So you want to be a stylish ethical fashion icon but don’t know how. Good choice, as the number of people interested in ethical fashion labels, is growing faster than ever, across the entire globe.
A recent market report shows that 75% of 22 to 39-year-old fashion buyers are willing to spend more on products made by fashion labels engaged in ethical and sustainable practices.
It is the clearest indication that the fashion industry is progressing towards a conscious future and a potential glimpse into the styles of tomorrow.
Why potential? Because there is this common misconception that fashion can’t be stylish and ethical at the same time.
However, we’re here to prove them wrong with a top 5 labels that let you be a stylish ethical fashion buyer, with zero compromises.
1. Stylish Ethical Fashion – TOMS
Famous for their unique shoe design, TOMS has recently launched its own vegan shoes line. Long known for its ethical practices, TOMS’ announcement didn’t come as a surprise.
Simple, casual, and modern, TOMS shoes are some of the best you can wear if you want to show the world that you care about the planet and animals.

Moreover, with every purchased pair of shoes, another pair is donated to people in need, so you’re equally ethical at the same time.

5. Stylish Ethical Fashion – Stella McCartney
I don’t think we can talk about being a stylish ethical fashion buyer without talking about Stella McCartney.
The British designer has been a pioneer of the vegan movement, so it is only normal that her fashion lines are made from cruelty-free, sustainable materials.
Style-wise, there’s very little to talk about Stella’s amazing creations as she’s now considered more stylish than consecrated fashion brands, such as Burberry, Gucci, Versace, and so on.
To close the article, one could say that while waiting for more brands to become more sustainable in their approach to fashion, there are some things you can do as well.
For example, buying responsibly – every time you shop – is a conscious choice in its own that has profound positive outcomes in the long run.
However, until then, bear in mind that there’s never been a better time to become a stylish ethical fashion buyer than now.
