Gap styles are our vices!
Happy Birthday to the Gap! 43 years ago today, on August 21st, the first Gap store was opened in San Francisco! Shoppers were only too happy to fall into the Gap (remember that catchy jingle?). The store rapidly expanded from Levi’s (and other jeans…1969 price only $7… oh the glory days!) to logo styles (were they the first to think of such a great way to advertise?) to just about anything you’d like to wear (for everyone going anywhere)!
Let’s celebrate the Gap birthday with their vintage ads, which have always had flare (& not just the jeans)! In the 80’s they ‘wowed’ us with celebs both old and new, catchy dance numbers, bright colors and brighter stars. Cindy Crawford was just 16 in this ad. Hepburn was considerably older when she became a Gap girl. Simple styles never seemed so hot!
The Gap has evolved with the times. In the early days it was THE place for all things denim with walls and walls of jeans. GAP logowear soon became the must-have in every classroom. Prepster styles – khakis in particular – have been an old Gap standby and were soon available for the whole family.
Today, however, Gap Inc. is so much more than jeans and prep gear. Gap Inc. has expanded to more than 3,200 stores under the umbrella of not only Gap but also Old Navy, Athleta, Banana Republic, & Piperlime.
Gap Inc. Styles Featured: Gap 1969 Dolman-Sleeve Shirt Dress, Old Navy Boat-Neck Sweater & Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans, Athelta Long Sleeve Runaway Top, Banana Republic Tailored Shirt & Abstract Floral Pencil Skirt, Piperlime Animal Sweater Dress
