* ''Film/SchoolOfRock'' : While in school, most of the students adhere to the dress code, except Freddy, who pushes up his sleeves and gets in trouble from Ms. Mullins. Later, the whole band wears versions of their uniforms. So does Dewey, in a ShoutOut to Angus Young.

** Mixed with a little CatholicSchoolGirlsRule , often the only time you'll see uniform skirts at their regulation knee length or longer is the first few weeks of freshman year. Many students roll up or hem the skirts to make them shorter, and accessorize stockings and footwear.
** In 2016, [[http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/08/kentucky-butler-traditional-high-school-dress-code-suspends-racist-hair-policy.html Butler Traditional High School in Kentucky]] tried to impose dress code on hairstyles, such as dreadlocks, cornrows, and "unnatural" hair colours, with some UnfortunateImplications of institutional racism. The policy is under review; if passed, allowing varying hairstyles will be an example of the NonUniformUniform.

** It can also cause tension when the workplace tries to impose bans on "natural" hair and "ethnic"-style accessories. One employee, [[http://www.someecards.com/life/workplace/june-rivas-boss-banned-headscarf-cosplay/ June Rivas]] used cosplay to protest a rule against headscarves at her workplace.

* In ''DGrayMan'', excorcists wear uniforms that share a specific style, yet they are fitted to the style or needs of each of the excorcists. For example, Lenalee will wear a {{Dangerously Short Skirt}} or super-short shorts, supposedly to commend her fighting style, and Lavi prefers tighter pants than the rest of the male cast because he carries his weapon in a thigh holster.

* [[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Utena]] seems to be following the school rules by wearing the approved uniform (for men) but we never actually see a male student wearing the style.

* [[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Utena]] seems to be following is an unusual example, as her red, white and blue outfit is unique and completely different from both the school rules by wearing girls' and the approved uniform (for men) but we boys' uniforms at the school. In the manga this is explained as her taking advantage of a loophole in the dress code; in the anime, it's never actually see a male student wearing the style.addressed.

* This is very, very frequent throughout ''Franchise/DanganRonpa''. While Hopes Peak Academy has an official uniform, only a handful of characters wear it un-customised, with many not bothering to wear it at all.

Added DiffLines:

* [[TheEmpire Peacekeeper]] uniforms in ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' varied an awful lot from episode to episode, partly because the production team themselves were never really satisfied with any of the designs. By the end of the show, the rule, especially for officers, seemed to be "any vaguely military-looking ensemble at all as long as it's [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver red and black]] and [[HellBentForLeather mostly leather]]".

* The Dogs of war in CryHavoc all wear customized versions of the same basic uniform. This is explained away by their jobs as mercenaries who chose their own gear.

* Members of the GreenLanternCorps are allowed to customize their uniform pretty much however they choose so long as they keep the green-black-white color scheme and the Lantern badge is clearly visible. This is more or less necessary, since while many Lanterns are at least ''approximately'' humanoid, not all of them are. Mogo is probably the most extreme example; as a sentient planet, his "uniform" is green foliage growing in a "belt" pattern with the Lantern logo around his equatorial region.
