These vegan leather jackets are cruelty-free and perfect for the animal-loving fashionista.
It’s almost fall, which means it’s time to start planning how you’ll transition from being a sweaty grease monster to shuddering at the prospect of leaving your warm bed and teddy bear in the morning. Solution: you just need the perfect outerwear! If you want to get warm, look good, and love animals, you should snag one of these gorgeous vegan leather jackets to wear all autumn long.
It’s hard to deny that a leather jacket is a timeless sign of “cool.” From James Dean to Grease to Morpheus, when you see a leather jacket on somebody, you know they mean business. But what if you don’t actually want to wear leather? Going cruelty-free is easier and simpler than one might think, especially when it comes to a staple like the leather jacket. And snagging a faux alternative to this piece is the perfect way to start or add to your cruelty-free and vegan collection.
There are several different kinds of vegan leather, and it can be made with a variety of finishes and in different colors, so there’s no chance your style will have to dramatically change just because you’re not wearing animals. Plus, more designers than ever have been getting down with the fake stuff, so there’s a ton of variety at lots of price points. The following range in color, texture, and structure, and there are plus-size options, too. Check ’em out!
