There’s never been a time like this in America; a time where everyone must come together and agree to cover their mouths and noses with various different mask brands to reduce the spread of the earth-shattering Coronavirus. Masks are everyone’s new fashion accessory, whether they chose it or not. Looking stylish while saving lives is absolutely possible when you try some of these mask brands:
Vida is a clothing brand that was developed as a way to bring artists from all over the world together to create beautiful clothing. When the pandemic began, a need for masks began surpassing the need for designer clothing, and Vida changed their business plan and established their own mask brand. Offering various different types of masks, everyone is sure to find one they would love to wear on Vida’s well-stocked website.
All masks are double-layered with a pouch in the middle to slip in a filter if you’re looking for a little extra protection. They also include a bendable nose wire to ensure a close fit, giving those who wear glasses a break from all that fog. Finally, there are adjustable earloops for an ultimately perfect fit.
Get one black mask, like the one above, and a PM2.5 filter to put inside for just $10. Pay less per mask if you order a bundle for the family or your friends!
2. Steve Madden
Steve Madden is a trendy brand that designs clothing for men, women, and kids. Like Vida, when the pandemic began, Steve Madden saw an opportunity to establish themselves as a well-loved mask brand. They’ve recently released a new and improved version of their face masks called the Combat collection. The reviews are fabulous and the designs are to die for. It’s not hard to see why. The masks feature a filter option, a bendable nose strip, and adjustable ear straps: everything a decent mask needs.
Get this print, or pick from their wide collection of styles. Each mask retails at $9.95 and comes with a filter insert.
3. Graf Lantz
Graf Lantz was selling purses, backpacks, and home goods all made of natural products prior to the COVID-19 epidemic. Now, they are a prevalent mask brand. Graf Lantz are made with your choice of either organic cotton or European Linen and feature a design that tapers at the sides to ensure a closer, snugger fit. Like most other mask brands, the ear and nose sections are adjustable.
Get this style, and various others at Graf Lantz for $22-26. If the price doesn’t seem worth it, check out the reviews! This mask has a solid 4.9 out of 5 stars with over 1500 reviews!
HaloLife is a mask brand that is dedicated to creating a perfectly snug and sealed yet breathable fit for every mask owner. The mask brand boasts a type of “nano filter technology” which is supposed to catch around 99% of airborne particulates. They only have four colors (with two limited edition designs in stock now) but they are simple enough to go with any outfit.
HaloLife masks aren’t cheap, but they look, and according to their 4.8-star reviews, feel nice and sleek and stylish, while still making wearers feel safe. Order yours while they’re still on sale for $29.95!
5. Under Armour
This one is for all you gym rats out there. Under Armour has been a huge name in sports and athletic apparel for decades. This mask brand is up there with some of the sports industry’s biggest brand names, such as Nike or Adidas. Under Armour is no stranger to perfecting workout gear for the body, so it’s no wonder they were able to master the perfect protective gear for our faces.
This mask is water-resistant, has a cool-touch inner fabric, and features anti-microbial technology to stay fresh during those sweaty workouts. Available in five distinct sizes to provide the best fit, and six different colors to ensure your outfit matches, this is the perfect workout mask.
Get your Under Armour mask directly from their website for $30.00 each or two for $40.00!
6. Old Navy
Old Navy has been an American staple across shopping malls nationwide for many generations. Their affordable yet trendy and comfortable clothes provide customers the chance to stock a practical and essential wardrobe without breaking the bank. With such a huge following, Old Navy is able to offer face masks in bigger quantities for lower prices than many of the other mask brands on the list.
Check out both the Active and Pleated style masks that Old Navy has to offer. These masks don’t have an insert for a filter, but they are adjustable and good for comfortable and casual use.
Grab a five-pack for only $12.50! What a steal!
7. Herschel Supply Co.
Herschel Supply Co. is most well known for their durable, simple, yet stylish backpacks and bags. Often the “artsy” kids will go for the Herschel bag, and why not get a mask to match? This mask brand features three layers of breathable fabric and the choice to include a filter, as well as all of the usual adjustable features. If this mask is anything like Herschel’s bags, it should be pretty durable!
Get one of these Herschel brand masks for the affordable price of $14.99!
8. Rag & Bone
Long hailed as one of New York’s most fashionable designing companies, Rag & Bone is capable of staying relevant despite the pandemic. Their newest project? Masks, of course! The Rag & Bone mask brand is actually called the “stealth mask” and it certainly is sleek. You could look like Marvel’s newest villain with one of these masks on. They hug your face so snugly and perfectly that you’ll look intimidating even when you’re walking through the grocery store with pajama pants on.
Check out the Schoeller Stealth Mask pack with three masks for $55.
9. Mandala Scrubs
Mandala is a brand that has always been in the medical field, designing practical and comfortable scrubs for doctors and nurses in need. Now more than ever, there’s a push for everyone, even civilians, to “suit up” and protect themselves and others against spreading and contracting the coronavirus. Mandala Scrubs has taken it upon themselves to develop a mask that resembles and acts as their scrubs do. This mask brand features a material that is fluid-resistant and resists bacteria growth.
This is perhaps the safest option on this list, and it happens to go for a great price at just $9.99 per mask!
Lululemon is an esteemed activewear brand that has successfully developed a comfortable mask that doesn’t have ear loops. Lululemon’s double strap face masks have one strap that goes around the upper part of your head and another that goes around your head, just above your neck. This style of securing the face mask changes everything about how it fits and feels, and some love it.
This mask is consistently in and out of stock, but currently, you can find a black three-pack, or a mauve, plum, and garnet three-pack. These masks retail at $29.95 for the pack.
