The best outfits from Apple WWDC 2022, ranked

This was my first year covering Apple’s WWDC, and as I typed furiously to update our readers about the latest iPad OS updates it struck me that no one was talking about what really matters: Apple Daddy Craig Federighi the fashion. The style choices were classic Apple (streamlined and simple) with the exception of a single track suit which was so delightful that I now desperately wish to call it my own (Apple, I can and will send you my address). From hoodies to heels, here are some of the best outfits we saw on Apple employees at WWDC 2022.

Namaste!

12. Kevin Lynch – VP, Technology

Kevin, or “zen dude” as I called him in my hurriedly-scribbled notes, is serving us upscale white-male-in-tech chic. A hoodie, tee, jeans, and sneakers, all completely inappropriate for the yoga studio he finds himself in. Zuck would be proud.

11. Johny Srouji – SVP, Hardware Technologies

We are ranking this for the color story alone. Are the styling and shapes exciting? No. Is that cobalt, almost peacock, blue an incredible choice with Srouji’s shock of white hair? Yes. Plus, it matches his… secret lab? Underground bunker? A beautiful composition.

10. Kyle Ardill – Apple Fitness Plus Trainer

We catch a glimpse of Ardill mid jump squat when SVP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi bursts in on one of his sessions. “Sorry Kyle, wrong door!” Federighi apologizes as he leaves. Sure it was, Craig.

9. Darin Adler – VP, Internet Technologies

You can really go wrong with a Hawaiian shirt, but Adler nails it. His button up features fish and coral reef flora in a charming muted color palette. It’s fun, but not distracting.

8. Emily Schubert – Senior Manager, Car Experience Engineering

We have to hand it to the women of WWDC who do everything the men do, but in heels. Here, Schubert is rocking what looks like a black rubber wedge with a white sole. Her army green bomber is a nice choice for a modern neutral.

7. Craig Bolton – Senior Manager, Fitness Technology

Dressed in head-to-toe Nike, Bolton feels like the stylish track coach I never had. In some lights, his suit appears green but actually looks to be a classic Apple space grey.

6. Corey Wang – Producer, Human Interface

Wang elevates her straightforward black blazer with a pop of yellow. I’ve been resisting comparing clothing color choices to Apple products, but this particular shade does remind me of the 2018 iPhone XR’s yellow.

Rubie Edmondson stands in a white tee, pleather black pants, a red Apple watch, and black and white high-top Air Jordans.

5. Rubie Edmondson – Sports Editorial Manager, Apple News

Rubie brought it today with her Air Jordans, an appropriate choice for her segment in which she introduced everything new in Sports at Apple. Upon closer inspection, her pants are made of either black leather or black pleather, a bold choice for a sunny day on a baking basketball court.

Katie Skinner stands in a belted denim jumpsuit and black strappy heels.

4. Katie Skinner – Senior Manager, User Privacy Software

Yes, Katie! A denim jumpsuit and a strappy heel is exactly the kind of energy we need at WWDC. And so are the safety features Skinner introduced, which were designed to give people in abusive relationships more control over how and where their personal information is shared.

Tim Cook is wearing a black shirt, gray bomber, and grey glasses.

3. Tim Cook – CEO

Go off, monochrome king! I really wish he would have gone with a lighter, grey-toned shirt as a base, but I love the matching glasses and bomber. I honestly doubt Cook dressed himself today (the man makes $92 million a year, he should be delegating his shopping) so I’d really like to extend my congratulations to his stylist.

2. The Craig Federighi Off Duty Look

Macbook daddy Craig brought his best Clark Kent cosplay today with this outfit. He started the day walking around demo-ing the latest tech like a normie, but by the end was running in slo-mo to a pop rock song called “Thoughts About You” on his way to updating us about the changes coming to iPad OS 16.

1. The Craig Federighi Tracksuit

I audibly gasped when Federighi appeared on screen in this stunning set, looking like the tribute-to-beat in the Apple Hunger Games. The white is a clean choice, and the stripes are giving us Fruit Stripe Gum and 70’s camper van realness. Federighi gets docked half a point for his sneakers which, while sharp, are more of a cream than the blinding white this outfit calls for, but he earns it back for his basketball prop work.
