If you’ve listened to more than one episode of this podcast, you’ll know that I talk a lot about being intentional about the clothes you buy and wear. In particular, I discuss getting dressed with intention and being purposeful about honing and developing your style.

However, there’s another aspect of style where intentionality is essential—and it’s one that often gets overlooked—and that’s wardrobe building. Have you ever considered the process you use to get clothes into your closet? 

In my experience, most people naturally adopt one of two wardrobe-building strategies: hunting (shopping with a plan) or gathering (browsing for pieces that catch their eye). 

With that in mind, in this episode, I present the pros and cons of each approach, detailing scenarios where hunting and gathering are recommended.

Is one approach truly better than the other? Listen to the episode to find out!

In this episode:

  • Why your closet should be more like a dinner party than a plane ride
  • What hunting and gathering mean when it comes to your wardrobe
  • Times you should be hunting and times when gathering is a better strategy
  • My personal approach to hunting and gathering and how you can start today
