There's no doubt that the clothes and accessories we wear can imbue us with a certain sense of confidence. On a low-energy day, slipping on a well-cut blazer or sleek mules can be all it takes to feel prepared and when you're short on time, having a go-to "uniform" can be a saviour. 

"How I dress is a reflection of what I need to conquer that day," says Michelle Kennedy, founder of Peanut, an app that connects mums with similar interests. "On days that I have difficult meetings... what I wear is my armour, and does a huge amount to abate my nerves." 

Kennedy isn't the only one who turns to a few carefully chosen power items in her wardrobe for a jolt of confidence. Here, we asked women with both business and style acumen in tech, publishing, design, and art, to open their wardrobe. From a wrinkle-proof dress that can survive a redeye to Gucci sliders that are ideal for running to meetings, these are the items cool CEOs, founders, and execs wear on repeat. 

What's your go-to workwear item?
