LittleButtons :  I get classic ones.  For example I have one that is a purple pendant with beads on either side.  I have another that I recently got that is a “bib” of metal flowers and is adorable and classic.  I have another multi-strand pearl necklace.  It’s really about the confidence you have when wearing it!  Find a colorful but classic necklace you love in the store and you might surprise yourself!

I know this is an older thread, but I like it so I’m going to contribute! 

My work is business casual, but we are still pretty informal, so my general work wardrobe is pretty varied. I like a lot of variety!

3 pairs of work pants (two black, one skinny khaki)

Several skirts of varying colors/lengths. I just tried to count them up and lost track. I love skirts! In the colder months I wear my knee length skirts with leggings and tights, and in warmer months I wear a lot of longer skirts too. 

6-7 dresses

25-30 tops/blouses

6 sweaters

6 cardigans. I work at a public library/am studying to get my masters in library science so it’s a cliche, but I want even more cardigans!

2 pairs of ankle books, 2 pairs of ballet flats, and 1 pair of work appropriate sneakers

I have a lot of clothes, but I buy nearly everything on clearance or from thrift stores, and the vast majority of it is from less expensive retailers like H&M, Forever 21, Target, and Walmart, even.
