* In ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', Alucard preferred the Victorian era, most likely. Just with gaudy red and modern Gothic design. We do see him [[BadassInANiceSuit rocking a business suit]] at least once, though, and [[BadassLongcoat his red coat]] is pretty snazzy, too.

His outfit when he was [[GenderBender a little girl]] during the 40's was also quite contemporary (for the time). He's also seen in what can only be called a BDSM leather outfit and [[spoiler:14th century plate armour when he's at Level Zero (or in other words: How he appeared as UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler)]].

** They also dress to fit in, if they are trying to infiltrate an organization, such as Godric and Eric dressing as [[PuttingOnTheReich SS officers]] during WorldWarTwo when looking for [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' follows this trope to a T: Vampires mostly stem from the Victorian and Elizabethan era and wear clothing reflecting the nobility of those eras (though the female vampires' attire is more {{Stripperiffic}} than what would be normal for those times). Their wardrobes run on RuleOfCool, however, and are rarely, if ever, close to accurate. Vampire cities underground also primarily have Gothic architecture, as opposed to the modern-day highrises and citadels on the surface.

* ''Literature/NightfallSeries'': Some vampires wear clothes from their human times. Most combine styles from all times and places they have experienced.

* Throughout his early publication history, immortal caveman ''ComicBook/VandalSavage'' consistently dressed like an eighteenth century Englishman even though he was in the modern day.

* Although deriding the idea that vampires have an inate fashion sense, ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Rhesus Chart]]'' does point out the difficulty that older vampires (who out of necessity are isolated from society, as well as being occult sorcerers more interested in research than interaction) have of fitting in with society as it changes around them (not just fashions but also the English language has changed over the past century). One vampire gets round this by training a {{Renfield}} from every generation to act as his surrogate.

** The character of Spike could be considered a loose example. Originally a plain vanilla vampire from Anne Rice era, he lifted some fashion tips from Music/BillyIdol and [[Music/SexPistols Syd Vicious]] (though Spike would claim they stole ''his'' look) and remains stuck in the 80s. Going by flashbacks he'd been rocking variations of the look for nearly a century before it became popular, although his iconic leather coat is a trophy from the actual 80s.

Added DiffLines:

* The vampire protagonists of ''Film/WhatWeDoInTheShadows'' do try to keep up with fashion trends, they just fail horribly at it and are thoroughly mocked for their attire each time they go outside. In their defense, the lack of reflection isn't helping.

** According to the pilot commentary, the original idea was the vampires eternally wear the clothes of the era they died in. This idea was swiftly dropped with the introduction of vampires centuries-old who pass for yuppies.

This idea was swiftly dropped with the introduction of vampires centuries-old who pass for yuppies. The reason given in the commentary was that after seeing it in the pilot the creators realized it was stupid.
