- New York City-based fashion designers Christian Siriano and Naeem Khan, and clothing companies Rag and Bone and Eileen Fisher, have started making coronavirus masks.
- They are answering the call to New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plea to businesses to pitch in with personal protective equipment for health-care workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak.
- The federal government is now advising everyone to wear a mask, rather than limiting the advisory to people who are sick.
As the fight against the coronavirus continues, states are emphasizing the shortage of personal protective equipment for their health-care and front-line workers. Companies like Apple, AB Inbev and LVMH have been pivoting their business models to help produce or donate equipment such as masks and hand sanitizer. And on a local level, small business is lending a hand as well. In New York City, that effort includes the work of fashion designers.
Shortages of PPE continue to hinder New York’s ability to properly care for coronavirus patients. In response, the state set up a resource page so that small businesses and individuals in the state can contribute to the state’s lack. On Thursday, during his daily coronavirus update, Gov. Andrew Cuomo reiterated the need for businesses to help with PPE and said the state would pay for the equipment.
“I ask businesses to think about the situation we’re in and the possible opportunity,” Cuomo said. “If you can do it, it’s a business opportunity, it’s a state need, it’s a national need. … We’re not asking for a favor; we’ll finance what you need in terms of transitioning, and we’ll buy the product, and I will pay a premium, because we need it.”
Scared of color? Don’t be. A bold hue can feel as effortless as jeans and a button-down, as long as you know where to start (yes, even if 90 percent of your wardrobe is black). So next time you’re unsure how to work color into your routine, channel one of these nine timeless combinations and you’ll be good to go.
NAVY + YELLOW
Navy is basically a neutral, and while it would certainly look nice with just about anything in your wardrobe, a bright yellow really helps it pop.
PINK + RED
Bold red tones down the Barbie vibes, while sweet pink balances the sexy factor. The end result? A perfectly femme combo we want to wear all year long
COBALT + TURQUOISE
Cobalt and turquoise are perhaps the best blues to pair together, because they’re both bright and rich without feeling overpowering.
NAVY + BEIGE
Safe? Maybe. Sleek. You betcha. Navy’s cool undertones are a superb balance to warm beige, for an effect that’s office- or country-club ready.
CHERRY RED + VIOLET
Though this one-two-punch is not for the faint of heart, it’s also a fabulous duo that works every single time. These two bright hues have a decidedly French feel when worn together, and always look expensive—even if you snagged them at H&M.
ORANGE + PINK
Both colors bring to mind sunny days and blooming gardens, but together they become a vibrant sunset that’s sure to turn heads.
LIGHT GRAY + PASTEL PINK
Delicate dove gray tones down the precious nature of powder pink, and helps it feel appropriate, even in colder months.
BLACK + NAVY
Your grandmother might drop her jaw, but it’s time we toss out the old-school rule about never wearing black with blue. Together, they add major visual depth and allow you more fun and liveliness than going full-on monochromatic.
BRICK RED + BRIGHT BLUE
Turns out Superman was really onto something. These two vivacious colors make for one powerful dream team with an authoritative effect. There you go, off to save the world.
