Then for my 1 or 2 per year I'd add something different in design (like a glen plaid) or fabric (summer suit, winter suit). Don't forget a few sport coats if you are allowed to wear them on Fridays.

This is excellent advice. Maybe minus the brown suit and replace it with a charcoal pinstripe, or perhaps a tuxedo if you feel like you'll need a formal option (weddings or whatever).

When I first started working I think I only wore navy, really pathetic) but soon you'll learn how to pick colors & styles suitable for work. Basic colors are best (especially in shirts) in this way you can combine them with your wardrobe. As for me, I try topu rchase new shirts around 6 months.

I appreciate the OP's post and a lot of people ask similar questions. I'm afraid if you ask ten people you'll get ten different answers. So I'm going to say whatever you want it's your choice, put it down to trial and error. What I would say is have a look at a few websites about matching clothes i.e. stile (cut) and colour. Make sure your colours work well together and don't mix styles/eras of clothing.

Except for the black! Probably a universal hell no on that. Don't wear black to the office, or you'll look like the kid who bought a suit for his fraternity formal and hasn't grown up yet.
