If you’re curious about how you can make the switch to vegan fashion, here’s our ultimate guide to more ethically-minded vegan fashion sorted by categories.
What even is vegan fashion?
Whether you’re looking into veganism for the first time or need some new cruelty-free clothes, supporting vegan fashion brands can be a great option for sourcing versatile and even affordable threads.
While there is no overarching legal definition of these terms, “veganism” is typically defined as the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals.
When it comes to fashion, vegan clothing is any garment made without animal-derived materials. Some animal products, like leather, are pretty obvious, but others might be a little harder to spot. Other examples can include fur, mohair, wool, cashmere, angora, feathers, silk, or animal-derived dyes and glues.
At Good On You, our mission is to help you understand how brands impact the issues you care about. In line with this ethos, we’ve created a special list of our favourite vegan pieces divided by category—accessories, handbags, shoes, basics, and clothing.
