    Xanathar's Guide helps your AC calculations a lot.
    Full Plate +3 (21)
    Shield+3: +5
    Level 1 Fighter: +1
    Level 3 Monk Kensai: +2
    Level 6 Cleric Forge Domain: +1
    Level 3 Bard College of Swords Defensive Flourish: Average +3
    Ring of Protection: +1
    Defender: +3
    Shield Spell: +5
    Ceremony Spell: +2
    Shield of Faith: +2
    Ioun Stone of Protection: +1
    Potion of Speed: +2
    Minor Illusion/Silent Image to create cover: +5

    That's an AC 54 with 3 attunement slots, at level 13. If you take more Bard Levels, it goes up to a max of 61.

    That said, the highest attack bonus you are likely to ever encounter is +19. So anything above an AC 38 (20's always hit) is probably about 0% return on your investment. So, College of Swords 10 (+5 on average), Fighter 1 in Full Plate+2 (21) and Shield+2 (+4), level 3 Kensai (+3), Ring of Protection, and Shield Spell (+5), will get the job done for your entire career.
