Quarantine Couture: Face the Future With a Creative Mask

Quarantine Couture: Face the Future With a Creative Mask

Fashion today consists primarily of yoga pants, T-shirts and a face mask — so you might as well show some flair with that mask, whether it's a homemade cotton mask or a vintage gas mask. Home sewers and local businesses alike have mobilized to create masks for family, friends, health workers and the local market.

Union Stitch & Design, for example, has shifted from making aprons for chefs and restaurant workers to making useful masks. And Shinesty, a whimsical clothing brand based in Boulder, is now producing pop-culture masks for $20 each, with all the profits used to purchase medical-grade personal protective equipment for grassroots funding group GetUsPPE.

So now you have no excuse for not wearing a mask — and upping your quarantine couture at the same time. Here are thirty examples of how people are putting their best face forward...what are you wearing?
