Vegan fashion is coming into it’s own this year with more people than ever before opting for faux-leather and fur over animal skins. This surge in demand for cruelty-free fashion has seen many innovative new vegan fashion labels popping up, as well as established brands offering up vegan and animal-friendly fashion, and even some brands making the commitment to go vegan! However, we know that whilst many of these products are animal-friendly, they’re not particularly wallet-friendly, so we’ve rounded up some affordable, sustainable vegan fashion that won’t break the bank!

TOMS – Vegan Collection, £14.99- £74.99
Thought TOMS only sold canvas slip-ons? Think again!
You may be familiar with TOMS slip-on canvas pumps, and their commitment to providing shoes, sight, water and safer birth services to people in need with every purchase made, but did you know they have a very wide (and affordable!) vegan collection?
Prices start from £14.99, and the range includes shoes for both children and adults alike! Kids can take their pick of canvas pumps and funky wellie-boots, whilst adults can choose from a range of TOMS signature slips-ons, as well as brogues, wedge boots and sneakers.
These striking boots may be at pricier end of the affordability scale, but you’re paying for quality with Will’s as they’re lovingly handmade in Portugal using Italian faux leather, and are both water resistant and breathable – making then practical as well as stylish! Will’s vegan shoes are built to last, so you won’t have to pick up another pair of boots for a long time, which is good news for your wallet, and for the planet too!
You might be shaking your head at the price of these boots, but hear us out! Not only are they hand-made using premium Italian faux-leather and water-resistant, they’re an absolute steal at £104 compared to comparable boots on the market (both vegan and non-vegan). Fast fashion is not good for the planet, and although these fabulous boots are a tiny bit more expensive, they’re designed to last, so you won’t have to replace these any time soon!
Cruelty free living is more than the food on your plate. Visiting animal circuses, zoos, tourist animal rides supports funds animal-exploitation as entertainment. So why not make a bold stance and get people thinking about their entertainment choices with Viva La Vegan’s animal rights hoodie.
The super-cozy hoodie is made with 100% Organic combed cotton, printed with eco-friendly , vegan, water based dyes, and is ethically manufactured as part of the Fair Wear Foundation.
H&M – Biker Jacket, £49.99
The brilliant thing about faux-leather jackets is that they’re normally far cheaper than the animal-skin version, so you can look super cool without breaking the bank! We’re loving this effortlessly stylish faux-leather jacket from H&M, that comes in at under £50!
