* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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".

* Just about any giant robot anime predating ''{{Macross}}'' includes disco haircuts and collared jumpsuits.

* 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.

* Inverted in ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', as Marty arrives late from the dance because he wanted to change back into his 1985 clothes.
-->'''Marty:''' You think I'm going back in that ''zoot suit?!''
* Parodied in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', when Doc Brown dresses Marty up in a vintage-1955 TV cowboy costume (bright red and pink in color) before sending him back to TheWildWest; Doc assures him that he'll fit right in; after all, that's how cowboys dressed back then, right?
* Averted in both [[Film/TheTimeMachine1960 film]] [[Film/TheTimeMachine2002 versions]] of ''Literature/TheTimeMachine'': one way the passing of time is shown is that fashions in a shop window change.
* Directly subverted ''Film/SomewhereInTime''. Christopher Reeve's character (Richard Collier) has enough foresight to buy a suit from a vintage clothing shop before heading back in time. When he gets back to 1912, he discovers that he is wearing a suit that was in fashion two years before and he sticks out like a sore thumb. Fortunately, the object of his journey finds this goofiness charming.



* Averted in ''Film/AKnightsTale'', where our hero was laughed at for wearing old-fashioned, out of style armor in his first tournament.
* Averted in ''Film/TheMagnificientAmbersons'' which opens with a montage of a character wearing various fashions that appeared over the past few months.



* Averted in ''Film/TheThreeMusketeers2011'' as King Louis and the Duke of Buckingham use the changing fashions of the day as an extension of their feud.
* Subverted in ''Film/AVeryLongEngagment'', which is mostly set in the 1920s, but where many characters still wear ''Belle Epocque'' fashions. This is because the makers of the film saw from studying old photographs that older people and many of those living in the provinces continued to wear their pre-World War 1 clothes.
* Averted in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact''. The first thing Picard does before beaming down to mid-21st century Earth is order the computer to replicate appropriate attire for the away team. Considering they were heading into a post-WorldWarIII society in the middle of Montana, their uniforms would've been much more noticeable than in [[Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome 1986 San Francisco]] or [[Recap/StarTrekVoyagerS3E8FuturesEnd 1996 Los Angeles]].

* Parodied in the ''{{Futurama}}'' episode "Roswell That Ends Well"; in an attempt to fit in in 1947 New Mexico, Leela dons a poodle skirt and beehive hairdo, and Professor Farnsworth wears a zoot suit and fedora while swinging a pocketwatch on a chain. Leela also tries to fit in using Fry's 1990s slang, with similar success.
