“During GSS, I stock up on a lot of basics, such as the round-neck T-shirts that I wear often, underwear, denim jeans and good pants. For other working adults, white shirts are a good thing to stock up on. Classics look best when they’re brand new, after a while they may lose their sheen. Stock up on basics for special occasions to look effortlessly chic. Also, look for statement pieces that you don’t want to pay full price for.
I love the GSS because it never fails to surprise me.”
