Fashionable Cruelty-Free Clothes @ GoJane!

If you’ve ever sneaked a peek at a designer leather jacket or longingly fingered a quilted lambskin purse or shrugged into a thick fur coat, you’ve probably realized that these luxury clothing items are all sorts of pricey. However, it’s not just sticker shock that sends well-heeled ladies running; for some of us fashionistas we can’t quite imagine draping ourselves in animal fur. But, this may cause you to incredulously wonder, “Can I snag fashionable clothing that’s not made of animals?” The answer is most definitely yes. Plus, clothing, accessories, and shoes made from synthetic materials tend to be way less expensive than their animal counterparts. We’ve gathered up some sophisticated items from GoJane that show you can be both classy and cruelty-free.
