Vegan Fall-Winter Clothing Essentials

The leaves are turning, the temperature is dropping, and all I can think about are cozy sweaters, bad hair day beanies, and warm scarves. Since adopting a vegan lifestyle I've been trying to not only pay attention to the food that I eat, but also to things like clothing and shoes.

If you want buy clothing free from animal products, here are a list of materials to avoid:

  • Wool (read this article on mulesing if you are wondering about the wool industry)
  • Leather
  • Cashmere
  • Alpaca
  • Shearling
  • Sheepskin
  • Angora
  • Down
  • Pashmina
  • Mohair
  • ANY type of animal fur

After seeing that list, you may be asking yourself if there is anything left to wear, especially in the colder months, or if you live in a generally colder climate. The answer is YES. The items I have curated below are just a few of many vegan options that are available. I just wanted to give you an idea of some stylish accessories, tops, coats, and boots that were available, since those are the items that usually contain animal products.
