Winter is here…
and snow is likely to arrive soon too. It’s now that time to wear jumpers, jackets and boots.
I can help you stay on point, but with none of the cruelty involved.
Perhaps it’s your first winter buying ethical clothing and you’re not sure where to start looking? I’ve put together a round-up of the best websites to buy your vegan fashion items from, as well as top picks! I’ve included on-trend pieces, as well as timeless classics and essentials, to suit every taste.
Thought are an amazing website for women AND men. They sell ethical clothes made from a variety of materials, such as recycled polyester, hemp, organic cotton and bamboo. You can also filter by vegan clothing really easily, so shopping is simple! Go check them out.
My picks from Thought:
This is one amazing company. Completely run by vegans, with profits being used for activism and sanctuaries, Heartcure has a clear mission. The best bit is, their clothes are top notch too. Their latest collection is right on trend and includes items for men, women and children.
This one is for the ladies! If you’re looking to make an impression, wearing something nobody else has, this is the winter brand for you. Forget beige, because Alice Vandy is all about colour and standout prints. This lady won PETA’s Best New Designer in 2014 and has come a long way since then. With these clothes, you don’t even have to care about trends, or getting cold.
Trend – Leather
Leather is back in and as vegans, we don’t have to miss out. We can get our fashion fix 100% cruelty-free with these finds.
Free People aren’t an exclusively vegan brand, but they do have a great vegan section, and are an ethical company. I love these offerings:
Will’s Vegan Shoes do amazing footwear, ‘leather’ and otherwise. I’ve seen the products in person and the quality is unparalleled. They’re a carbon neutral certified company (wow!) and also sell bags, wallets and belts.
Brothers We Stand
One for the guys this time! This company focuses heavily on ethical production, with every item having its own environmental footprint. They have a dedicated vegan section with jeans and jackets, perfect for that colder weather. Here are my favourites:
Viva La Vegan
If you’re already vegan and you want people to know it, these clothes are for you. Viva La Vegan use fashion as a form of activism, with bold statements and eye-catching art. They believe that clothing items aren’t just for fleeting trends, they can be used to spread compassion… all while looking your best! They also sell children’s wear. Their cosy winter pieces vary wildly, so go have a look for yourself. In the meantime, have a look at my favourites:
These guys were founded in 1991 and know what they’re doing. No fast fashion here, just fair trade. They personally know their suppliers, growers and producers, opposing sweatshops and child labour. Buying from People Tree, you know that your clothing has a positive story behind it. *Be aware that a few items contain wool and are not vegan, so do check individual clothing items.
Before I leave you, I’d also like to mention Bare Fashion. They held London’s first vegan fashion show, and it was wildly successful. There are plans to hold shows in the future, so do check them out if you’re a hardcore fashionista.
