Casual Chic – The Gap isn’t typically a place where I shop at often for myself. Their jeans are awkward fitting for me. However, when I need some formal causal clothes for work or want to pick up something quick as a gift for a friend. The kids section is great. If your looking for a great pair of khakis or a nice cardigan than this is the place to go! The adults section in the midtown location actually has vibrant colors and styles which is not something that I am accustomed to seeing in the other stores. I love the fact that when you order from the Gap you can also order directly in the store from the store locations and it only cost you one shipping fee. That way you can order something for everyone and get the most out of the shipping fee. The last order I made for a friends birthday involved me getting things from three different stores due to the availability of sizes. If your in to preppy attire and your fashion sense is laid back that then you as a shopper could benefit from the great customer service that the Gap offers at this location.
Essential Fashionable Clothes – This store is a huge staple in my wardrobe. It seriously is my savior as the weather sometimes changes faster than I’m ready for it. I could quickly stop at a gap or even shop online to get some basics to start my spring, summer, fall, or even winter wardrobe. Whether you need shirts for layering, comfy skirts or dresses, you’ll find your basic work or going out clothes at the gap.
I love shopping online but sometimes I have to go in to try on for size. Every time I stepped in this store I have found some deal on the sales rack. The sales people will definitely help you and will even get you a different size of whatever you need from the dressing room. Everything is pretty organized as well, so you could easily go from one area of the store to look for something casual or to the other side to get some accessories. Sometimes when I shop here I see a whole lot more than what I would online. Maybe it’s the way they lay out their clothes or pair it with other clothes, it seems much better in person. This season’s new arrivals features a lot of clothes with ties such as shorts, shirts, skirts, etc… And again, lots of lose or fitted clothing depending on your style.
I really enjoy shopping here; I can always find what I’m looking for. I don’t go to the Gap expecting to find super stylish clothes; I go there to pick up my essentials. My clothing attire totally needs those essentials too. You never know when you’re going to need that wonderful comfy button down to go with a suit or even a pair of jeans. This gap is great for all your basics.
Cotton, Comfortable, Quality- and now, Flair! – Gap has always had a preference for under-stated, neutral colors, and soft, quality cotton (no pilling!). They have mastered beige so well that they have several different shades of khaki and beige colored pants- all unique, all perfectly mastered colors, my favorites being the orangey-beige “Spice”, and the 70’s looking “Honey Brown”. This is what sophistication is about. Nuances.
Gap clothes stand for quality- this is not throw-away fashion- these are classics that last for years. That being said, for a long time, Gap struggled to stay stylish and relevant, and was often overshadowed by their sister brands, Banana Republic and Old Navy at both price poles. Gap has really upped the style factor most in their blouses and tops section. My favorites this season are their Gathered Dot and Cascade Tie Neck Blouse and rather elegant, Parisian looking, Print Tie Cuff top. They’ve also added a line of urban fedora and floppy hats in several varieties.
For shoes, Gap scores best on their simple, USEFUL, ballet slipper-like City Flats line, available in a wide spectrum of tasteful hues. Their open-toe crochet flats also hit the mark for this summers trends. Their shorts are also looking good, especially the flattering Clean Front shorts (Super Mauva being my favorite color you won’t find anywhere else).
Gap has slowly and steadily moved into the plus-size market, with sizes going up to 20 for dresses, skirts and pants. Their clothes also tend to be loose-fitting and stretchy. Online offers a range of special sizes; Women's Petite and Tall, Men’s Big & Tall, Boy’s Slim and Husky, and Girl’s Slim and Plus, and of course, Maternity.
Sticking to the basics has allowed this clothing store to flourish with its khaki-turned-vibrant color palette and comfortable materials. – In Short
Fall into this all-American clothing store, whose crisp white interior houses a variety of clothing basics, all subtly stylish and classically chic. While once a world of earthen-toned khaki pants and button-downs, today the store has embraced feminine detailing for women, vintage-y T-shirts for guys and a bright color scheme, creating an all-around modern meets classic vibe. Obliging employees are eager to help shoppers build outfits and find clothing to suit each personal preference. Although the moniker is originally derived from the generation gap between young children and adults, branch stores like GapMaternity and BabyGap allow the clothing chain to cater to every age group.
