This is also fashion’s favorite time of year, but the biggest trend this season isn’t plaids or moto jackets or over-the-knee boots (although expect to see all three on the streets).
Why vegan is the new black.
Vegan fashion is hotter than ever. More and more consumers are ditching skins and embracing vegan “leather,” fake snake, faux fur, and other stylish synthetics after realizing that if a product came from an animal, the chance that abuse and suffering were involved is roughly 100 percent.
- PETA friend Emily Deschanel helped bring vegan glamour to the red carpet (and to living rooms across the country) when she wore a stunningly stylish animal-friendly ensemble to this year’s Emmy Awards show. Anne Hathaway regularly wears vegan shoes to awards shows, such as the strappy silver, custom Giuseppe Zanotti heels that she showed off at the Oscars.

Some of today’s biggest power players are trending vegan. Bill Gates and Twitter co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone are backing Beyond Meat, whose vegan mock meats taste like the real thing but don’t wreak havoc on the environment like meat production does. And former President Bill Clinton has been belting out praise for plant foods like he blasts out jazz on the saxophone.
From apples and Brussels sprouts to sweet potatoes and pumpkins, fall’s best superfoods are all vegan. So grab your favorite PETA tote and get ready to stock up at the farmer’s market.
