With regards to professional dress for interviews, are there any “don’ts?” For example, suits with patterns, tie clips, watches etc.?

Don’t wear tie clips. Don’t wear a rolex or something similarly flashy if you’re entry level. Also, please please please remember to remove the label off the cuff of your suit. Just play it as conservative as possible when interviewing. You don’t want your interviewers to remember you because of what you wore. You can do what you want (to an extent) once you actually start working.
