* In earlier [[Film/HarryPotter film adaptations]] of the Literature/HarryPotter series, the students of Hogwarts wore their wizard robes just about all the time, with the occasional exception of the [[http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Weasley_jumper Weasley jumper]]. Starting with the third adaptation, however, in which the director Creator/AlfonsoCuaron showed that having Hogwarts students wear Muggle clothes outside of class would make the characters more engaging to non-fans, the students have been depicted as wearing a more varied wardrobe when not in class or at formal events.
** Not quite. It seems the wizard's robes are for school and formal events. Ron and his siblings are seen wearing Muggle clothing in the first film while boarding the Hogwarts Express. They're also seen to wear Muggle clothes when Harry goes to stay with them in the second film; even in Diagon Alley, all are wearing sweaters and slacks, with the casual addition of a cloak. However, it is more realistic in the third film to say that the students spend their time outside of class in jeans and t-shirts, rather than the first two films, in which pretty much all the students were wearing the uniform all day long while in the school. This would be especially odd for Harry and Hermione, who were raised in the Muggle world. It would be more realistic for them especially to change out of wizard robes in favor of familiar clothing.
*** Not in the books, where ALL Hogwarts students wear their robes every day of the school year. The only exceptions are the Weasley jumpers, which get worn under the robes or over pyjamas, but even on weekends the students have to be in uniform.
*** Since Hogwarts is very much based on a British public school, somewhere in the 1950s or 60s it would be normal for Lower School pupils to wear uniform at all times during term time, at least until the Third Form. Uniform would then be progressively relaxed until the Fifth Form.

* All of the main cast of ''Film/TheRoyalTenenbaums'' wear the same clothes throughout the entire movie, regardless of time shifts. In flashback sequences, you see that most of the characters even [[SameClothesDifferentYear dressed this way in childhood]].
** Creator/WesAnderson in general is quite fond of this trope, though it's usually more justified by the story, such as the clothes being some sort of uniform, or the story not allowing the characters to have spare clothes. Overall, Anderson seems to just appreciate his characters being easily identifiable by the way they dress.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', for the first few years, the main characters used to wear the same few clothes in all their appearances. Elliot in particular used to default to wearing a black t-shirt and rarely deviating from that. This was {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in a non-canon EGS:NP storyline which [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/?date=2004-03-30 completely revamped]] Tedd, Susan and Sarah but left Elliot unchanged except for now wearing a white t-shirt.

Even with the characters' wardrobes getting extended, Elliot still favours the black shirts, with TheRant on [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2326 one strip]] where he wears one two days in a row explaining he has a closet full of them.

* Creator/DanielRadcliffe enjoyed annoying the paparazzi during his stint on the London stage - for six months he deliberately wore the same clothes when leaving the theatre so photographs would be worthless.
** Creator/JenniferAniston had done the same thing previously; she always wore the same pair of bright orange cargo shorts any time she was out in public. Since it made it nearly impossible to tell if a photo was new or not, it rendered most photos of her nearly worthless (this was back when she was still on ''Friends'' and married to Brad Pitt, making her even more of a tabloid target than she is now.)

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' showcases this trope as there's only three real outfits we've seen the characters in - their normal clothes, their sleepwear and their school uniforms.
