Raise your hand if you have nothing to wear.

Us too. During this past year, clothes shopping—like so many things—fell by the wayside. And as we start getting together with friends, re-emerging into the work world, and even just raising the bar on our errand-running attire we find ourselves in desperate need of a fresh infusion of basics. 

Thank goodness for Gap—and especially for its spectacular Friends & Family Sale with 40 percent off basically everything, now through May 18. Whatever you're doing right now, put it on pause, and let's get down to business: t-shirts, undies, jeans at the best prices ever. Gotta catch ’em all before your favorites sell out.

You'll find major markdowns on all of the above plus cute items to make you feel social again—and get you excited for summer (hello swimwear and howdy-doo, denim jackets). Even the iconic high rise cheeky straight jeans that have taken over TikTok are on sale. 

We've rounded up a few of our favorite finds to help you take the best possible advantage of this glorious Gap sale. On your mark, get set, scroll!
