Thanks for the input everyone! ruskiegirl, who perceives them as gunners, fellow students, instructors, or both? Just curious, because one of my mentors is one of the former deans at the law school I'm attending, who was promoted to the President's office. She felt jeans, tees and sweats while in school was fine; however, another instructor, who hires from the law school, thinks it is a disgrace to dress that way while going to law school. Just to put things in perspective, the former dean is a woman, the instructor is a man. Any more thoughts anyone?
I also think one basic black suit is enough. You can pair it with different blouses/jewelry for different looks.
