17 great vegan coats and puffers for the UK 2022-3

Girl in vegan coat in the UK

When the weather turns cooler, a good winter coat is essential. So, with winter fast approaching, we’re rounding up the best UK vegan coat and jacket styles. Whether you are searching for the perfect blazer, the coolest biker jacket or a snuggly puffer jacket, we have you covered.

Materials derived from animals are commonly used for coats and jackets: Leather has always been a popular choice, the insulating properties of wool make it an in-demand choice for winter wear, and down is common in puffer jackets and adventure wear clothing.

Vegan alternatives

As the focus has increasingly grown on animal welfare practices, there has been a spotlight on animal rights in the fashion sector. Many consumers, not only vegans, now choose to stay away from animal products when deciding what to buy.

Alternative materials to animal products that can be used for outerwear include:

  • Vegan leathers – there is a range of plant-based leathers coming to the fashion sector. This includes materials made from cactus, apples and pineapple plants. See our post on the latest plant-based leathers for more info.
  • Organic cotton, linen and hemp – used more for lighter coats and jackets, these materials provide good alternatives to animal-based materials. We have articles on each of these fabrics highlighted in the links.
  • Synthetics – At present, a large proportion of vegan jackets and coats are made with synthetic fabrics. While this does come with environmental issues, some of these can be partially mitigated by using recycled products.

To find brands specialising in eco-friendly waterproof jackets and vegan fashion brands check out our articles. And if you’re looking for vegan shoes, we line up the best 32 brands in the UK.
