* In an article in the 1970's New York magazine had an article analyzing clothing and fashion styles in movies. They said that you could tell when a movie was ''made'' by those styles, but not really when it was supposed to be set. An example were the hair styles in The Great Gatsby (1974) where Robert Redford and Sam Waterston should have had hair parted in the middle and slicked down, not the 1970's way it was.

-->We don't have the generational identifiers previous decades had: we're not hippies, mods, punks or breakdancers like people were in the olden times. Instead, we're all of those things, mixed up and amalgamated: a pair of flares here, some Stan Smiths there, a jaunty trilby way over there in a Milton Keynes singles night.

* Subverted on the NewsRadio episode that takes place in a futuristic spaceship. Everybody else wears "space clothes", but Jimmy comes in wearing the same suit he wears in every other show, and Space Dave mocks his ridiculous clothes. Jimmy defends the suit by saying it was the height of fashion in the late 20th century.

* Anton Corbijn's ''Control'' gets all the changing 1970's fashions right. So the Ian in 1973 goes to see Bowie with guyliner and a fluffy jacket, but by 1979 is wearing the familiar austere JoyDivision outfit.

* Mostly played straight in Feudal Japan. Evidence (including extant garments and paintings/prints) shows that both men's and women's fashions changed very little between the end of the Sengoku period (1600) and the end of the Edo period (1868). Prior to 1600, fashions did change but slowly and mostly with small, subtle changes. For example, late Heian period (1100-1185) court garb looks very different than Momoyama period (1568-1600) garb, but the differences are relatively small compared to comparable western garb.

* Played with in Diana Wynne Jones's ''{{Hexwood}}'', where Vierran, the girl providing costumes for intergalactic travellers, has a puckish sense of humour. The Reigners end up with a business suit (Reigner One), New Look-style ladies' suit and high heels (Two), outfit that "looks like Superman" (Three, but then he didn't bother to ask for a costume), ill-fitting NormanWisdom suit (Four) and monk's robe (Five). Vierran gives herself authentic 1990s casual clothes (jeans and long jumper) and Two tells her "You look like a peasant from New Xai".

* In this instance, it's not time travel but production values. The producers of ''HogansHeroes'' blew their entire costume budget on those nifty reproduction Nazi outfits, so all the non-Nazi and non-main-character actors had to bring their own outfits. Thus you will see every secondary non-Nazi on the show - which takes place during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo - dressed in the fashions of the era of the show's production - the late 1960's.
