Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes'' had Sylvester suckered in by a TotallyRadical commercial for pickle chips and getting Granny to buy them for him, only for him to taste one and find out they taste terrible. The moral of the episode is you can't always believe commercials.

* In ''ILoveLucy'', Lucy and Ethel want expensive designer outfits from an ''outre'' French designer. Ricky and Fred slap together some atrocious-looking outfits from old potato sacks and bricabrac, and the girls make fools of themselves by wearing the absurd garments around Paris, and are thoroughly mocked by Ricky and Fred when they reveal the truth about the "designer dresses". This is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] when a famous Parisian designer actually copies the outfits for his new line‚ and [[DoubleSubversion doubly subverted]] when the humiliated Lucy and Ethel reveal they have burned the offending outfits.

* In one of the later episodes of ''{{Madeline}}'', a fashion designer named Madame Cliché (who tends to make rather bizarre clothes) creates designer clothing made entirely out of cheese, which quickly becomes the hottest thing in Paris. It doesn't last due to the fact that the clothes are made entirely out of a common dairy product. In addition, the musical number featured in the same episode ''itself'' is a Trend Aesop with the standard BeYourself message to back it up.

* In ''TheAngryBeavers'', Norbert forgets to chew to keep his teeth short and when his forest friends discover his long dentures, they all follow suit with it. The same goes for Dagget later, and they both suffer for it by having their teeth grow long enough to bind them.

* ''TheSimpsons'' did it in "Simpson Tide", in which Milhouse gets an earring that everyone else in school thinks is cool, so everyone starts getting one. Bart gets his, much to Homer's outrage. Bart later gives Homer the earring before embarking on a nuclear submarine with the Naval Reserve. The earring ends up becoming the ChekhovsGun that saves the submarine from sinking.

* The episode "Dressed To Kill" from ''MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' dealt with this. [[AlphaBitch Brit and Tiff]] are infuriated when XJ-9/Jenny manages to one-up them in terms of fashion sense. As the girls prepare for their prom, their gowns turn out to be made from Pip Crystals unknowingly lost by Smytus. It's soon discovered that said crystals [[AppliedPhlebotinum give them]] [[StockSuperpower superpowers]]. Naturally, they try to enact their revenge on Jenny until they discover that a new fashion statement has rolled in, causing them to abandon their dresses in horror. A later episode ("Victim of Fashion") has the two engaging in a fashion war with Jenny once more.
* In ''{{Doug}}'', TheProtagonist in a ShowWithinAShow called [[TeenDrama "Teen Heartstreet"]] wear [[LimitedWardrobe the same outfit Doug wears]]. Originally, Doug laughs this off, but the next day, everyone at school is wearing it. Doug spends the entire episode trying to reclaim his uniqueness...only for [[spoiler: [[HereWeGoAgain Skeeter's outfit to become the next big thing.]]]]

Trends are often considered the come-and-go "necessary evil" of human culture. Whether they're [[PopularityPolynomial locked in a cycle]] or they [[DeaderThanDisco plain old wither and die forever]], they help define specific moments in history, [[VindicatedByHistory for better]] [[UnfortunateImplications and worse]]. So it only makes sense that InUniverse examples of trends exist in fiction.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', protagonist Jerin Whistler is too sensible to follow any trends, but his sister Corelle insists he needs to wear tight trousers with a codpiece, as that's the latest fashion. She gets her wish, as Jerin is invited to court, along with some of his sisters, for his coming out in society. All the fashionable clothes do is attracting attention that Jerin would rather not have. The tailors who make his and his sisters' clothes for the ball tell them that there's a new fad every two weeks or so at court. The Whistlers think it is pretty silly, and immediately make plans to sell their new clothes before they return home, as what is fashionable at court is unwearable elsewhere, the textile used would be ruined by ''rain''.
