I’m a Capricorn, and I can’t say for certain how deeply I connect with my sign. I started reading up on astrology around the same time my family was building fairy gardens (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets had just come out). This much is undeniably true: I save all of my money without any intention of spending it. Classic Capricorn.
Though, that’s changing. Each of these vegan-minded brands leaves me so inspired that I’ve now got a real reason to break out my wallet. By investing in quality statement pieces that last for the long haul, one cuts down on their personal amount of textile waste. By making responsible purchases from companies with ethical best practices and modes of production, we can support local communities and combat fast fashion together.
So, read up on your friends’ signs too — you may just discover you’re more Cancer than Leo when it all boils down to fashion.
Aries, March 21 to April 19
You’ve always been one for adventure. What surprises will the coming autumn bring you? Or, where may your courageous and energetic spirit meander? To match your uniquely high level of confidence, you’ll feel right at home in a statement tee that takes your inner passion for veganism and radiates it outward in a positive manner.

Plus, check out their quirky product description: “The worldly goats pictured on this crew sock are here to change the perception of goats. Afterall, was it not goats who first discovered coffee? Thank a goat for your next latte.” I’m sold.
Libra, September 23 to October 22
Known for your easy-going, sociable nature, you’re totally fine with throwing on a statement jacket and heading out the door. This hoodie will add an edge to any ensemble, it showcases an artist’s tattoo design, and it’s made from recycled polyester, cotton, and rayon.

Aquarius, January 20 to February 18
As a natural humanitarian, you’re bound to jive with Sydney Brown’s values. All of their products are cruelty free, made from recyclable or sustainable materials, and hand crafted with a commitment to sustainability. Plus, these chic slides are sure to match any outfit you already own.
Pisces, February 19 to March 20
With many garments made from rescued deadstock fabrics, this brand radiates intention. I could go on and on about their thoughtfully operated factory. For now, I’ll just highlight one of my favorite employee benefits: “We’ve even made getting to work part of our mission by offering Metro passes to our entire HQ team to encourage more use of public transportation.” As a kind and sympathetic sign, the Nectar Dress’ demure silhouette fits right in with your often light and flowy aesthetic.
