* ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'': The Master Builders dress in colourful, out-there outfits which represent their free and rebellious attitude and are often related to pop-culture, whilst [[BigBad Lord Business]] dresses accordingly to his name with his minions in dark, enforcement related clothes to symbolise a stricter, more systemised nature. Hell, [[TheDragon Good Cop Bad Cop]] is wearing an imposing black police officer's outfit and the [[SecretPolice Super Secret Police]] are all dressed in black.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'' takes a rather literal [[PlanetOfHats Planets of Hats ]]approach to this. The Centauri dress like the [[{{Prussia}} Prussian military]], the Narn favour leather oddments dyed and visibly stitched together, the Minbari go for priestly robes, and later, we see the warrior caste use somewhat more functional clothing. The humans start in the same outfits, but then splinter and argue over the clothing bin.

* In Creator/StevenBrust's ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' stories, Dragaerans in the Dragaeran Empire belong to one of 17 great Houses. Each House has its own colors, and most Dragaerans typically wear some variant of those colors. Jhereg wear grey and black, Dragons wear black and silver, Phoenix wear gold, and Orca wear pale blue and green. The House of the Yendi is the only one which doesn't have set colors. House colors become a plot point in ''The Phoenix Guards," when an independent-minded Dragaeran causes a romantic misunderstanding when she wears another house's colors.

** Some [=EarthForce=] ships don't look very much alike. For example, the ''Hyperion''-class heavy cruisers have a different design and different paint job than the ''Nova''-class dreadnoughts and the ''Omega''-class destroyers. This is due to them being produced by different defense contractors. The ''Hyperion''s were produced by [=KarmaTech=] and have a distinctly white (or light grey) and blue color scheme. The Rocketdyne-produced ''Nova''e and ''Omega''s are entirely dark grey, or even black. Of course, this is likely further meant to show off how varied humans are compared to the other races. Then again, we don't get to see a lot of different types of ships from other races.

* Played for laughs on ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' where the Nazi officers start wondering if the skulls on their uniforms [[HeelRealization make them the bad guys.]]

* Played for laughs on ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' where the Nazi officers start wondering if the skulls on their uniforms [[HeelRealization make them the bad guys.]]]] At one point, one of them accuses the other of being taken in by Allied propaganda, pointing out that naturally the Allies would be trying to frame them in a poor light. The other retorts that while this might be the case, the Allies didn't also get to design their uniforms.

This can also apply even with GrayAndGrayMorality. Just because you don't know which side is really the bad guys, doesn't mean you still can't tell one side from the other.

Not to be confused with SignificantWardrobeShift.



* To show Theodora's transformation as a "wild" girl, in ''Film/TheodoraGoesWild'', her outfits are extravagant, costly, and full of stylish 1930s splendor. Compare this to when we first see our protagonist in simple, modest suits.
