Autumn: the magical time of falling leaves, vegan pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween…and the reassuring comfort of autumnal fashion. Rich hues, cosy textures and an array of accessories are just a few of the reasons why we are excited about leaving the warmer months behind and heading towards the chill.
During the last few years, vegan-friendly cold-weather fashion has gotten even more exciting: brands like HoodLamb are offering quilted jackets free from down as well as fur, faux fur brand Jakke is proudly announcing that their knitwear is Free From Wool, and brands like Alexandra K are making bags out of apple leather. Plainly put, the new season of vegan fashion is as enticing as a bucket full of gelatin-free Halloween candy. So grab a pumpkin spice latte and join us in perusing some of the most gorgeous autumnal fashion that this vibrant season has to offer.
The perfect look for days when you want a relaxed yet on-point outfit, balance the whimsical elegance of this striped dress with the elegance of the burgundy Matt and Nat backpack and finish the look with vegan sneakers from Veja.
