It depends on your orientation...
If you are after the Metro style the ones proposed by Ryan are best
If you are after a more colorful and volume-like Icons then the Oxygen pack is what i use : https://github.com/KDE/oxygen-icons
Take a quick look on how they seem on my article:https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/33716/Defeating-the-device-independent-bitmap-dib-format.html

We've used the free Syncfusion Metro Studio. State of the art.


You can see some examples on the screenshots in my article - as well as a modernised messagebox and inputbox:
