Distinct from ClothingCombat, where the actual piece of the clothing's fabrics can be used as a weapon, this trope is a Sub-trope to Hidden Weapons, a Supertrope to NothingUpMySleeve, BattleBallgown, SwordCane and CombatHaircomb.

Some people just don't carry weapons into their fights - not because they actually [[BarefistedMonk fight with bare hands]], but because their armoury have actually been [[HiddenWeapon incorporated into their normal clothing]].

There are times when even the most awkward looking clothing will turn out to be a lethal weapon.

The {{princess}} in the [[PimpedOutDress ball gown]]?

She spins and [[BattleBallgown a fringe of razorblades flips out]].

That guy in the [[NiceHat dapper top hat]]?

It's made of magical caterpillar silk and will block a gunshot or cut your head off.

The dancer 'wearing' nothing but fans?

She flips them backward and they will decapitate you.

The guy eating soup in the truck stop?

His bandana is made of armor plates that will stop a bullet and/or break your face.

Do you ever wonder why they call them 'stiletto' heels?

Many heroes will wear armor and weapons that are invisible to casual observation because they look like part of their normal clothing. This has many advantages, not the least of which is being able to take them places where weapons are not normally allowed.

This kind of double purpose clothes are a common hallmark of a {{Badass}}.
This trope is sometimes a {{Subtrope}} of ClothesMakeTheSuperman and ClothingCombat, but not always. It is often a {{Supertrope}} to HatOfPower. WeaponizedHeadgear and SwordCane are Subtropes.
