Spring Wardrobe Basics That Won’t Break The Bank

We’ve been talking about the top fashion trends for spring, and Gap Factory is having a big President’s Day Sale this weekend, making this a great time to pick up some new spring wardrobe pieces at great prices!

Gap Factory Shaker Stitch Sweater (S) // Gap Factory Mid Rise Kick Fit Jeans (29)

Light wash jeans and kick fit styles are some of my favorite denim trends this season, and these Mid Rise Kick Fit Jeans are the best of both worlds. They’re soft and comfortable, and they have a versatile mid-rise and ankle-length inseam, perfect for showing off your favorite shoes.

The raw hem is right on trend, and also makes it easy to adjust the length. Plus, they’re available in short and tall lengths as well as a wide range of regular sizes from 24–35.

This 100% cotton Shaker Stitch Sweater tops them off perfectly, and it’s the perfect weight for spring. It comes in a navy stripe and a brown stripe, but I’m a huge fan of this multi-stripe on ivory for transition season.

If you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe with a full-length style, these Mid Rise Boot Cut Jeans are a great option. They have a 32.5″ inseam, which looks great with my favorite booties. If you’re taller or shorter, they carry short and long sizes in these as well.

The light indigo wash has subtle fading for a lived-in vibe, and they’re super soft and stretchy for ultimate comfort. I’m wearing my usual 29, but they do stretch some with wear, so you may want to size down if in between.

You can’t go wrong with navy and white for spring, and I’m a huge fan of the shorter v-neck cardigans that are trending right now. This Shaker Stitch V-Neck Cardigan incorporates both of these features, as well as one of the biggest trends this season – stripes! It’s also 100% cotton and runs true to size.

While you’re refreshing your spring wardrobe, may I suggest this cotton trench? It’s such a great classic in a versatile khaki color that you can wear for years.

This trench is a double-breasted style with a tie waist, and it runs true to size, or size up if in between. I’m in the small, and I like the overall fit through the arms and shoulders, but I couldn’t didn’t quite button the top button over my chest.

Wear it to elevate a casual outfit, or top off all your spring workwear looks.

Underneath, I’m wearing the Poplin Big Shirt in Baltic Blue. I like the mixed stripe design, and once again, button-up shirts are trending for spring, so this is a great way to update your look.

Okay, one last piece I want to tell you about! The Quilted Jacket in Desert Cactus Green is the perfect casual jacket for all of your denim and athleisure looks this spring.

I love the gathered detail on the sleeves. It’s cute, but practical too. You can cinch them to keep out the wind and cold, but it also adds a nice detail to the overall look of the jacket.

The slit sides and curved hemline is flattering and adds another element of interest, and it has slash pockets that are well-placed for optimal comfort and accessibility.

The collarless design is a nice modern update, and it’s 100% cotton and machine washable. This jacket runs true to size with a generous fit so you can comfortably layer it over a bulky sweater if you want to.

And don’t forget, the Gap Factory President’s Day Sale runs through 2/21/2023:

  • 40-60% Off + Extra 10% Off (or Extra 15% Off $75+) with Code GFSTOCKUP! Restrictions Apply.
  • 50% Off Jeans + Extra 50% Off Clearance with Code GFSTACK! Restrictions Apply.

  1. I’m loving the pieces you are sharing from Gap Factory! Time for me to visit ours and see what they have! Unfortunately for us there’s no on line shopping so a trio in must be made.
    I really need to remember to wear my trench coat more this year it really is a nice polished piece.

  2. Loving these spring posts, the navy stripe cardigan is so cute and such a good fit on you, also the trench is a good fit. Wish we had a Gap close to us, the jeans look really nice too!

  3. Glad you got home safely and had a good trip. I’ve had a trench coat for years and just don’t grab it out as much as I should. They never go out of style and make a casual jean outfit go up a notch for sure. You look nice in all your photos. The jeans are cute.

  4. Thank you for posting about the GAP factory striped sweater. The first time you posted it, I headed out to see if the had it in store which they did. I LOVE it. Perfect early spring sweater.

  5. I’m so glad you styled the kick fit jeans today. I had put them in my cart yesterday, but just couldn’t decide if I really liked them. Seeing them on you sealed the deal! Thanks for the post for GF Outlet, loved all the looks!

  6. These are great looks! Can you tell me the rise on the mid-rise boot cut jeans when you get a chance? I would like to try them if they aren’t too low for me. You look great in them!

  7. Cute jeans and great price. I wish they weren’t mid rise but high rise. Gap has a lot of mid rise jeans for those who need that rise. I get muffin top with mid rise or they slip down if too lose. Thanks for letting us know about this sale. They have good prices. The ecru jeans sold out in all see sizes.
