I'm in a non-shopping phase right now, having pulled together an interview/first week of work capsule that's mostly grey and blue. I think I'll enjoy wearing the things I've chosen, but I understand that work clothes can get boring sometimes.

Eventually I will expand what I wear to work. I want to think now about how to do it. I don't want to end up despising/despairing over my boring neutral wardrobe. I love rich colors, texture, maximal detail, and a little dark glamour. This scarf is very appealing to me.

So I'm asking for examples of work capsules/wardrobes that do not consist of mix and match neutral pieces that end up feeling very uninspired. It must be possible to find a few lovely pieces that go with something like this scarf and work out a very happifying professional wardrobe. Or if not this, than a fantastic RED dress or something leopard print or other beautiful, somewhat maximal style. Not just a series of solids that work with the one "fancy" piece, but I can't really give examples of what I'm looking for, because that's what I'm asking you for. Please post links of such collections you have seen and admire, for my future dreaming. I don't need items that go with this scarf, because I'm not buying now. It's more the example, the how-to that I'm looking for, so I'll be ready to build my collection later. Thanks!
