What to wear to a job interview VS a career fair?

So I have a nice white button up shirt, business skirt and pants, and a suit jacket. I'm applying for a software development job and I'm very short and can look young so I'm trying to look adult, yet professional. I'm also attractive so I'm trying not to look too sexy. For the career fair I'm thinking of wearing just my nice shirt and a skirt with low heels. My reasoning being it's approachable and attractive without going overboard since the career fair hosts are mostly younger male recent grads. I want to be remembered but not intimidating. For my interviews I was thinking pants, suit jacket (power suit). My reasoning being it'll be older execs and HR people (mostly women) so less sexy with the pants but more powerful with the suit jacket. What do you think?!

Sounds about right. More casual for the job-fair, more conservative for the interview.

When you attend a job fair, think of it as participating in many mini interviews. Dress approiately (As if you're going to an interview) and bring plenty of resumes with you

I was wondering what career pathways are possible for me if I take a community development course at uni after I finish school? Is it worth the 3 years of study or is it a dead end degree?
