FASHION

Women's Coats

Freezing temperatures, tornado winds, and massive snowfalls... certainly no one is impervious to October and beyond in these parts of the world. It makes sense we would need to seek out fabulous vegan-friendly outerwear (suits of armour, if you will) to shield us from the ridiculously harsh elements! Luckily, there is a vegan plethora of warm vegan options to choose from as we approach a new vegan decade! Because faux down, faux wool, faux fur, and faux shearling are all the rage (joining the faux leather mainstay)—and you can find them from completely vegan AND mainstream non-vegan companies alike. In tons of colours! And unlike the food industry, which prefers the "plant-based" label, the fashion industry is actually embracing "vegan" as a sales-booster! Now the only cold bully left is that internet troll.
