* A subtle example in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''; Elsa's ice dress is both a literal and figurative example of ImpossiblyCoolClothes. However, given the fact that, when running away from people who are trying to kill her, she repeatedly has to lift up the hem of her dress to keep from tripping on it...

However, given the fact that, when running away from people who are trying to kill her, she repeatedly has to lift up the hem of her dress to keep from tripping on it...it, it's also not particularly practical. [[JustifiedTrope Though in her defense]], she wasn't exactly ''planning'' on running away from any murderous individuals when she made the thing.


Added DiffLines:

* Insofar as natural plumage can be considered an "outfit", this is the case for some male birds. The vibrantly colored and often times very ''large'' feathers on, say, a peacock are very alluring, especially to a female bird. However, they make stealth virtually impossible (hence he can't hide from predators) and they can often weigh the bird down while he's flying (hence, he can't easily escape from a predator). Indeed, many peacocks and other birds like them have been known to shed their tail feathers when attempting to flee from a hungry predator, in a sort of natural world GivingThemTheStrip[=/=]LifeOrLimbDecision combo. Females of these species usually invert this trope, with their cryptic, nondescript plumage being the very definition of BoringButPractical.

** The wardrobe room on the ''Liberator'' is full of fancy impractical clothes. Behold Jenna and Cally saving the day in long skirts and six inch heels.

* Liberace practically invented wearing completely over-the-top elaborate costumes in the music industry. Outside of the numerous video clips and pictures online, this depiction of him as a showman in BehindTheCandelabra is accurate.

* Spoofing this trope is the whole point of a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lqi64nG9VIY&feature=bf_prev&list=PLD89FDFFB45EFA3DD&lf=results_main series of TV commercials]] by Reitmans, a Canadian chain of women's clothing stores. In each ad, the impracticality of "haute couture" is hilariously contrasted with Reitmans clothes, "designed for real life".
