Suits for Women

Hi everyone, 

I was hoping to revive the suits for women thread from the old forum as I could use the wisdom!

I will be starting law school in the fall, and with malls opening, I'm shopping around for my first formal suit for this upcoming year. As this would be the foundation to my professional wardrobe, I'm looking to start off with a basic black pant suit comprised of versatile pieces that can mix and match but will look conservative for interviews when worn as a set. However, I am having trouble with the pants. A lot of styles right now are cropped, a style I really like, but I'm not sure if these would be appropriate. Are cropped pants considered formal/conservative enough for law interviews? Do cropped pants look weird in the winter?

Thanks for any advice! 

Edit: It's cool if others post questions about women's fashion in this thread too, like the last one.

Cropped pants are totally appropriate - they are my go to!  I think they look great year round. In the winter they look great with an ankle boot, although I wouldn't recommend wearing boots to an interview.  But, you can get long term wear out of them. 

I like Massimo Dutti for women's suits.  More expensive than something like Zara, but better materials and construction and still within reach.

Oh that is great to hear! And thanks so much for the recommendation. That is exactly the style and price range I was looking into.
