twelve of them created the ones on these masks. Each has a little label with a big, positive message, like “lift others up,” and “keep smiling.”


Strings and loop attached to the two layers of tightly-woven cotton give a secure, adjustable fit. The set of two lets you wear one and wash one. Uncommon Goods is donating 100% of profits to NYC Health + Hospitals. Choose from three different pairs, each with two designs. Made in New York.

Stay safe, be responsible!
