    We know we can always walk into a Gap and find a great pair of perfectly relaxed, but not-too-slouchy, jeans. We can buy a classic denim jacket that wears so well it'll still be in our outfit rotation years down the line. (This writer has had hers since high school.)

Think: pullovers, parkas, and — not exactly new, albeit rad — pencil skirts that we're happy to see make a return from the early aughts. Ultimately, the most predictable part of this Gap experience will likely be the traffic on the way to the mall when the collection officially becomes available on May 1.
