* 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.

* 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.

* Though the 2001 film ''The Breed'' is set in a dystopic NotSoDistantFuture, many characters dress in stereotypical 50s detective noir get-ups. (Though to be fair, this is not limited solely to the vampires.)
