When I started on my vegan journey, I thought that I wouldn't be able to shop at all the places I used to love, but that couldn't be less true. It think it's broadened my perspective, in the sense that I have able to find amazing cruelty-free pieces at my old favorite stores and be introduced to great ethical lines as well. For example, Kate Spade and Ted Baker actually have a lot more vegan-friendly clothes than I was anticipating. This rose print pleated skirt is so light and airy- I'm wearing the girls size for a more petite fit, but I also linked the women's midi version. Another one of my favorites is J. Crew, and they make a lot of wool-free sweaters. Their cotton Jackie cardigan is a staple, and I have at least 5 different colors.
Even big designers occasionally release vegan pieces, since veganism is on the rise and they love tapping into the market (for example, Givenchy released a vegan Antigona bag that sold out almost immediately.) I love Phillip Lim's designs, but most of his bags are leather. The 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target collab yielded some amazing Pashli bags made from polyurethane, and I was lucky enough to snag mine on Poshmark.
Ethical fashion is so easy to find, and introducing more of it into your life doesn't have to mean giving up anything. If anything, it has introduced me to a whole new world of style!
