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 Spring picks, 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.
Spring Fashion – What’s In?
From trench coats to dresses to suits, beige was definitely a predominant colour on the Spring/Summer 2019 catwalk. Some outfits were top-to-toe neutral, with others accessorising with oranges and greens. Lace is also making a comeback at fashion shows. No longer exclusive to fancy lunches and sexy nightwear, there are plenty of casual clothes with lace trims on the market. And if you really want to go all out, trimmings such as feathers and fringe seem to be making plenty of appearances too. Just make sure those feathers are fake! Prints are also continuing to make a storm, and that’s why you’ll find quite a few in this post – particularly floral and bold colours. Perfect for a nice Spring dress!
Coral is also the clothes colour of 2019, so if you’re a hardcore fashionista, extra points if you can match these trends with that too!
And what about the guys? Well tailored suits are back in, so dig out those work suits or invest in a new one. Super short shorts are also prominent on the catwalks, so if you’re feeling super-confident, go for it! There’s no excuse to stop skipping leg day at the gym now… Sage green is also a popular colour, creeping onto sportswear, Spring macs and smart trousers. Lastly, it seems as if hiking sandals are no longer reserved for walking holidays. Men’s sandals were at just about every show! Just make sure you leave your socks behind.
In our 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 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. Seriously, be prepared for me to mention it a few times through this post. Focusing on their men’s clothing, this shop is stocking so many gorgeous Spring 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 site.
Remember how I said that sandals were back in fashion? Well if you want the highest quality, look no further than Bourgeois Boheme. Their shoes are artisan-made in Portugal using eco-friendly Italian vegan leather. Bourgeois Boheme products are well-known for their quality and longevity. They currently have offers on with prices starting at £35, 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 these bold prints from Thought. Perfect for an evening meal out, first date or work meeting! Thought also sells 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 sells 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 should really kick off with Ethical Superstore as they sell so many great vegan brands… I did say I’d mention them more than once on this page! 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 our 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. Here are my favourite pieces so far (and they even have some sale items too!).
I also wanted to mention PO-ZU, seeing 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. They also designed a Star Wars collection (see below)!
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. Plus, I’ve bagged a discount code with them. Just enter ‘organicbasicsxsas15’ at the checkout for 15% off EVERYTHING! They even do the most comfortable bras (I practically live in mine) and other underwear, so make the most of your discount. Here’s a selection 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 – Vegan Spring Fashion Picks
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 19 outfits – and as always, they’re stunning! Collections include ‘Puffin and Friends’, ‘Over the Rainbow’ and ‘Hop on Board’. 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:
