Step into winter with Sarah Dawson’s round-up of the best, vegan-friendly jumpers out there.
The high street is full of the latest AW18 collections, ringing in the new season with a knock-out selection of jumpers and sweaters, that are vegan-friendly and purse-friendly. Surely the hardest working piece in any wardrobe, jumpers are our go-to whether it’s for a day in the office or a chilled-out weekend at home.
Many high street jumpers are now free from animal-derived materials, but it’s always worth checking the label to make sure you avoid the usual suspects like wool, leather trimmings, fur or silk. Whether you’re after a classic wardrobe staple to wear time and again, or a fun, trend-led jumper to brighten your day, we’ve found the best high street stores to hit, to get your vegan fashion fix this winter.
Thick chunky jumpers, slouchy oversized knits, embellished statement pieces and cute slogan sweaters; Dorothy Perkins manages to tick every AW18 knitwear trend going. With most pieces coming in at under £30, it’s the place to head for affordable yet vegan-friendly jumpers that will see you through every kind of occasion this winter.
Marks & Spencer
No one else designs such wearable, everyday pieces quite like this Great British high street institution. Available in a huge choice of colours – everything from hot pink to forest green – these quality wardrobe essentials will look just as good with a pair of jeans as they will with a printed midi skirt. Stock up now!
If you’re looking for a quick fashion fix on a budget, Primark is your best friend. Packed full of cool and colourful knits in animal-friendly materials, their AW18 range includes quirky rainbow knits, cute cropped styles and sporty designs to add some character to your wardrobe.
We know the quality isn’t going to last forever, but it’s enough to see you through the season in style. Just be sure to recycle or donate to charity once you’re done…
Animal print is a huge trend this winter thanks to designers like Stella McCartney, so get a piece of the action with an eye-catching jumper from the new Oasis AW18 collection.
A bold leopard print knit looks effortlessly cool teamed with a faux-leather mini skirt or skinny jeans and with prices less than £40, you’ll have no excuse not to take a walk on the wild side this winter.
Reinventing classics in a modern way, COS is the ultimate destination for style-conscious men and women who want to invest in pieces that will last. Perfectly simple, stylish jumpers, cut just right and in wearable colours, are what they do best – and at under £60 a piece, it’s affordable quality. Although the store does also offer a selection of wool-based knits, there’s still a covetable collection of animal-friendly jumpers for vegan shoppers.
We’ve fallen in love with the 100% cotton, unisex jumpers by this independent label. Perfect for nailing the off-duty surfer vibe, these ‘throw on with anything’ crew-neck knits are inspired by a childhood spent on the British seaside, wrapped up warm in oversized, vintage jumpers. The quality is top drawer, the fit is perfect and we challenge you to find a jumper you’ll cherish as much as this! Currently only available online at oldharry.com.
