Interview wardrobe - Advice?

Alex could help here, I'm sure, being the fashion queen! Style tips welcome from all though. Feel free!
I once wore all pink head to toe (knitted skirt and jacket suit and pink tights) to a job interview for fun (a  bit of drag almost!) - but I was offered the job & lasted two years!
This Friday for the Editor's interview I'm planning to wear:
  • Cue shirt with long sleeves and collar (cream with fine red & grey pinstripes)
  • Either VOK grey straight skirt to knee, OR MEL stretch grey pants with ankle stitching
  • Anna Rita N (almost matching) lined grey short fitted jacket, with running stitch (grey) on collar and stylishly frayed panels in upside down Vs below front darts
  • Charcoal tights
  • Red high-heeled patent shoes, cut away at the instep
Should I go super safe and wear the skirt or be more comfortable and fractionally more trendy in the pants?
Do you think the interviewers will mistake the stylish fraying for a serious opshop look (the jacket was purchased in Toorak but is a little last season)? Thanks for your hints.
