If you’re in the UK like me, you may be wondering if Spring weather is ever going to arrive. Rain, hail and sun, all in the space of 24 hours is pretty common at this time of year… so what do we wear? Whilst it may not be time to pack away the waterproof coat just yet, we can certainly start shopping for some lighter outfits. Layered dresses, long skirts and shorts, and bold tees are all good ideas for Springtime – but of course, we want them to be cruelty-free. I’ve taken away the shopping confusion and scoured the web for the best vegan Spring fashion, so you don’t have to! Everyone deserves to feel good, and that’s why I’ve included men, women and children in my research.
Don’t worry… I haven’t forgotten your ethics. All of these picks are 100% vegan-friendly and ethically sourced, meaning no labour exploitation. No label-checking required… just add to your basket and hit the checkout button.
Vegan Spring Fashion – What’s In?
The wide disco collar was definitely a predominant style on the Spring/Summer 2020 catwalk. It was found on coats and jackets, often with contrasting colours so that it would really stand out! If that’s a little much for you, how about crochet? Lovely feminine dresses and light tops using this technique, are making a big appearance. If you’re a really bold fashionista, hot pants are making a return, as are bright highlighter colours. Need something for the office? Bermuda shorts with suits are also gracing the runways. Read more about some of the ladies trends over at Harpers Bazaar.
And what about the guys? Well sportswear is out and suits are back in, but this time they’re oversized and in pastels and creams. Give it a go in the office! There have also been a lot of pockets making an appearance – think utility jackets and tactical, military gear. Denim is also as popular as ever – but it’s being spruced up with colours, paints and embroidery. And how about shoes? Well tough chunky soles are in for Spring, and that’s for both trainers and formal wear. Will you be giving any of these trends a trial run?
In our vegan Spring fashion picks below you’ll find a mixture of bang on trend clothing items, along with timeless classics that I just couldn’t resist. Besides, we don’t all take notice of fashion trends – meaning some of these pieces are staples, and will still look great next Spring too. Bonus!
Men – Vegan Spring Fashion Picks
I love Ethical Superstore! It’s like a one-stop shop for all the best things in vegan life. You can get clothes, groceries, and beauty products all in one place. Focusing on their men’s clothing, this shop is stocking so many gorgeous vegan Spring fashion pieces from different brands, that it was hard to pick just one item. So I went with three! Click on each image if you want to be taken through to the item and full site.
Remember how I said that chunky soles and trainers were back in fashion? Well if you want the highest quality, look no further than Will’s Vegan Store. Their shoes are carbon-neutral certified, making them not only vegan but great for the planet, too. WVS products are well-known for their quality and longevity, and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing many of the range up close at vegan fairs. They currently have prices starting at £55, so get in there quick to snap up a bargain!
Looking for something a little warmer that’s suitable for work too? Check out this sweater from The Hemp Shop. Made from organic cotton and recycled hemp, it’s light and breathable, but warm enough to protect you from the Spring breeze. You can grab it in Charcoal or Sea Blue.
Casual not doing it for you? Prefer to stand out from the crowd? Check out this funky Whippet print from Thought. Perfect for an evening meal out, first date or work meeting! Thought also sell women’s clothes, so get something for the special lady in your life while you’re there and make use of free delivery.
I’m also loving the selection from The Third Estate. They’re a completely animal-free clothing store that sell both popular and niche brands. If you’re in London, go and pay their Camden store a visit! You can, of course, order online too. Here are a few pieces they currently have on the website:
Women – Vegan Spring Fashion Picks
We just have to kick off with Ethical Superstore as they sell so many great vegan brands… With free delivery on orders over £50 and a 30-day ‘no questions asked’ returns policy, it’s hard NOT to take advantage of this website. They have some stunning bold prints ready for Spring, so you’ll be bang on trend. Here are just a few of my picks:
I’m a big fan of People Tree, who have a great mix of timeless classics, and on-trend colourful outfits. Do be aware that their whole website isn’t vegan, but they do have a dedicated vegan section. Their vegan clothing includes knitwear, tops and trousers, and has been designed from sustainable and eco-friendly organic cotton.
Need new shoes for Spring after wearing out your comfy boots all Winter? Me too! I highly recommend Beyond Skin. This store is a little pricier than some I’ve mentioned, but completely worth it for the quality. Their shoes will last you forever! Beyond Skin’s sustainable and leather-free footwear is all ethically and beautifully handmade in Spain. If you want to stand out, this is the place to shop. This is my favourite so far (and they even have some sale items too!).
I also wanted to mention PO-ZU, as they are a lesser known brand. Their shoes are edgy, with great graphics and a long-lasting sole. You can buy for men, women and children here.
If you’re in the mood for something a little more casual, you can’t get better than Organic Basics for comfort, neutral tones, and ethical standards. They even do the most comfortable bras (I practically live in mine) and other underwear. Here’s just one of their offerings (PS. they do menswear too).
Sometimes we want a little something that shows off our vegan status. If you like to wear your morals on your sleeve, or attend a lot of activism events, Viva La Vegan has some great new additions. I’m slightly in love with their tee designs.
Children – Spring Fashion
I always think that vegan children’s clothes are a little harder to come by, unless you know where to look. Luckily, there are some brilliant UK stores with cute cruelty-free buys for your little fashionistas.
Little Green Radicals have a brilliant selection, from newborn babies right up to age 8. Here’s a selection of my favourite clothing items, for girls and boys.
Frugi is a well-known brand that most parents love. They’ve recently announced their Spring/Summer 2020 outfits – and as always, they’re stunning! Designs are predominantly based around the ocean, with many mermaids, sharks and fish. It was so difficult to pick just a few pieces to showcase, so do go over and visit the site for yourself.
Last (but certainly not least), I had to give a mention to Sense Organics, a lesser known company that has the cruelty-free seal of approval. Their clothes are very affordable, they often have a sale on, and the designs are to die for. Here’s a snapshot of what they offer:
