Vegan fashion isn’t just for vegans. Perhaps you’re trying to take an animal-friendly approach to fashion. Or maybe you just don’t want to splurge on genuine leather boots for fall. Whatever your reason for giving vegan fashion a go, you have more options than ever this season to do faux leather the right way. The best part about the vegan fashion trend is that you can achieve the look of clothing and accessories made with leather, suede, or fur without a single animal being harmed in the process. Plus, synthetic and natural materials can be used to create textures and fabrics that are often more weather-resistant than real leather. So, let out your inner vegan and give vegan fashion a try!
This chevron clutch ($34) from Blue Nini is made of cotton and moleskin, a woven cotton fabric. The moleskin portion of the clutch has the look and feel of suede without the use of animal products.
Vegan leather is a synthetic fabric that resembles genuine leather. In the case of this perforated top ($59) from Piperlime, polyester has never been more stylish.
Faux leather jackets, like this peplum jacket ($168) from Free People, are edgy statement pieces for your closet this fall. This jacket has a feminine flare without the bulk of many trendy motorcycle jackets.
These Dr. Marten Vegan 1460 boots ($129.95) are beyond fierce. You can pair them with a faux leather jacket for an extra punk look or dress them up with tights and a skirt.
This faux leather dress ($98) from Piperlime is definitely the way to go when it comes to vegan fashion. It makes an all-leather dress much more accessible. Plus, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that no animal was harmed for you to look this stylish.
