New Year Wardrobe Refresh with Gap Factory

Gap Factory just started their Winter Sale, so this is the perfect opportunity ​to give your wardrobe a refresh for the new year without breaking the bank! They’ve got almost everything marked 40%–70% off through 1/17, plus you’ll save an additional 65% off clearance items with code GFCHILLY.

I styled three casual outfits for your winter style inspiration, and I rounded up my Gap Factory Winter Sale picks for men and women at the end of this post.

Forever Cozy Ribbed Crewneck Sweater in Birch (S) // High Rise Destructed Vintage Slim Jeans with Washwell (29)

This ribbed crewneck sweater is super soft and cozy, with flattering raglan sleeves and banded cuffs, and it runs true to size; I’m in my usual size small.

It comes in a bunch of pretty colors, but I chose the Birch because I love wearing ivory with light wash jeans in the winter. (On the website, the color circle looks beige, but it shows the model wearing the sweater in this ivory color, and that’s the one I ordered.)

I paired it with these destructed slim straight leg jeans, for a casual vibe, but you could also wear it with non-distressed denim or work pants.

These jeans have a really nice fit, and they’re a good choice for those wanting to branch out from skinnies but not ready for a wider silhouette.

They run true to size, and they come in petite, regular, tall, and extra tall lengths! I’m in the 29R, and they fit great, but they do stretch some with wear.

If you want to add a few winter accessories to your look, I love this fair isle poof beanie and ribbed neckwarmer. Unfortunately, this navy fairisle color-way is sold out, but the ivory is really pretty. 

I also grabbed this v-neck sweater in the black, but I went with a size medium in this one. I tried it a few months ago in another color, and it felt a bit snug, so this time I sized up, and I like the fit much better.

Unfortunately, this sweater has sold out in most sizes, but this one is similar.

The side slit and the waffle texture add interest, plus it has a really flattering v-neckline. This sweater is soft and comfortable, and there’s no wool content, for those who are sensitive.

It also looks great paired with these destructed blue jeans. I love black and denim together; it never gets old for me!

For those in milder climates, here’s more of a transitional look with a denim jacket and black flares.

Icon Denim Jacket with Washwell (S) // Waffle Knit T-Shirt (S) // High Rise 70’s Flare Jeans with Washwell (29)

This classic trucker style denim jacket in the medium indigo wash with subtle fading is the perfect closet addition for a casual lifestyle. I love how it pairs with black or white denim.

And these High Rise 70’s Flare Jeans with Washwell are right on trend for this winter 2023 season! I love the inky black wash for dressing up casual looks like this one, or you can pair them with a blouse and leather jacket for a night out.

These jeans come in short, regular, and tall lengths; I’m wearing the size 29R, with the 32″ inseam, which is perfect for me at 5’5″.

They fit snug at first, as black denim tends to run smaller than blue, but they do settle in nicely and feel comfortable after an hour of wear.

Underneath, I’m wearing this waffle-knit t-shirt in purple plum pudding. This is such a great little layering piece for now and later! It will carry you right into spring.

It’s true to size, or you can size up for a looser fit; and it also comes in petite and tall sizes!

We actually had some mild weather last week here in Philly, but unfortunately it was short lived. This outfit was perfect for that, so I’m hoping it works for some of you ladies down south. It will also transition well to spring.

Don’t forget! The Gap Factory Winter Sale is going on right now until 1/17, and you can get 40%–70% off almost everything, plus save an additional 65% off clearance items with code GFCHILLY! (FYI, the sale excludes clearance, faux leather, and gift cards.)

    1. Yes, I’m hearing this too. I’ll be curious to see how it plays out b/c they never bring styles back in quite the same way as we wore them before. I also hear these “rumblings” of styles returning years before they really trickle into the mainstream. I’m still seeing the fashion forward types wearing the baggy, more fluid styles, so we shall see!

  1. I keep Purging my closet, but I am not buying to replace, so pretty soon I’ll have nothing to wear. 🤪I just can’t get excited about the styles right now and I’ve been sending back so much with wrong fit or style. The bag of clothes I purged yesterday was all the items I had, still in good shape, but I was so tired of them, so I never reach for them. Before your purging post, I would have hung onto them longer. Before I move my Spring/Summer clothes into my closet I’ll purge again. You look nice in the post today.

  2. Great post and cute items. I am sad the waffle v-neck sweater is almost sold out–thoughts on the army green? Also what size did you get in the plum top-do you think it might shrink? Thanks so much!!

    1. I tried the green last fall and I liked it! But that was the size S so I sent it back. The plum top – yeah, waffle usually shrinks some. Might be a good idea to size up in that as well.

  3. My daughter works in retail and skinny jeans is all they have been getting in for spring (she bought 2 pairs) and to me they look like skinny’s from past seasons but I’ve never worn skinny jeans, they are also getting in tons of Barbie pink and yellow seems to be hot again, of course this is just one store

  4. Love your eyeglasses and green grass in the background; it’s so nice to see. . We have a lot of snow. I forget about the Gap. Lots of good options here.

  5. The mule shoe you are wearing with the black v neck gap sweater in the post… can you send me the link or tell me what brand?

  6. Love your eyeglasses. Noticed they are by Warby Parker. Can you share the name of the frames and did you order them online? My rx did not change this past month when I went to the eye doctor but would still really love some new frames, they are shaped like I like and love the coloration. Thanks!

      1. Thanks so much, don’t think they will work for me though. My current frames are 52 width which is pushing my limit, usually can’t wear anything larger than 51. Website states 55 width med size frame. Appreciate your help. So pretty on you!

  7. Oy. Shopping to make myself feel better. I ordered the first sweater and the waffle tee. Hope you have a beautiful and restful Sunday!
