Updated Feb. 3, 2021: Gap Teen launched a Spring 2021 that you and your teens should shop ASAP.
Original story, published April 22, 2020: If you have a teenager in your house, we don’t have to tell you how stir crazy they are right now. But maybe they’ve also been real troupers about being stuck at home with you. Maybe they deserve a reward, or bribe, like some outfits that inherently remind them that warm weather and time outside (with their friends?!) is soon within reach. Gap Teen — a new capsule collection for girls that Gap launched this week — certainly fits the bill.
It’s amazing to realize that the Gap, the brand of my own teenage years, never had a specific teen line until now. But like teenagers, we want to live in the present, so we’ll appreciate what they’re offering right now. According to a press release, every item in this collection has a sustainable element, so it makes total sense that it’s launching on Earth Day. That means the denim is all made using Gap’s Washwell program that uses 20 percent less water than traditional denim. The T-shirts and tanks are made with organic cotton. The romper is made from a fiber derived from “certified renewable wood sources.” And 5 percent of the denim skirt is recycled cotton.
If eco-friendly fabric isn’t on the top of your criteria for teen clothing, you may instead be interested in the reasonable price point ($17-$65) and the fact that these pieces are really cute.
