The fashion industry is one of those industries that has such a huge impact on lifestyles, and more importantly on the planet’s sustainability. So it's not surprising that several big name brands like Stella McCartney and other notable inspiring new names are changing the game in vegan fashion. They’re making a lot more of an effort to fill your wardrobe each season with clothing designs that eliminate the use of furs and animal skins.
McCartney explains that she only recently got into using fake leather for her brand because of the fear that the luxury status would be downgraded because it did not look fancy enough. She shared her joy in the brand’s new cruelty-free fashion philosophy and happily introduced a collection of everything from handbags to running shoes that made use of fake leather.
These new developments are exciting and commendable, and with spring here you don’t need to have any more inner conflicts with getting the wardrobe revamp you’re in need of.
Eco-friendly, vegan designs with pops of color are here in impressive variety and we’re happy to show you some of the pieces we’re loving.
Here are 5 of the wish list-worthy vegan items you should add to your wardrobe this Spring:
Looking for stylish tees that raise consciousness about climate change, as well as the everyday choices you make as a vegan?
These two brands, offer versatile and fashionable tees to help you dress like you give a damn about the future of our planet and make a statement while you’re wearing it.
The London-based vegan shoe brand, Wills has the nicest shoe designs for both men and women, so you don’t have to settle for ugly looking sneakers or compromise on your ethics anymore. The new spring collection features gorgeous all-black and all-white sneakers that are sure to impress any fashionista looking for a good pair.
It’s top quality vegan leather, combined with a canvas look, will keep you looking classy this spring.
Looking good yet staying warm in spring could be a bit of a hassle. Sweaters and thick jackets don’t appeal to the weather or most outfits, and most coats don’t do the job either. Floaty trench coats are perfect for this time of the year, and what better designer to rock than Stella McCartney.
There are other decently priced offerings out there that are equally ethical if this one won’t fit the budget. You can check out some options from a UK-based brand, Fashion Conscience.
Wearing the perfect bag is a nice way to dress up or dress down any outfit or add color to it. It’s an easy way that works and there’s a wide range of vegan bags that go with everything these days.
We’re loving the Canadian vegan brand, Matt & Nat, and their gorgeous bucket bags. You’d definitely have lots of fun pairing outfits this spring and summer with any bag from their collection!
Stylish accessories are so important, and in case you’re struggling to find a fake leather watch that’s high quality yet fashionable. You can check out some vegan leather strapped watches from Olivia Burton’s vegan-friendly collection or try out some of the new watch companies that are completely vegan like Votchi Watches (based in the UK).
They’re mostly minimalistic in design which is great, and there’s a good variety of cute colors, neutrals and nudes.
What items are you considering buying? There are so many new cruelty-free fashion brands out there so don’t let this list stop you checking all of them out for the best spring fashion.
