Where should I buy a suit? I'm a 23-year-old woman interviewing for my first real jobs, which will be entry level in marketing or printing.

I'll be interviewing in a college town in the south, so I probably won't be dealing with fancy urban people with fashion sense. That being said, I still want to look as nice as possible and I can spend up to $400. I don't know the level of formality at the offices but I would guess business casual. I looked at suits at Banana Republic and Ann Taylor Loft and I like them, but I have very little frame of reference and I don't know whether the quality is good enough. Also, I have a very young face - should I be dressing to look older? Do I have to buy black? Can I wear grey or pinstripe or herringbone? If it helps, I'm 5"6 and 140 lbs and I have a big ass and hips.
