New year, new adventures for Vilda: we are excited to introduce a monthly new feature, VildaOOTD, as in “outfit of the day”, a hashtag you might already be familiar with (if not, look it up on Instagram and prepare to be inspired to whip up a cool outfit or two).
To highlight the creativity and genuine flair shown by vegan fashionistas on Instagram, we will pick five inspiring, cutting-edge outfits each month that are not only 100% cruelty-free, but also put together with a keen eye for style. There will be bloggers, stylists, influencers, designers and other kinds of fashion tastemakers – but one thing we warmly welcome is for our readers to get in touch and show us your outfits. So next time you put together a vegan look you’re proud of, snap a photo and hashtag it #VildaOOTD – you might find yourself in this section (and on our social media).
Bina, Hamburg // StryleTZ
This vegan (yes, really!) jacket from Pepe Jeans is a winter dream. And matched with these dreamy Stella McCartney shoes and starry Falabella, it’s the height of cruelty-free perfection. This outfit gets top marks from us.
Marketa, Czech Republic // Marketa Bartova
The ultimate faux leather look, nicely interspersed with white skinnies. Plus points for the just-high-enough ankle boots and the bucket bag. Chic with a hint of edge
Noa, Israel // Style With a Smile
How to do feminine without succumbing to the saccharine realm of overt girliness. The grey of Noa’s sweater beautifully balances the cotton-candy pink of her skirt (get similar one here!). Applause.
Roxy, UK // The Eco Edit
A recent Vilda contributor, this mother of two and another on the way has mastered the art of sustainable maternity fashion like no other. Sleek skinnies with ankle boots expertly matched with a floaty blouse and floppy hat? Yes please. Just add cute dog and you’re ready to go.
Marta, Belgium/London // Marta Canga
She speaks about going leather-free on her blog – and it looks to us like Marta is perfectly up to the challenge. This faux-leather skirt strikes the perfect balance of casual and chic teamed with a denim skirt and brogues, topped off with the perfect winter coat.
This month’s five OOTD looks have captured winter elegance with a vegan twist – if you want to submit your own looks, just use the #VildaOOTD hashtag.
