What image does your PhD supervisor expect you to present at conference?
If that's something you don't know then I would play safe.
As a man, I opted for shirt and tie (as much as I hate ties) and feel I made the right play if only to get the PhD position over the line. After that, I was able to work out what was the right clothing for each situation.
Mostly, no one cares and all is very casual but conferences and presentations can be more formal.
I suggest trouser suit unless you know what your potential supervisor expects, then once you have your foot in the door you case assess potentially formal situation on a case by case basis.
