If you're looking for a cruelty-free vegan jacket, then you've come to the right place. In this guide, we've listed out the best vegan jacket styles along with where you buy them online.
Let's get right to the jackets...
Where to Buy Vegan Jackets and Coats
The internet is a wonderful thing for vegan shoppers. We found tons of retailers offering vegan outerwear, but here are the best for style, dependability and price range:
Looking for a particular style? Read on for eight different styles and over a dozen trends (and where to pick them up).
Best Vegan Jacket and Coat Styles
1. Vegan Leather Jackets
Leather jackets are iconic, like peanut butter and jelly. They come in virtually every style, but the moto jacket is possibly the most recognizable with a notch collar, a short length and an asymmetrical zipper.
Because leather is an animal-derived product, it's not vegan. But don't worry—more designers than ever are using synthetic leathers, including Levi's, Guess and Tommy Hilfiger. You'll see these and more on our list of vegan leather jackets for men and women from Amazon, Zappos, Asos, Shopbop and Express (and beyond).
2. Vegan Leather Hooded Jackets
Vegan leather hooded jackets have gained quite a following. They're usually moto or biker jackets with hoods made of vegan leather or some type of soft sweater fabric.
Conveniently, they often feature detachable hoods so you have the option of wearing them with dressier or more casual attire. We found plenty for ladies and gents by Guess, Blank NYC, River Island and other trendy designers on Amazon, Zappos, Free People and Asos.
Take a look.
3. Vegan Fur Jackets
Imitating the look of real fur but made with cruelty-free synthetic fur, vegan fur jackets for men and women can be short, long, shaggy, plushy and all colors of the rainbow (some certainly are).
We're thrilled to report that faux fur is extremely accessible now that so many designers are opting out of real fur. Pop onto Zappos and H&M for posh and luxury options and Amazon, Asos, Urban Outfitters and other retailer websites we combed through for edgier and laid-back varieties to style with jeans and graphic tees.
4. Vegan Fur Coats
While vegan fur coats can sometimes be virtually indistinguishable from vegan fur jackets, a good rule of thumb is that the coats are warmer. Like vegan fur jackets, they can be any combination of shape, length and color—just a wee bit heavier.
From men's longline coats at H&M to women's teddy coats on Asos, we've got some of the latest, 100% vegan styles to show you on our vegan fur coats guide for easy, breezy shopping.
5. Vegan Pea Coats
The pea coat is an ultra classic style popularized by the British navy and now an overcoat staple. It's dress-casual, double-breasted with notch lapels and usually falling to about hip-length. Pea coats for men have been particularly stylish lately.
The thing about pea coats is that they're almost always made of wool or a wool blend—so they're almost always not vegan.
But fear not: we found some perfectly traditional vegan varieties you can purchase at Amazon and H&M.
6. Vegan Puffer Coats
Puffer coats are quilted, characterized by soft padding and stitching that gives them a segmented look. Fashion is kind of in love with them right now, so you'll find them pretty much anywhere you shop.
They're great for everyday fall to winter wear, casual and oh-so cozy. Just make sure they're padded with vegan materials. Polyester is a popular one.
Check out the chic men's and women's vegan puffer coats from Anthropologie, Asos, Amazon and Urban Outfitters on our vegan puffer coats list. We picked out the trendiest of the trendy from velvet, to belted, to faux fur-trimmed.
7. Vegan Down Coats
If you live in a land of particularly frosty winters, you might know down coats. They're usually pretty heavy-duty and insulated with goose or duck feathers, which is totally unvegan.
But brands like Alpine North on Amazon and Save the Duck on Zappos specialize in vegan down coats from puffers to parkas made with featherless insulators. Express and Vermont snowboard brand Burton also use synthetic fill and heat-reflective technologies to keep you super toasty.
8. Vegan Dress Coats
Whether it's for a gala or for business, a vegan dress coat is always a good idea to have hanging in your closet.
Dress coats can be tricky because so many are wool-based, especially men's (like pea coats). However, cotton and synthetic materials aren't impossible to find. Stick with us and we'll show you all the snazzy trench coats, faux fur coats and military styles we found on Amazon, Asos and H&M for your next fancy-dress event.
