You don't want your nails long. Don't wear too much jewelry. You don't want to show that much skin so pants are better than a skirt for this reason.
In some industries, being feminine will be an asset, not a detriment. One of the most successful sales people in my industry is a real girly girl in a male dominated industry. Hair, makeup, nails, jewelry, the whole nine yards.

I only have about 6 pant suits, and about 8 skirt / pant suit sets.

I wish I was a beautiful woman working in a skirt suit everyday! And I prefer skirts about 2" above the knee in length!

Best experience for me was going to a Chicago Job Fair in a skirt suit! I made a past thread about it! Was nice putting on my lipstick in the women's bathroom when a whole line of women were doing the same!

My skirt suit collection is probably worth $20,000! Especially when I have a few St John's! 2 most expensive skirt suits - St John's at $918 and $760 each.
If I was in the ladies room and a guy in drag was at the mirror doing his make up, I'd call the cops. And yes, in most states you'd be arrested.

And frankly no one cares about how many skirt suits you've wasted your money on or how much they cost.

You need to a have a body to live up to the clothes you are wearing as well, short skirt and a ugly fat girl would be a meltdown.

Not everything is in the clothes as some beleive.

Ugly fat men in suits are still ugly fat men in suits.

I've always preferred pant suits. A. I look great in them and B. I have less to worry about compared to skirts. I have a professional job and I don't see much of an issue with competing against men (so to speak) as a previous person mentioned. I choose not to wear skirts because I hate pantyhose and I don't want to think about runs in my stocking. Plus, I see clients throughout the day in my office so there's lots of sitting (and leg crossing) going on so pants are more comfortable for me. I do wear skirts on occasion, but its usually pant suits for meetings and interviews. Wearing what you feel most comfortable in is the best way to ensure you'll do well in an interview. Try your outfit on a few times- walk, reach, sit and stand in it before wearing it on interview day.

I think either is acceptable. I would choose the one that you feel most comfortable and confident in.

For most industries, pant suit. Showing skin is distracting, even if you don't intend it to be.

Oh please. 99% of interviews are done with everyone's legs under a table.
