AD| A white summer with GAP

The sun is gleaming with clear blue skies, the birds are out singing, the charming and exquisite flowers are blooming, the smell of freshly cut grass, the delightful sight of the ice cream van with a queue longer than a ribbon, the buzzing sound of bees that whizz right past your ears you start to smack yourself silly (guilty!) and most importantly the need for a coat is no longer of existence. Yes that's right! That my friend is the pure bliss of SUMMER.

Though, the ultimate question when summer arrives for us is 'what do I wear?!'
The steady transition from winter wardrobe to summer slowly creeps upon us and the rush for those staple and trendy pieces in our wardrobe begins.
Not to fret! I recently visited the GAP store in Manchester Arndale to peep their new 'Summer White' collection. It's an understatement that white is irrefutably the colour of summer, when better to wear white right? Where the forecast is in your favour and the possibility of a rain down to ruin your clean precious whites is little to none.

A little assistance from GAP I was able to pick a few pieces to really invent my own white summer collection. A wide variety to select from such as; denims, jackets, linen, shirts, tops, dungarees, dresses and much more. Undeniably difficult to pick a few favourites as I drifted to almost everything and insisted on taking them all home. However, after trying on the pieces I left with the items I knew I would wear repeatedly throughout summer and that would be suitable for when planning a trip abroad.


I automatically gravitated towards the dungarees as I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair in white. Straight leg and the ideal length was the style I was after and fit like a dream. Dungarees always speaks summer to me but more so in the wash colour white. Admirably versatile with endless possibilities to style them, reflecting a very edgy and urban energy. Keeping to the edgy and chic vibes I paired the dungarees with a plain cotton white long sleeve top, trainers, straw bag and a few accessories (layered necklaces). Remaining modest but requires little to no effort and certainly will keep you cool in those warmer temperatures.


What better than double denim when dressing for summer, even more so in the colour white! GAP offered such a diverse range of white denim jeans, however I favoured these wide leg jeans slightly more. Wide leg jeans increasingly on the rise in the trend radar, definitely something to venture into for summer, especially for modest dressers.
Keeping to the double denim fit, I opted for a cropped denim jacket which complimented one another profoundly. My utmost favourite concept behind double denim is the innumerable possibilities of styling both pieces together and separately.
I found that both the jeans and jacket to be super flexible separately as well as paired together. Assuredly a great start off point for a reinvented summer wardrobe and GAP being the place for it!

Items mentioned are available in store and online GAP.
