Bringing Fashion to Meetings at Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn

Recently, my friend Kristin Burnham,’s social media writer (and voice of @CIOonline) mentioned she was making a trip to the  Bay Area this week for meetings at Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn. Like a lot of my friends, she asked my advice on what to wear.

If I were lucky enough to be in her shoes this week, here is what I would choose for each location.

Facebook: Keep it fun!

Google: Flats are a must for walking the Googleplex campus.

LinkedIn: A site tailored to business networking calls for a more tailored look.

What would you wear to a business meeting at one of these innovative companies?

Fashion Is More Sociable Than You Think!

Edited by Christen Rochon

Being fashionable is not for the timid or weak at heart. Its ever-evolving, rapidly changing and new trends are born every minute! With the information age we currently live in, it’s only natural that social media platforms become launching pads on how we interact with fashion and share our fashionable lives with others. Fresh from last week’s Fashion 140 Conference in NYC – it is apparent that more and more companies and bloggers are using social media to connect with consumers & readers in intimate ways like never before. Here are a few examples on how sharing fashion has become more sociable than you originally thought…

  1. I think the Facebook look is my favorite, but I can be easily swayed with anything leopard print. I’m also loving the top in the LinkedIn ensemble. Interview outfits are almost more stressful to me than the actual interview, I really love your perspective on the different companies.

    on another note, we’re doing a clothing swap sponsored by in your area at the end of June and I would love to see you there!

    1. Thanks for the comment! Spending so much time learning with, working with, and meeting people from these companies (ok, and a visit to the Googleplex) definitely gives me the sense that there’s a unique feel for each. I find that choosing the perfect outfit to wear to a company is equally stressful to studying for the interview (be it for a job or an article), but I’m hoping this post will help people think a little bit outside of the box, at least here in San Francisco.

      *Side note: Amy actually reached out to me about your swap a few weeks ago and asked me to help out at the event, so I will see you there!
