Well ladies and gents, its about that time again: dreaded winter weather time. We wanted to wrap up our favorite cruelty free and vegan winter coats for all you snow bunnies out there!
I am a warm weather gal myself, but having lived in the Midwest my whole life I have learned a thing or two about how to survive the dreaded long winters here in Wisconsin. Most notably, ones wardrobe MUST have the warmest of winter coats.
I have had the same winter coat for years now but recently noticed it was time for an upgrade. However, I came to find that down free, fur free vegan winter coats were actually hard to come by.
Luckily, for us vegans out there, there are a few amazing companies changing the game and offering up the chicest of cruelty free winter coats. Browsing gorgeous ethical winter clothing is about all that gets me excited for the impending snow falls.
