The more important question is, is it a T-5?  Then you'll almost certainly need french-cuffs.

lol, very nice.

Personally I kinda like French Cuffs.  Cuff links are fun.

Cuff links?  Pssssh, silk knots are the only way to go, of course.

That's my attempt of the day at a joke.  In all seriousness though, any kind of cuff links can come off somewhat a-hole-ish, but that is the problem with any accessory.  Being conservative with them, however, does not mean boring.  You can have a strong sense of style without being over-the-top.

Conservative = solid gold Dunhill monogrammed cufflinks, I presume.

So should a female go for pants or a skirt with the suit? And why not black?

I can't speak to the skirt vs pants thing, but black is considered tacky.  Conservative (i.e., professional-looking) business attire is either navy or gray.

Black is not tacky per se, but is considered by many to be too formal for business-wear.
