* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' added brooches and purses to the fairy outfits for their first power up (Charmix). In season 3, however, they [[SoLastSeason completely abandoned the Charmix]] and gave the girls totally new Enchantix outfits and powers, which meant a fresh start for the uniform. And in season 4, they once again abandon the Enchantix, replacing it with the Believix. There are also 2 sub-transformations, Sophix and Lovix, and no doubt seasons 5 and 6 will bring their own outfits - the episode guide for Season 5 mention Harmonix and Sirenix.

* ''SaintSeiya'': Another unusual ''male'' example: Seiya. At first, Bronze Cloths were fairly utilitarian pieces of armor: a chestplate here, shoulderguards there, shinguards over there, maybe asymmetrical gauntlets for style or protection. But as the Cloths were consecutively damaged, destroyed, repaired, and revived, they steadily became flashier and prettier. Most full-head helmets became tiaras, for instance. It all culminated in their transformation into "[[AGodAmI Divine Cloths]]" that came with wings, intricate (and pointless) decorative engravings on continuous surfaces, and curvy loops at the end of what used to be spikes or sharp edges.
* Parodied in ''LightNovel/KoreWaZombieDesuKa'', where Ayumu's Masou Shoujo outfit keeps sprouting more ribbons and bows as he (yes, [[DraggedIntoDrag he]]) powers up, eventually prompting Haruna to scream, "Stop! You mustn't get any cuter!"

* Subverted in ''Anime/KillLaKill''. Ryuko's an [[DarkerAndEdgier edgy piss take]] of the typical MagicalGirlWarrior, so Senketsu (her [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman power-granting]] LivingClothes) gets skimpier and spikier as they synchronize and get stronger.

* In ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', Utena goes through a transformation sequence prior to each of the many duels after her first, and it gets pretty damn elaborate later on; however, the only visible change in her outfit is the addition of a frilly trim and epaulets.
