Like underground kickboxing, finding the perfect ensemble requires flexible limbs, a balanced knowledge of styles, and a willingness to go shirtless in compact, windowless rooms. Attack the shelves with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of apparel and accessories, including sale items, purchased in-store at Gap, which has hundreds of locations nationwide. Today’s Groupon is not valid for online or previous purchases, or at Gap Outlet, Gap Factory, or Gap Generation stores; however, it is valid at babyGap, KidsGap, and GapBody.Since its first store opened more than 40 years ago, Gap has been clothing knee trunks in premium jeans, swathing stomachs in swanky shirts, and adorning spleens with fashionable, shiny accessories. The latest manifestation of the company’s devotion to fresh styles and high-grade fabric: a new line of women’s black pants. Ruthlessly resistant to lint and wrinkles, this versatile leg armor can fight static while fielding spellbound stares at work, at happy hour, through dinner at a fancy restaurant, and into the wee hours, or simply while riding a freshly painted horse. The black pants are made from premium material that’s stretchy or relaxed depending on which of the seven tailored fits you choose. There’s true straight, skinny, curvy, boot cut, slim crop, boy fit (relaxed and roomy), and perfect trouser (slim hips and flowing bottom cuffs). Likewise, today’s deal lets you select any of Gap’s premium 1969 Jeans to fit your physique: The men’s vintage wash standard fit jeans please classic cowpokes, while the authentic fit, whiskered wash jeans outfit scores of sincere cat people. Fashionable females can alphabetize their wardrobe with the ballerina gown pintucked raw-edge top, the shawl collar cardigan, and embossed floral belt.
If every Gap storefront around the world—from LA and Paris to Milan and Beijing—were set in a row, a window-shopper would stroll for about 10 miles to pass them all. Despite its international presence, the brand’s known for stocking quintessential American wardrobe staples, including cashmere sweaters, graphic tees, and lots and lots of denim. They also stock seasonal, trending items that inject an immediate jolt of energy to outfits. Colorful woven pullovers transform plain pencil skirts into charming cocktail wear, metallic heels add a festive note to blue jeans, and puffer coats make it easy to sneak candy canes into movie theaters.
Gap Inc. includes five like-minded brands, each with a classic yet never dull aesthetic. Founded in 1969, Gap offers inventive American style. Clean, classic clothing and accessories help customers express their individual sense of style. Old Navy designs fuss-free apparel and accessories for the entire family. Banana Republic’s signature style is luxurious and finely tailored; it includes covetable yet uncomplicated office apparel and dressier everyday looks. In one popular collection, the brand collaborated with Mad Men to produce sleek vintage-inspired attire. A favorite among fashion bloggers, Piperlime’s online shop sells curated designer apparel and accessories from labels such as Frye, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, and Hunter. Finally, Athleta re-imagines women’s workout gear in designs without compromise, so every piece in their collection—from compression tights to swimsuits to snow gear—is at once flattering, stylish, and performance-focused.
