Vegan Jackets Sorted By Style
1. Vegan Leather Jackets
Leather jackets are iconic, like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. 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.
Because there are so many different colors, styles and types of faux leather, we've sorted our guides as such. First, we have this one, which presents red faux leather coats and jackets.
Red faux leather jackets always pair well with black and white. A pair of black jeans and motorcycle boots will make a statement when you walk into any room.
For those who want a more toned-down color scheme, we also have a guide on white vegan leather jackets. We found so many different varieties for both men and women for lots of different occasions.
What does a white vegan leather jacket go with? Anything, really. White matches all colors of the rainbow, and in a jacket, it tends to add a bit of a softer tone that makes it more adaptable for various style choices. It can even be great for casual-dress scenarios.
When autumn rolls around, brown is a great color to think about. The jackets we picked below are perfect for keeping yourself warm in those months where there's a little bit of a chill, but it's not downright snowing or hailing.
Like the white style, the brown leather jacket is versatile. It's softer than a red or black jacket, and its earthy vibe makes for a laid-back appeal. Wear it when you want to be comfy and look effortlessly stylish in your jeans and tees.

2. Vegan Leather Hooded Jackets

The style of 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.
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.
Recently, faux fur coats have become hugely popular in fashion, in part due to a demand for cruelty-free options. You'll find them from online retailers to the display windows of boutiques and department stores.
From men's longline coats at H&M to women's teddy coats on Asos, we've got some of the latest 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.
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 all about 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. You never know when you'll be needing to don your best duds, and when you do, you'll need a coat to match.
Dress coats can be tricky because so many are wool-based, especially men's (like pea coats). Even if they're not 100 percent wool, they're often made with wool and synthetic or natural fiber blends.
However, all cotton or synthetic coats 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.
