There is nothing like a brand-new bag to accessorize your look. From turn-lock wallets to studded clutches to oversized satchel bags, there is a stylish cruelty-free version of every fashion trend, and I’m a sucker for them all. If your winter wardrobe is in need of some sprucing up in the form of envy-inspiring accessories, you’re in luck!
Cruelty-free fashion can be found everywhere. Popular stores like H&M and Forever 21 are go-to destinations for any vegan shopper on a budget, but the options don’t stop there. High-end designers like Stella McCartney, Betsey Johnson, and Gunas offer beautiful handbags and accessories that will make you feel good on the inside and look good on the outside. We all know there is nothing glamorous about wearing leather or exotic skins that have been barbarically stolen for fashion.
The designer and founder of the luxury line Gunas had this to say about the role of veganism in fashion: “Veganism is not just limited to the foods we eat. It extends far beyond that and trickles down into every aspect of our lives. It is a philosophy and a way of life. Just like art, fashion has been a powerful tool in defining and questioning the times we live. Adopting veganism into fashion is my way of showing others the way I perceive the world; through a lens of compassion, beauty and style.”
