Although many of us might feel a bit out of control due to the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, there are plenty of little things we can do that promote both the health of others and self-expression—including (but not limited to) wearing a mask when you go outside. Taking a few moments to peruse and stock up on some of the best cloth face masks online right now can give you the tools you need to keep everyone around you safe. Plus, so many of these masks are seriously cute. So if you’re missing getting dressed up or feeling like there’s no reason to wear anything other than 10-year-old sweats to walk your pup, a cute face mask can help you feel like you’re expressing your sense of style while protecting those around you. Responsibility doesn’t have to be boring, OK?

To help you protect the health of others while also keeping you stylish (It’s the little things!), we rounded up some of the best face masks you can purchase online. Since the need for these masks has increased in the past several months, so many brands have come out of the woodwork to provide customers with masks and promote a safe lifestyle during these times. So many of these brands, too, give back in some way to those on the frontlines or organizations aiding those who need extra assistance—whether it be through monetary donations or sending actual masks. Just by purchasing a mask for yourself, you can keep others healthy and give back at the same time. (!!!)

It’s worth noting, though, that these cloth face masks are not for medical use. Reusable cloth masks can help prevent your breath and germs from reaching those around you, but unlike N95 masks, they can’t prevent you from inhaling germs. If you’re sick or asymptomatic, wearing a cloth mask can help keep you from infecting others, but make sure you and those around you understand the difference between medical-grade and cloth masks. Although wearing a cloth mask is a safe and smart move, you still need to keep a distance (at least six feet apart!) from anyone else.

Below, you’ll find so many cloth face mask options sure to fit with any summer outfit you might have planned—or your sweats, of course. All of these masks are protective and keep you from passing your breath and germs onto others, so go ahead and choose one (or three) that fit your own personal style. Staying safe and keeping others healthy never looked so good.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Forever 21 is a STYLECASTER sponsor, however, all products in this article were independently selected by our editors.
