People can get caught up in the fashions of a certain time, and just cringe thinking about it later on. This can be any time, but usually it's about the decades immediately before most present day works. Such as, in the 90s and early 2000s, TheSeventies and TheEighties were the most popular subjects for this, but now those later decades are slowly becoming this.

This is virtually universally TruthInTelevision for people looking back on their younger days. Remember, people: whatever you think is fashionable and stylish today will look ridiculous to the next generation, or yourself some years later.

** Another episode has a flashback about the gang (minus Joe who hadnt moved to Quahog yet) hanging out at the Drunken Clam in the '70s, '80s and finally in 1999. They all wear stereotypical clothing in the '70s and '80s, such as Cleveland having a huge afro and bellbottom pants in the '70s, Quagmire wearing a MiamiVice outfit in the '80s, etc. Also, Clevelands catchphrase changes in each scene.
--->'''Cleveland:''' Oh that's cool/that's fly/you're living a vida!
* Many people in flashbacks in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', but particularly Dr. Hibbert (who had an afro when Bart was born, beaded cornrows when Lisa was born, and a Mr. T-style mohawk when Maggie was born.)

* The second "DC Comics Special" of ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' has The Scarecrow stumble across footage of an old talent show at Smallville High that Lex Luthor participated in as a teenager... as a glam rock act named "Sex Luthor", complete with ridiculous 80s hair.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The Doctor has made all sorts of short-sighted fashion decisions over the years, making this a frequent theme whenever he recalls his early behavior or meets himself:

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' usually has everyone dressing in over-the-top 90s styles in the scenes set in the 90s, but really took this to extremes with a whole episode set in 2007. From Todd's emo hair, Diane's stacked bob, PB's Ed Hardy tattoo shirts, Princess Carolyn's acid-washed denim skirts and Emily's Uggs, every detail is painful.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/RedDwarf'':
** In "Timeslides", the crew go back in time and meet a young Lister ([[TimeshiftedActor played by Craig Charles's younger brother Emile]]) who's trying to become a singer. The Cat finds his outfit hilarious.
--->'''Lister''': It's what everyone was wearing. It was called sham-glam.
--->'''Cat''': Look at that collar! You could go hang-gliding!
** In "Pete", the time wand is accidentally used to regress first Cat and Kochanski's hair and then their clothing to an earlier time in their lives. Holly thinks they look like the Turkish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest.

** In the book ''[[Literature/DoctorWho11Doctors11Stories The Roots of Evil]]'', the Fourth Doctor encounters a statue of his Eleventh self and despairs that he will someday think wearing a bow tie is a good idea, insisting that he hates them and that [[BowtiesAreCool they are not cool]].
