Connecting Pico to USB Power

Hi, new here, I’ve been experimenting with the V3 Standard for awhile and like how I can plug and play into various usb power banks via micro USB port, and different led strips via soldered JST connector. I’m trying to implement similar for the Pico for some wearables.

What’s the optimal way to set up the pico for plug and play power? USB type-A directly to 2 wire and attached to VIN/GND with something like this? Or should I add a female micro USB to mimic the Standard? Curious what others have done for wearables to optimize weight/clutter and for simplicity.
