Updated July 7, 2020. Masks pictured are linked below.

It seems as though our new social normal will include face masks, with the CDC recommending the use of masks when in public. While we leave the surgical and N95 masks for healthcare professionals, pick out some cloth face masks for you and your loved ones to have on hand. Many designers and fashion brands have switched gears in order to continue to give their employees work by creating face masks. The great part about a cloth face mask is that it is reusable, washable, and sometimes even reversible. If you are going to practice responsible social distancing, why not get a mask that you find aesthetically pleasing?

Many brands are offering incentives for purchasing a mask. Costume Designer Michael Ngo is creating couture-like face masks for up to $500, with ALL proceeds benefitting the LA Food Bank. Eugenia Kim is donating five percent of the sales from masks to the Ronald McDonald House New York, which amid COVID-19 is delivering catered meals and kid-friendly care packages. Lirika Matoshi is donating 100% of the proceeds to charities in Kosovo. Companies are also using repurposed, sustainable fabrics, like Collina Strada. They are also donating 5 masks for each mask purchased and providing a free mask with purchases made on their site. For every mask set sold on MOTHER Denim, $10 will be contributed to No Kid Hungry, who is making sure kids get the food they need – during school closures and all year long. With every pack of masks sold from Paige Denim, St. John, and Johnny Was, they will be donating a pack to be distributed to those on the frontlines.
