The Trends You Might Want to Avoid Going into a Job Interview

First of all let me begin by saying that I do not believe in the 'should or shouldn't' when it comes to fashion. You should be able to express yourself and choose to wear whatever you want and what makes you feel the most like yourself and confident.

The type of job you're applying for is a main factor here. The points below are not for when you're going to a hip/casual office or going for an interview in fashion. It's targeted more towards corporate jobs, very strict and formal offices that require a lot of rules and boundaries and might not understand or be impressed by artistic expression.

There have been a lot of outstanding trends this year, however, being that they were mostly inspired by the '80s, it's safe to say that they might not be very job interview friendly. In an interview like this, it is preferable to stay away from something too distracting, that might have the interviewers attention diverted from what you're saying because... well, those earrings are awesome and to die for.

Take a look below at the 6 trends we think you might want to avoid for a job interview...

Neon is everywhere this year. Bright, poppy and... distracting, which can be great when you want to rock your favorite new sweater, but in an interview it could be too distracting and irritating to the eyes. Instagram: @tylerjoe
Oversized Blazers

This could be one of my favorite trends by far and yes it is a blazer, but for a certain kind of office it be misunderstood as... just not the right fit. Instagram: @oraclefox
Pop of Eyeshadow

We know you haven't stopped rocking it this year, but as you speak, the interviewer will be looking at your eyes and might not be focusing on what you're saying as much as you would like. Instagram: @marwaatik

Polka dots, cheetah prints, and mixing patterns are really loved these days but how about you save them for the dinner celebration when you get the job. Instagram: @mikeeip
Metallic

Metallic is so chic and can be worn in so many different ways but unfortunately they are still perceived by some as party outfits not for everyday. Instagram: @pavelnupaul
Statement Earrings

Again... so chic but can be distracting, especially if they dangle and make clinking sounds! Instagram: @threadsstyling
