Vegan Winter Fashion Staples

vegan winter fashion staples

It is officially winter now! If you live in a climate that receives cold, snowy winters like I do, then warm winter clothes are a must. However, many winter clothing pieces such as coats, sweaters, and boots are made from cruelly obtained animal fibers and skins. Fortunately, cruelty-free vegan alternatives are just as warm and stylish! In this post, I will share my vegan winter fashion staples.

Jackets and Coats

There are plenty of warm coats that are made free of down, wool, and leather. Mine is from the company Columbia. I love how warm it is, despite how thin and lightweight it is. When the temperatures are subzero, I like to layer it with a faux fleece jacket for added warmth.

Warm Sweaters

Warm and snuggly sweaters are my go-to in the wintertime. Sadly, some sweaters are made from wool or angora. Fortunately, many stores carry vegan sweaters in a wide variety of styles and colors. Lately, I have been loving longer, oversized sweaters. They give a dressier vibe to an outfit and can also be worn with leggings.

Cozy Socks

Wearing cozy, crew-length socks with boots is a great way to keep your feet warm in the winter. Thick socks look so cute paired with boots. I love the extra texture they add to an outfit. Target and American Eagle carry many varieties of cozy, wool-free socks.

Waterproof Boots

Warm and waterproof boots are a must for staying warm in the winter snow. I adore these faux leather black combat boots I found on Amazon.com. Their thick rubber sole keeps my feet dry in rain and snow. I love the edgy flair they add to any outfit.

Hats, Gloves, and Scarves

Hats, gloves, and scarves are a must for protecting your fingers, ears, and face from the cold during the winter. Sweaters and jeans can get repetitive, so a cute beanie or scarf adds an eye catching touch to a plain outfit. Don’t be afraid try out fun colors and prints to fight the drab, gray winter!

No matter how you choose to dress this winter, please dress vegan! Before purchasing a garment of clothing, always read the label. If it contains wool, angora, leather, silk, or down, save a life and leave it on the shelf.

I hope this post gave you some compassionate winter fashion inspiration. Please let me know what your winter fashion staples are! 🙂

Best,

Leila
