Seattle Style: Face Mask Edition


Seattle residents are now encouraged to wear face masks in public areas to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. The new guidance includes grocery stores, restaurants, retail, indoor workplaces, and public transit. Many local brands are answering the call of safety by offering masks that help keep fashion fans stylish and safe.




Morning Siren has colorful masks in a variety of prints and patterns. The best part is, they are FREE! Just pay for shipping and handling. Oh, and while you’re shopping, consider making a donation to help pay for material costs to keep Morning Siren mask production going. They also just added gift packs that include greeting cards and small gifts.




One Imaginary Girl face masks are not for the faint of heart. They are for die-hard fashion fans who want to make a style statement. Designer Sarah Donofrio just announced that new color block face masks have been added. View all the styles available in the Mask Shop here. A portion of the proceeds from every sale will benefit a rotating list of local non-profits. 




Freeman has 100% cotton face masks available in brushed twill and plain weave oxford fabric. The masks are $10 and will be made in between production runs of PPE for local healthcare workers.




Luly Yang currently has over a dozen styles of stylish face masks available including one that features her signature butterfly motif. Each mask is priced at $55 and made in Luly’s couture studio located in Seattle. You can also make your own mask at home using this handy guide.




Seattle brand Over & Over has also pivoted from making vintage kimonos to making face masks amid the coronavirus outbreak. The collection of silk masks features 8 different styles and proceeds benefit Food Lifeline.





Feral is also making masks during the COVID-19 outbreak and for every mask purchased, the company is donating a mask to someone in need. I love the colorful range of tie-dye styles! View available styles here




Sustainable brand Tokki is also now offering face masks for both kids and adults. For every mask purchased, one is donated to a frontline worker in need. 



Zumiez has a variety of face masks and coverings in stock now with prices starting at $9.95. The Zine mask (shown above) is made from 100% cotton that is super soft and comfortable to wear.

According to the World Health Organization, up to 80% of infections are mild or asymptomatic, which means that there are people out in the community who otherwise feel well but are inadvertently getting people sick. Please wear a mask and help control the spread of coronavirus. Your community thanks you! And hey, if you're going to wear a mask, you might as well #ShopLocal and get one that you like.
