Here at Good On You, one of the three areas we are most passionate about and look closely at when rating brands is animal welfare. When most of us think of vegan fashion, images of baggy hemp shirts and daggy, orthopaedic grandma shoes immediately spring to mind. This may have once been the case, but not anymore!
Today, we challenge you to forget what you think you know about vegan fashion: there’s a huge variety of ethical alternatives to animal products on the market that look just as good as the real thing, minus the cruelty. However, it’s worth remembering that just because something is vegan, that doesn’t necessarily guarantee it’s ethically or sustainably made. Fast fashion still perpetuates cruelty in a number of other ways, including using up precious natural resources and not paying workers a living wage.
So we’ve rounded up the best cruelty-free brands out there: these brands are stylish and innovative and cater to a wide range of tastes, so there is something for everyone. And even if you’re not vegan, or environmental or labour issues are more important to you, all of these brands rate ‘Good’ or ‘Great’, which means they are also making an effort for people and the planet! That’s some solid intersectionality we love to see.
Read on to discover the best vegan fashion brands out there that look good, do good by our animal friends, and deserve your support!
