Here are some items that have been winners on clients and friends. Some casual, some dressy, some extended sizes, some trends, some classics, and lots of interesting colours and patterns. You’ll probably get a good discount on the items from the Gap.
1. Gap Rib Mix Woven Joggers
These caught my eye because they’re WOVEN, and not knitted like most jogger styles. They’re like wearing draped cotton pants in a jogger style. Super soft, comfortable, and excellent structure on the cuffs, The fabric is lovely, and the fit works on most body types. Dress them up or down. Excellent on a hot Summer’s day. Runs TTS and is available in petite, regular and long up to size XXL.
2. Gap High-Rise Wide-Leg Crop Chinos
These are a great way to try trendy bottoms on a budget. They’re wide and dramatic, so you have to be okay with that. They’re also quite long, but easy to hem. They run TTS but need waist alteration if you run narrow on the waist. Soft and lovely fabric. Comfortable. Can fit a curvier and straighter body type. Room on the thighs and the pocket linings don’t grin through.
3. Ann Taylor Striped Boat Neck Luxe Tee
4. Scotch & Soda Fun
Dutch brand Scotch & Soda catch my interest because their items are interesting and unique, but without the designer price. Lots of pattern, pattern mixing, eccentric colour combinations, clever design details, and a knack for making dressy items look relaxed. GORGEOUS fabrics, luxurious textures against the body, good fits, and quality items. My closet welcomes more Scotch & Soda.
I’ve seen the items in the collection in person and fitted them on people. Unfortunately the stock photos do not do them justice because of how the items are styled. That said, feel free to ask questions about the items in the comments section. The silky bombers are fully reversible. The pants will fit a curvier and straighter body type. The wide leg gingham crops are the bomb, and fit beautifully. The knitted polo followed me home, and the blush workwear cotton jacket will probably earn a place in my closet too.
5. DL1961 Coco Curvy Straight Jeans
They work well cuffed or rolled at the hem. Mid-rise and very streamlining. I have many happy clients in this style, and my tall clients in particular are ecstatic about the length.
