There's really no need introducing GAP—the brand's irreverence in producing the best in fashionable basics always drives us back to their shelves, even with tons of trend-crazed competition. GAP pieces always manage to glue our entire outfit together, or serve as a no-fail starting point in which we build our look from. GAP—especially for people who've grown up with the brand even before it opened its Manila boutiques—might as well be the perfect representation of fashion's DNA, a mainstay in any true blue fashionista's closet.
This May, GAP unveils its Summer '17 collection. See the five reasons why we're itching to rush to the store:
1. Its crewneck T-shirts are something we can wear on their own.
GAP's summer collection tees are plusher—and more stylish—than your regular shirt, with frayed sleeve edges that make it look more than the usual. We love a boxy guy shirt to pair with our skinny ripped cut-offs.
2. We found the perfect button down to buy for the beau.
It's not deep blue, it's not harsh gray, and it's the light kind of chanbray—we're looking at this piece to save our BF's from any last-minute fashion emergency.
3. Our search for the perfect boyfriend shirt ends here.
It's loose, it's breezy, it's the epitome of effortless tomboy chic. We recommend wearing with shorts or at home, all by itself and with sexy pair of undies.
4. Its take on stripes goes beyond the basic.
When nautical's just too played out, wearing stripes might be a drab prospect, but we love GAP does theirs in a slightly vintage wash.
5. There's nothing plain about their plain jeans.
Perfectly rudimentary, unmodified jeans rarely exist nowadays, so it's great to find a cool classic we know will last for the years to come.
