Vegan Fashion | A Pop Of Oxblood

How do you style oxblood? it’s a tricky color yet very classy and quite unique as a wardrobe staple. Can you wear it past fall season? I say why not. If you know me, my clothes are 90% black so I break the monotony through my bags or shoes such as this date lunch casual ensemble. I think with a choker long sleeved top loosely tucked in, boyfriend jeans with slit detail, black belt with double o ring, this oxblood duo featuring Alexandra K 1.3 satchel (reviewed here) and vintage-y sneakers from Veja (reviewed here) is effortlessly stylish. A sleek ponytail and hot pink lipstick completes the look, what do you think? (read: how to veganize your wardrobe)

This vegan handbag from Alexandra K is made from silicone. I do have another one (same style) that’s made from apple leather (apple peels). Pretty inventive. And the best part, her bags are made in small batches by artisans all around Poland. You will see in this video that each handbag has a unique serial code with corresponding two-year warranty.

This pair of sneakers from Veja are made from recycled plastic bottles. Again talk about reinventing the fashion scene. These are made from Portugal (read: tips to buying vegan shoes)

You see, vegan fashion has come a long way. Gone are the days of low quality PVC and PU (read: is vegan leather good or bad). With the ever changing and discriminating taste of consumers looking for high quality vegan wardrobe staples, I like the fact that companies like Alexandra K and Veja are upping their game. For reference, Alexandra K is full vegan, Veja has vegan options (read: 5 tips to buying your first designer handbag).

    I love oxblood! In fact, I was looking at an oxblood vegan tote today. Sadly, it was a bit too large for me. Love your new one!
