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.
