It's no secret that Gap is one of our favorite stores. This timeless American brand is our go-to for essential wardrobe pieces like T-Shirts, jeans, and sweatpants, with silhouettes that transcend every single season. Because it's a one stop shop for wardrobe basics, we find ourselves refreshing the new arrivals page pretty damn often. And right now, the spring launches have us itching for the summer ahead. Think versatile linen, breezy crinkle gauze fabrics, texturally pleasing crochet styles, crisp cotton designs, and more. You'll find matching sets galore, double take-worthy dresses, unique takes on denim, and an array of other spring and summer must haves.

While Gap is renowned for its classic silhouettes, it also offers trend-forward styles. Case in point: the brand recently teamed up with Dôen for a collaboration that infuses Gap's aesthetic with Dôen's feminine touch. We've included a standout piece from this line in our roundup of the 15 best new pieces from Gap, along with other styles that might surprise you. From a chic checkered bucket bag to a slitted denim maxi skirt you can wear straight through summer into fall, there's something for everyone. Keep scrolling to shop our favorite new pieces from Gap.
