* Maintain your vegan lifestyle while shopping for clothes
* Many of these faux-leather options have the look and feel of real leather
* Choose from thick and thin, printed and plain options
While being vegan has proven dietary and ecological benefits, the fashion industry is a little slower to adopt its practices. However, as more awareness is being raised, we are seeing more and more options come into market for those animal-loving buyers – including leather alternatives that look just like the real thing, without harming the environment.
When it comes to accessories, we’ve already seen some stylish vegan handbag options. And now, SPY has found ten of the best belts from this season’s market options. From thin and printed, to thick and vintage-inspired, these’s a wallet-friendly and eco-friendly style for everyone.
1. Old Navy Belt for Women
Choosing vegan and cruelty-free products doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. Old Navy has created a simple, straightforward design that can transition from skirt, to shorts, to pants with ease. The one-inch width is an ideal size for a classic brown belt.
2. Maikun Women’s Skinny Leather Belt
For a slimmer option, this minimalist belt comes with a life-long warranty. Its high-quality manufacturing also makes it a great gift idea for your most eco-friendly friend, plus we love how the white color will look great with jeans, or wrapped around a dress.
3. MoYoTo Women’s Bowknot Buckle Patent Leather Belt
Made of faux leather, so you know no animals were harmed, this belt is design to be thrown over a loose blouse or dress to add some shape and preppiness. The thin width and delicate bow design make it super chic and feminine.
4. Wink Gal Women’s Vintage Western Faux Leather Belt
For a timeless, Western-inspired classic, this thick belt goes great with denim. And at less than $13, it won’t break your bank either. Try it with a great pair of jeans and cowboy boots if you’re going for the Western look, or dress it up with slacks or a dress for the office.
5. Damara Women’s Vintage Mental Buckle Belt
Made of premium PU, this belt includes 7 holes, so it’s suitable for a variety of sizes. Its vintage-style buckle is great to pair with summery shorts or an office-appropriate outfit (think a great pantsuit with statement pumps).
6. Bold Buckle Faux Leather Belt
To amp up a simple outfit, you need a statement belt. This chunky gold buckle matches well with gold accessories, while the styling has a subtle but not overpowering Western motif.
7. Lola Snake Embossed Faux Leather Skinny Belt
For something a little more avant garde, this snake printed skinny belt is made using embossed faux-leather. Its lighter coloring pairs well with darker shades, like black and ash gray.
8. ASOS Contrast Edge Jeans Belt
Specifically design to be paired with jeans of any color, its adjustable band allows you to wear it on your hips or waist. Made of 100% Polyurethane, it has the look and feel of real leather.
9. Halogen Patent Bow Belt
Another option in the patent bow model, this one from Halogen is pale pink, perfect to finish off that summer to fall wardrobe transition. Try it over a lace skirt or with a boho-style outfit.
10. Reversible Faux Crocodile Belt
To add a little texture to your faux leather, this belt is embossed with crocodile print for a subtle finish. It’s also reversible, so you can transition through a variety of looks from casual to dressy.
