How to Dress at a Startup
When it comes to the tech world, men and women have to think about their work wardrobe in entirely different ways.
For women in the tech world, how you dress is crucial.
>> What I wear?
No one's ever commented or asked or looked, even looked at it.
So. >> I can't wear anything that will distract people from why I'm here.
>> Hm, I don't really think about it.
>> I mean, I have to be taken seriously.
So I have to choose each outfit carefully.
>> I usually wear a hoodie, standard, whatever.
>> In a meeting my main goal is to get the men to maintain eye
contact with me.
>> I usually wear like a comic book character shirt.
>> Feminine, but not sexy.
>> Then I always wear the same pair of cargos.
I don't know, I guess I'm kind of norm-core that way.
>> Structured, but not form-fitting.
>> I just, I don't even have to wear a backpack.
I can just keep all my stuff in here.
Laptop, notebook, iPad, all that stuff.
>> Classy, but not too flashy or fancy.
>> Then you know, got my flip flops, my flippies.
Just kind of let it all hang out.
I don't have anything to hide.
So, it's the office.
>> The more Amish I look, the better.
>> I don't think people mind seeing my toes.
Everyone's got them.
I clip them like once a month, so.
>> My hair has to be pulled back in a bun or worn very conservatively.
>> Yeah, I don't believe all that stuff Big Shampoo wants you to believe.
It's all, it's all garbage.
>> I wear a wedding ring.
I'm not married, but it's easier if the VC jerks think I'm married.
>> I mean, I do own a ring.
Superman's kryptonite ring.
Which is the kryptonite ring that Superman gave to Batman.
I mean, originally it was Lex Luthor's ring but then Superman got it,
gave it to Batman.
I mean, and this was, like, back when there was no kryptonite.
And of course, now after Supergirl landed on Earth and there's a surplus of
kryptonite, it's like it's not as significant but back then, this was like.
