* Averted in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''. When Captain Archer wakes up in an AlternateHistory version of UsefulNotes/{{WW2}}, it's assumed from his jumpsuit with 'Enterprise' symbol that he's a survivor from the aircraft carrier of the same name, which has been sunk in this timeline. His clothes do look like a boilersuit that might be worn in a ship's engine room.

* [[FanFic/TheLoneTraveler The Lone Traveler's]] default outfit is a simple jeans/t-shirt/black leather jacket combination. It doesn't always fit in, and he knows it. Luckily, he can just use magic to transfigure them into something more appropriate.

* Played with in ''LostInAusten'', where Mr Darcy and Miss Price are able to wander around modern London in outfits from the early 19th century without anyone commenting. Whether this is because nobody thinks it's that weird in a city that diverse, or the British are just too polite and reserved to comment, is uncertain. On the other hand, when Miss Price first arrives in ''Pride and Prejudice'' land she has to excuse her leather jacket and jeans as otter-hunting clothes. The degree of cleavage she's showing causes Mr Bingley some discomfort, as well. Cleavage-exposing dresses were considered acceptable as evening wear but not during the day.

* In ''Series/TheOrville'' episode "[[Recap/TheOrvilleS1E07MajorityRule Majority Rule]]", four members of the crew go down to a planet very similar to early-21st century Earth (specifically, the US). [=LaMarr=] complains heavily about having to wear skinny jeans and doesn't want to give himself an impromptu vasectomy. Alara, being a RubberForeheadAlien, has to wear a hat to hide her ears and forehead. When Ed first sees them in those outfits, he comments that they look like unemployed backup dancers. Later on, Alara's choice of hat ends up backfiring, as it turns out to be specific to a particular culture on the planet. A member of that culture takes offense to Alara wearing his people's hat without being one of them. Claire rushes her to the bathroom and rips a strip off her blouse in order to fashion her a replacement headcover.

* Averted on ''Series/{{Timeless}}'', as they would usually change into clothes appropriate for the time period they were going to before leaving.

* Averted on ''Series/{{Timeless}}'', as they would usually change into clothes appropriate for the time period they were going to before leaving. Lucy even comments in the pilot that the bra they have given her has an underwire, which wasn't historically accurate[[note]]Actually, underwire bras were first developed in the 30s (they were going to 1937), but did not gain widespread popularity until TheFifties.[[/note]], causing Wyatt to exasperatedly point out that no one was going to see her bra anyway. [[spoiler:It ends up being useful to escape the jail cell they get thrown into, as Wyatt is able to adapt the underwire as a lockpick]].

* Kagome from ''Manga/InuYasha'' wears an extremely short skirt in feudal Japan. Near the beginning, a man comments that "Her kimono is shorter than mine" while fingering her skirt. After this, though, aside from a rare passing comment about "strange clothes", no one she meets is ever really surprised by her modern clothes and hair, though she is accused of being a demon a few times. May be part of an ingrained cultural habit where after elementary school Japanese schoolchildren are conditioned to wear their school uniforms on school days, period, no exceptions--even after school. Sundays and holidays are no-uniform days, but most junior high and high school students are expected to remain in uniform until they go home for the night. WordOfGod states she keeps wearing it to retain a sense of connection to her own time. And she does [[spoiler: switch to wearing a kimono after deciding to marry Inuyasha.]]
** Word of god has also stated she just likes the style, and that there's a practical side too: It's apparently easy to keep clean.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''. While soldiers in 600 AD do comment on Crono's clothing, Lucca somehow manages to get past them later on, and no one notices the other party members wandering around in strange clothes (not even the cavewoman running around in a fur bikini). Even Crono's mom, who can talk to other party members says "young ladies shouldn't dress like that".
** Degrees of lampshades are hung on the subject. The Cavemen will make weird comments on your shiny stones and such, however a medieval guard has no problem talking to a robot from 2000 some odd years into the future.

* [[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Team Possible]] found themselves wrongly dressed when they entered the BadFuture in ''[[TheMovie A Sitch in Time]]'' because, according to little more than mere fashion rules, everyone should be wearing [[EvilOverlord Shego's]] uniform.
* Similar to the above example, [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb Candace]] finds herself out of fashion by not wearing a lab coat like Dr. Doofenshmirtz's after she messes with history (thus creating a BadFuture).

* During filming for ''Film/{{Star Trek IV|The Voyage Home}}'' the director was somewhat disappointed that the locals didn't even ''blink'' at the actors wandering around in strange uniforms.
** It wasn't even during filming, it was prior to filming, and it was non-actors in the full Starfleet "Red Jacket" uniforms.
*** Of course they '''weren't''' strange uniforms. They were probably recognized as being Star Trek uniforms and then not given a second glance.

* Parodied in "Almost...But Not Quite" by Dayton Ward (''{{Star Trek|ExpandedUniverse}}: Strange New Worlds II'') where two Temporal Investigations agents (based on a report of [[Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome Kirk's visit to 20th Century San Francisco]]) disguise themselves as punk rockers (based on the one Spock nerve-pinched on the bus, one assumes) when visiting Griffith Observatory. Needless to say, they stick out a bit.

* Invoked with the "[[http://www.snopes.com/photos/supernatural/hipster.asp Time-travelling hipster]]" photo- a man in a 1941 photo looks normally dressed (t-shirt and shades) by today's standards but out of place among the suited and hat-wearing populace. As Snopes explains, all the out-of-place looking items were available at the time, just not very widespread.
