The Gap's seasonal sale just started today and prices, pretty much across the board, are slashed up to 40% off original. It's prime time to stock up on Gap basics for the summer—including this pair of Gap Easy Straight jeans, recently called out on Agyness Deyn's new site as her favorites. Plus, Deyn + Co. claim the jeans have a slimming effect: "Historically, every straight-leg jean we’ve ever tried on has made us look, well ? dumpy, but when we tried on the Easy Straights it was like someone had waved a magic wand and gave us slimmer hips, a smaller butt and thinner thighs!"
