[[caption-width-right:320:Meet Padme Amidala, the galaxy's biggest clotheshorse. How much? This is just her wardrobe in ''one'' of the movies.]]

->''"All I have to say is that she walks through a doorway, and has a wardrobe change. I got one -- sorry, two dresses and the first one looks the same all the way around."''
-->-- '''CarrieFisher''' (Princess Leia), on Padme Amidala in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels.

Some characters never seem to wear the same outfit more than once. Whether they are rich, or shouldn't have nearly enough clothes, they seem to have a new outfit for every other episode, to every other scene.

This takes special effort regardless of being live action or animated, as a whole new costume needs to be made (or grabbed from stock) in some way.

Occasionally, in Real Life, actresses will occasionally have it included in their contract that they get to keep any clothes they wear during the show (Debra Messing did for ''Series/WillAndGrace,'' as did Pamela Anderson for ''Series/{{VIP}}''.) When you combine that with the fact that if a show is popular enough, designers will send freebies to shows for some possible publicity, it gives an incentive to have characters change clothes as often as possible.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''AliveTheFinalEvolution'' has the protagonists swap clothes quite a bit, which is a little odd when you remember that Taisuke, Nami, and Yuta are all runaways surviving on whatever Taisuke can earn with short, part-time jobs. Partially justified in that they get into fights and require a change of clothes afterward, but sometimes it seems to be just for the sake of a new outfit.
* Tomoyo from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' always gives Sakura a different dress for every single time she must fight a card, even if that means using 2 different dresses for each episode. Also justified, because Tomoyo is Sakura's [[CosplayOtakuGirl Costume Tailor Otaku Girl]] and has a huge bank account at the Crédit Suisse bank.
** This seems to be a requirement for anything under CLAMP's belt. If one considers ''X/1999'', ''{{Kobato}}'', ''Tsubasa'' '''and''' ''Manga/XxxHOLiC'' (see below for elaboration on the latter two) one could make a very compelling argument that the female quartet just wants to draw anything and anyone in ImpossiblyCoolClothes.
** What makes Tomoyo's work so impressive is she has outfits specially made to deal with specific cards. And she has these outfits as early as the (actual) second episode.[[note]]As opposed to the "second episode" of Nelvana's {{Macekre}}d "English" version.[[/note]]
* The goddesses from ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' had unlimited wardrobes as well, although this was briefly demonstrated as an ability the goddesses had; they [[AWizardDidIt used their magic]] to create outfits for themselves. This occured in direct contrast to Keiichi, who almost always wears the same outfit in every chapter (white shirt and jeans), a fact which was often lampshaded in later volumes.
* In ''SuzumiyaHaruhi'', Asahina Mikuru never wears the same casual outfit twice. This doesn't come up much, as she's usually either wearing her school outfit, or is being forced to cosplay by Haruhi.
** In the anime version of "Endless Eight" we get to see the Brigade in a lot of different clothes.
* Yuko Ichihara of ''Manga/XxxHOLiC'' and ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle''. Not only does she wear a completely new and incredibly elaborate outfit every chapter or episode, she often can squeeze in two or three additional costume changes.
** There are two outfits that buck the trend in order to indicate thematic/plot information: the formal gown from her first appearance in ''Tsubasa'' recurs at least two more times, both very solemn occasions involving huge wishes and prices. Her kimono with butterfly wings attached to the obi appears once in ''Tsubasa'' and at least three times in ''Holic'', each at an extremely important plot juncture involving Watanuki. In fact, when Watanuki realizes that he's seen her wear that particular kimono more than once, he takes it as a sign that something is wrong.
** [[spoiler: Watanuki, after taking over the shop, has walked in Yuuko's footsteps and now also wears a unique outfit every new story arc.]]
* Isaac and Miria from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' wear new costumes or disguises on each theft. These range from dressing up as mummies to what can be even considered as cosplay.
* ''GreatTeacherOnizuka'' never seems to wear the same t-shirt twice; on one making-of {{Yonkoma}} drawn by an assistant, he bemoans the complicated nature of these t-shirt designs.
* Fujiko Mine of ''Franchise/LupinIII'' rarely wears the same outfit across more than one episode.
* Beginning with ''InitialD'''s ''Second Stage'' arc, every character wears different clothing from day to day.
* Similarly to ''SamuraiJack'', in ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' Kenshiro would always destroy his own jacket before the main fight OnceAnEpisode, but would have a new one from nowhere later.
* The titular ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' have a different set of outfits for all of them (including everything from knights to police officers) almost OnceAnEpisode.
** Not just during cosplays, but also with their casual clothes. In the anime none of their casual outfits are seen more than once. In the manga Haruhi wears the same outfit every so often, but she's also from a lower middle class family, so it makes sense. Ranka is also seen in his iconic shirt with the kanji for "father" quite a few times in the manga, but it was a gift from Haruhi, so it's probably a favorite shirt of his.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Averted in the main narrative. The Shinigami and the Karakura kids have {{Non Uniform Uniform}}s when on duty / at school, but each major character also has a realistic selection of street clothes in a distinctive personal style. You're not going to mistake Ichigo's bright wristbands and snarky t-shirts for Ishida's pressed slacks and nehru collars, but you may see Ichigo wear the same t-shirt twice. Characters' styles also change noticeably during {{Time Skip}}s. Creator/TiteKubo considered becoming a fashion designer instead of a mangaka and hates the LimitedWardrobe trope. He'll play UnlimitedWardrobe straight for color spreads, splash pages, and other art extras.
* It sometimes seems the [[AuthorAppeal whole point]] of ''ParadiseKiss''. It '''is''' about a group of fashion designers.
** It was already the case in ''Manga/GokinjoMonogatari'', the work ''Paradise Kiss'' is a SpinOff of.
* Rahzel from ''HatenkouYuugi'' wears a different outfit in every episode, despite the fact that she's travelling on a presumeably limited budget.
* The costume designer for the titular Princesses of ''PrincessPrincess'' falls all over himself to create costumes, each more fabulous than the last.
* {{Kobato}}'s outfit changes every day. This is weird, considering [[PerpetualPoverty she has little money, and her only possessions are a futon, a bottle and an empty suitcase]]. Though this is probably the least mysterious thing about her.
* [[LadyOfWar Erza]] of ''Manga/FairyTail'' has Unlimited Wardrobe as ''an actual power''; the "Requip" ability of her "The Knight" magic lets her [[InstantArmor change between many outfits at will]], which includes both many different suits of [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman ability boosting armors]] used in combat and regular (or not so regular) clothes for other occasions. She once stated she has a stock of hundreds of outfits, and is continually adding more (as well as [[ClothingDamage losing some]], though it's not clear if damaged requips are permanently destroyed).
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' is a borderline case. Usagi and her friends would wear a "new" outfit in an episode, then change it to another in the next one, and change it again... and after a while, you'd notice that the outfits repeated themselves in a regular basis. (It was specially notorious in the case of Ami, who seemingly owned just ''one'' pair of pants and one more boyish sweater...)
* [[HanaNoKoLunlun Lunlun]] has this as her superpower, since her TransformationTrinket gives her access to an unlimited range of outfits.
* Becky of ''PaniPoniDash'' shows up for school in a different and [[FanService unique]] [[FetishFuel outfit]] nearly every episode. For whatever reason, [[LimitedWardrobe the same can't be said for any of the other teachers.]]
* Michiko in ''MichikoToHatchin'' seems to be wearing something new every episode. This incredible variance is especially surprising considering she's an outlaw with very little to her name. An early episode features her casually stealing shoes for Hatchin, so that's probably how she procures her clothes.
* All of the characters in ''{{Figure 17}}'' change clothes every day, no matter how minor their role in the story is. Even things like pajamas that would normally remain constant in an animated show get swapped out as time passes in the story.
* ''Manga/RaveMaster''; somewhat Justified as most of the time their clothes are getting damaged.
* The main cast of ''Anime/AnoHanaTheFlowerWeSawThatDay'' (with the exception of [[JacobMarleyApparel Menma]]), when not in school uniforms, have completely different clothes in every episode.
* Justifed in ''Kodomo No Jikan'', for two of the characters at least. It's shown Rin gets all kinds of stuff because Reiji wants to be nice and Kuro's rich as hell.
* The title character of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' has only three real outfits he wears in the anime, but the manga his wardrobe is notably much more varied. In addition to those recurring outfits, he also switched through an assortment of different shirts, coats and hats that he would wear for one arc each. The covers of every volume also portray him wearing a different outfit on the front of each, even if he's not the character to wear it in-story.
* While all of the main cast in ''Anime/HighschoolDxD'' have at least a couple of outfits (not counting the frequent use of [[{{Fanservice}} birthday suits]]), it's usually just a few sets of street clothes and their school uniform. The females leads, especially Rias and Akeno, thoroughly embrace this trope, wearing a new outfit almost every time they're seen trying a new activity. Understandable, since Rias is Heiress Apparent to a very prestigious demon noble house and Akeno is her senior vassal.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* TheWasp from Comicbook/TheAvengers has had several dozen different costumes throughout the years; artist George Perez was particularly fond of designing new outfits for her. [[JustifiedTrope This is to call attention to her civilian job as a fashion designer.]] To give some idea of just how frequent this was, during the Terminus Factor storyline Jan is wearing totally different costumes in parts 4 and 5 -- apparently she took the time to change ''on the quinjet'' in between!
** The ScarletWitch is almost as bad.
* You never see any of the kids from ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' wearing the same outfit twice. This is especially ridiculous considering that they're supposed to be runaways with limited resources. Granted, most of them came from wealthy families, but none of them seemed to be carrying more than a single backpack when they went on the run.
* While never explicitly called out, {{Storm}} from the ComicBook/{{X-Men}} has had more costumes than any other member. It got particularly bad in the second half of the ''X-Treme X-Men'' series, where she had on a different costume in nearly every story arc.
* Plus the X-Men teams in general have had far more costume changes over the years than typical superheroes.
** The FantasticFour are also changing their uniforms all the time. But since they're always variations on the same basic theme of blue bodysuits with the team logo on the chest, they tend to all run together.
* Franchise/{{Batman}} may be an archetypical example of ClothesMakeTheLegend but in various adaptations, he's got other outfits ranging from PoweredArmor to HumongousMecha to even costumes fitted for his allies, ''[[CrazyPrepared just in case]]''. Who knew {{Superman}}'s logo looked pretty good on Batman's suit?
* [[Franchise/ArchieComics Betty and Veronica]] are classic examples of this trope. It's also one of the rare instances when the Unlimited Wardrobe is {{justified|Trope}} for both girls. Veronica obviously has the money to buy whatever clothes she wants...and as for Betty, in some stories she's developed an impressive wardrobe of her own because Veronica just hands off any clothes she gets tired of to Betty. Not that Betty necessarily minds, since Veronica's generosity allows her to keep up with Ronnie in fashion despite her much more limited finances.
** ''ComicBook/KatyKeene'' has had so many outfits, that Veronica once celebrated finally owning more outfits (although Katy still modeled far more).
* Tony Stark updates the design of his basic IronMan armor every ten or so years. This is done by the artists to prevent {{Zeerust}}. Stark is also shown on more than one occasion to have ''hundreds'' of purpose-built armors, stored in a gigantic cellar. In recent years he seems to update the design far more often, likely to explain away times artists draw the armor wrong due to the increasingly complex designs being difficult to be repeated perfectly across comics.
* {{Spiderman}}: How many costumes has he gone through?!
** Averted in that his costume changes are always very temporary. As is, he has had as many costumes as {{Superman}}.
** Also if you count the Venom Symbiote as a costume.
* A plausible answer for many of the costume changes in comics boils down to two words: ClothingDamage. This is also lampshaded every now and then, such as Spider-Man more than once wearing some mish-mosh of things during particularly grueling marathons of combat, once needing to use his ''webbing'' to keep his suit together and still having the wits to lament how hard it was going to be to get a whole bunch of new suits.
* In contrast to her game version Amy in ''SonicTheComic'' has numerous articles of clothing, apparently changing them every arc (including one-shots). She's worn eye-liner on one occasion, and has even sported a ''Gothic Lolita'' look in the [[SonicTheComicOnline fan continuation]].
* ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel'' has several outfits worn by the models.
* The mysterious, heroic senator who first appears in ''Comicbook/TheTransformersIDW''. He changes his color scheme every time he appears. This highlights his rather eccentric personality in contrast to the other senators and conceals his true identity from the reader.
* Miss America Chavez in Kieron Gillen's run of ''Comicbook/YoungAvengers'' is seen sporting at least five different outfits based around the stars and stripes theme. According to WordOfGod, America does not identify as a superhero and prefers doing her hero-ing on the street level, thus her street clothes. (They also wanted to show off Jamie [=McKelvie=]'s costume designs.)

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* [[CostumePorn Seemingly]], ''everyone'' in ''MyImmortal''.
* In the LyricalNanoha fanfic Blood and Spirit, Arisa, having died and come back as a ghost, has the ability to imagine herself wearing any clothing, and thus change her outfit accordingly.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* ''Franchise/StarWars''. Two words: Padme Amidala. Wookieepedia even has a [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Padme_Amidala%27s_wardrobe separate article]] for that. Justified because she's the queen of Naboo, later a senator representing at least a system, if not a sector. Between the hair and the outfits, she's a wonderful challenge for female ([[DragQueen or male]]) cosplayers.
** As seen [[http://jasonpal.deviantart.com/gallery/?sort=popularity&catpath=/&q=#/dxctwq here as a collection]].
** Lampshaded in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''. When stranded on Tatooine, one of the things that Obi-Wan suggests in order to get money to repair the hyperdrive is to sell the Queen's wardrobe.
** Padme's handmaidens also have their own ever-changing assortment of robes, to show hers to greater advantage.
* While not nearly as bad as Padme, both Arwen and Éowyn of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' films have quite a few dresses for their characters.[[http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/Character.htm This website]] shows off their, plus the rest of the cast's outfits in detail.
* As a rare male example, WilliamShatner in ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' changes through five or six uniforms during one mission.
* Scarlett O'Hara in ''Film/{{Gone With The Wind}}'' wears many dresses (most of which are [[PimpedOutDress of the pimped out kind]]) in the film.
** Justified as the film spans a time period of about ten years.
* Jareth of ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' condenses this for movie length by wearing something new almost every time he appeared on screen.
* Creator/ElizabethTaylor in ''Film/{{Cleopatra}}'' had 65 costumes, a record for a motion picture. This works out to an average of one costume for every five minutes in the extended directors cut. She ''was'' the Queen of Egypt.
* Both Blind Mag and Amber Sweet in ''RepoTheGeneticOpera'' have striking costume changes for each scene they appear in. Amber goes one step further, however, by also having different hair colors different body features, as befits an addict to high-tech plastic surgery.
* KirstenDunst as MarieAntoinette, for the same reasons as Elizabeth. Dunst wears five costumes less than Taylor in a movie that lasts half as long. Now that's ''got'' to be a record! Well, it got them an Oscar.
* Well, screw both Dunst and Taylor: Throughout the film version of ''Music/{{Evita}}'', Music/{{Madonna}} had undergone 85 costume changes, 20 more than the latter (including 39 [[NiceHat hats]], 45 [[AllWomenLoveShoes pairs of shoes]], and 56 [[EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry pairs of earrings]]), which is enough to earn her a spot in the 1996 Guinness Book of World Records! That's a REAL Unlimited Wardrobe!
* In ''TheGreatRace'' NatalieWood wears a different costume in every scene, despite taking part in a car race around the world.
* The Creator/ShirleyMacLaine comedy ''Film/WhatAWayToGo'' is interspersed with parodies of other movie genres. One of these is the "1950's Big Budget Hollywood Romance", and so her character goes through five or six extravagant costume changes in as many minutes. (And in the ''rest'' of the film she runs the gamet from furs to near-rags..)
* Maggie Cheung wears a different {{qipao}} in every scene of ''InTheMoodForLove''.
* Near everyone in ''Film/{{Clueless}}'', since it is set in Beverly Hills, but especially Cher who even has a program on her computer to pre-match her outfits so that she can hit a button on her closet and have the clothes roll out to her like at the dry cleaners.
* Lisa Fremont in ''RearWindow'':
-->'''Jeff:''' Is this the Lisa Fremont who never wears the same dress twice?\\
'''Lisa:''' Only because it's expected of her.
* ''TheDuchess'': Keira Knightley wears a different dress in Every. Single. Scene. Justified because the film takes place over several years and she's ludicrously rich, but still.
* ''DropDeadGeorgous'': Satin Chow lives by this even going so far as to announce a costume change.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''Literature/TheClique'', the members of the Pretty Committee change outfits ''all the time''. This only accentuated by the fact that every outfit is described in brand name-filled paragraphs.
* In [[BabySittersClub The Baby Sitters' Club series]], Claudia is, in ''every single book'', said to never wear the same outfit twice. She goes out of her way to do this; never in the history of the books has she worn an exact outfit more than once, even if it means just using a different pair of earrings.
* Sei Shonagon in ''Literature/ThePillowBook''. Then again, she was a lady-in-waiting of Empress Sadako, and she was very fussy about following (or even setting) court fashion.
* TheGuardians can create clothing with a thought, though some have more skill than others. Selah, an 18th century housewife, describes it as her reward for spending her life sewing.
* Molly Metcalf from the SecretHistories series has a magical version of this. She can conjure up any outfit she likes with just a thought.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The Cat in ''Series/RedDwarf'' wore a different outfit every episode. Not initially a full example, since it's an explicit part of his character - in "Future Echoes", faced with a choice between death or trimming his wardrobe down to only two suits, he declares that "Two suits ''is'' dead!", and considers cutting off his leg to give him room for a third - but it slips into how-does-he-do-that territory in season six, when the ship unexpectedly disappears, leaving the crew with just one shuttlecraft and its contents. (On the other hand, season six also contains the only episode in which the Cat is seen to repeat an outfit, setting up a joke in which the return of a killer android from the episode in which he previously wore the outfit leaves him less concerned about imminent death than about the damage his reputation will take if it gets out that he's worn the same outfit twice.) Naturally, in the "Better Than Life" episode, one of his fantasies catered for by the virtual reality simulation involves his wardrobe - it's so big that it crosses an international timezone.
** According to the DVD commentary, it has happened at least once behind the scenes. One outfit the Cat wore was a black and white striped outfit. The designers, needing a new outfit, took the clothes and proceeded to use a felt tip marker to colour the white stripes ''yellow''.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': In contrast to the decidedly limited wardrobe of the Doctor, most of his companions wore different outfits in each serial. In the 2000s series, Rose Tyler is often seen coming home from time-travelling with a basket full of laundry for her mother to do.
** The new series has shown the TARDIS to contain an extremely large wardrobe from which the Doctor picks his outfits, and the Tenth Doctor has occasionally been seen to trade in his brown suit for a blue one, or to don a tuxedo.
** The Third Doctor, being very fashion-conscious as a character trait, had lots and lots of outfits. He tended to wear velvet smoking jackets and frilly shirts but all bets were off in terms of colour scheme.
** The Fourth Doctor tended to swap parts of his outfit about depending on setting and mood but maintained the same color scheme (browns, greys, burgandy, bright reds and the occasional dash of purple or grass green) and a characteristic long scarf (except for "The Talons of Weng-Chiang" where he wore a cape instead). He maintained most of the same general dress sense, with the exception of his first outfit which is noticeably more contemporary to the 1970s than the early-Victorian style he adopts from "Pyramids of Mars" onward, having been designed for [[CharacterizationMarchesOn a character that ended up going in a different direction than expected]]. He tends to switch out footwear a lot in particular. Other Fourth Doctor stories show in passing a large number of inner rooms of the TARDIS, including an extremely large room the Doctor refers to as his "boot cupboard".
** Even though individual Doctors tend to settle either on [[ChangedMyJumper a single outfit]] or variations on a theme, it's probably justified that he owns a lot of clothes because he regularly (well, regularly for someone who measures his lifespan in centuries) regenerates into a new body and personality. Never know what the new you will want to dress like, or if your old stuff will even still fit. He also seems to keep around clothes that his companions leave behind; in one serial Sarah Jane finds a dress, and the Doctor comments that it belonged to Victoria, meaning he's probably hung onto it for decades at least. Despite this, he's still had to steal his clothes from hospital locker rooms on [[RunningGag no less than three separate occasions]].
** Martha Jones wore the same outfit for her first 6 episodes, although they did take place straight after each other and since it was supposed to be "just one trip", she hadn't bought a change of clothes. After she and the Doctor returned to Earth, she presumably picked up more clothes since her outfits started changing.
** In the fourth series of the New Dr. Who, Donna bought a number of suitcases with her when she joined the Doctor in the TARDIS, including a hat box, and thus has a different outfit every episode.
** Whereas in the Classic series, Sarah Jane Smith often had multiple costume changes in several serials. Usually these changes were for no apparent reason including one time in 'Genesis of the Daleks', where Sarah found a change of clothes ''in a cupboard full of explosives''. This was due to a mistake by the production team - the serial after that one had already been filmed with that costume, and it was only when they were filming Genesis that they realised Sarah didn't have a chance to get back to the TARDIS in between (having been forced onto that mission by the Time Lords), so they had to [[AssPull contrive]] a way for her to change clothes.
** Amy Pond does occasionally reuse jackets and her long red scarf, but for the most part she has a pretty varied wardrobe. Though it is logical that she brought a decent amount of clothes with her, since she'd been waiting for him to return since she was 10 years old and would probably be CrazyPrepared.
** River Song, so far, has worn a different outfit every time her personal timeline intersected with the Doctor's. As of the end of season 5, we've had a white spacesuit, two different black dresses, a skin-tight black pant suit, white overalls, and a Cleopatra disguise.
** The Twelfth Doctor's outfit has an unusually large amount of variation considering how minimalist it is, much more than his predecessors. He sticks exclusively with dark blue, black and white with a red lining to his coat, but we've had all kinds of shirts, a jumper with holes in, various waistcoats, a warehouse coat, a cardigan (when criticised for this in an interview, he replied "Tom Baker wore a cardigan!") and formalwear resembling what the Third Doctor wore in "Spearhead from Space".
* The {{Sliders}} seemed to have new wardrobe (and always plenty of money) every week, despite only ever taking one change of clothes through the wormholes between worlds. There were occasional attempts to [[HandWave explain this]] (alternate versions of the sliders have the same ATM PIN), but it still strained [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief credibility]] to have every cast member show up with a whole new ensemble each week, especially since this would happen even with episodes that were set immediately after each other, leading one online fan to ask the question "what really goes on in that wormhole??"
* While all of the other castaways in ''GilligansIsland'' had to make do with a LimitedWardrobe or a few token outfits, the Howells dressed as though they had a bottomless clothes chest. One has to wonder just what they were ''doing'' taking all that clothing on what was ostensibly a three hour tour. (Not only did they have several outfits each, but they had costumes, wigs, enough fabric to make long door curtains, and large bundles of cash in varying denominations.) Additionally, the castaways as a whole even had enough spare clothing amongst them to sew together to make a ''theater curtain''.
** The Howells brought so many clothes with them on the Minnow because they were rich [[strike: bastards]] twits who were incapable of tolerating limited means, ever. In the unaired pilot you can see Gilligan struggling to carry several of their suitcases on board.
** Ginger also {{Flanderiz|ation}}ed into this in the later seasons; at first she's seen wearing an outfit made from canvas (or something) with "SS Minnow" stenciled on it.
** When you take into account all the people and stuff that tends to wash up on that island (how far can it actually be from the shipping lanes), a crate full of women's evening gowns doesn't seem that unlikely.
* The characters on ''SexAndTheCity'' were famous for this.
** In fact, the costume department took it upon themselves to ensure that no character ''ever'' appeared in the same outfit twice. It became easier in later series, when they started being sent lots of freebies...
* The cast and crew of ''NewsRadio'' viewed Kathy Griffin's character on ''SuddenlySusan'' as a knock-off of their character Beth. Thus Beth would always wear lots of wacky one-of-a-kind clothes in an effort to make her inimitable.
* Becomes a major plot point in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''. Lily's fabulous wardrobe is revealed to have [[RealityEnsues caused massive credit card debt.]]
* Delenn in ''[[Series/BabylonFive Babylon 5]]'' had a same style costume in almost every episode, but almost every time with different colours.
** Justified in that, well, she's an ''ambassador'', supported by a government that has a vested interest in her making a good impression.
*** It doesn't need justifying. If you're paying attention, she's mix-and-matching the same dresses and over-dresses in differing combination, which do repeat. In fact the only dresses NOT seen more than once,[[spoiler: are the ones in the Flash Forward Episode at the end of the fourth season, and the ones from the DistantEpilogue.]]
*** Can't say I recall her wearing that LittleBlackDress from her first dinner with Sheridan ever again. Shame, that.
*** She was seen in two LBDs, both of which appeared only once. The first one did suit her a lot better. The second, strapless, LBD made her look very top heavy given her headbone.
* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]], Willow, Cordelia, Dawn, Tara, and Anya never wear the same outfit twice; and, with the exception of Willow's clothes in Seasons 1 and 2 (and early 3), were all very fashionable. Even when Willow was dorky-jumper-and-sweaters girl, they were ''different'' dorky jumpers and sweaters every episode.
** While it's true that they rarely repeat full outfits, if you pay close attention the characters will repeat articles of clothing. I do remember one repeated outfit though, Willow wore the same long pinkish dress in season 3 and 5; the cast also had limited coats that would be repeated several times.
*** In one or more episodes in season 6, Buffy had a fairly distinctive white blouse that she at least ''tried'' to wear more than once. Dawn, at some point, plays around with Buffy's clothes and gets pizza sauce on it, and Buffy is, in season 7, shown trying to get the stain out so she can wear it for what might be a date with Principal Wood.
** This point is mostly true, except that Tara's early outfits (on her first appearances in season 4) were not exactly fashionable (quirky is more like it). As with some other Buffyverse women, her fashion sense seems to improve apace with her self-confidence.
** Financial difficulties also don't seem to slow down these characters' clothes purchases, either, if Buffy in Seasons 6 and 7 [[spoiler:(after her mother's death)]] is any indication. Though Cordelia loses her family fortune, her wardrobe in later years stays varied, though less flashy and country club-like than in her high school days (one ''Series/{{Angel}}'' episode has her confessing to buying clothes from designer stores and returning them the next day).
* Maybe the ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' girls had a magic wardrobe-replenishing spell- they wore different clothes every. single. freaking. episode. Most of them, other than Holly Marie Comb's, were also of the extremely {{Fanservic|e}}y variety.
** This was also lampshaded in one episode, which had Alyssa Milano exclaim, "I'm going to go change--I've been wearing this outfit for almost an ''hour!''" You'd really have to be insane to raid Phoebe's closet, especially in the later seasons.
* London Tipton (played by Brenda Song) of Disney's ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' has never worn the same outfit twice, IIRC. Her hairstyles are equally varied. This makes sense, since she is absurdly rich and self-centered. What's kind of weird is that ALL of the people who don't wear suits have immense wardrobes, including the titular characters Zack and Cody, their mother, and their friend Maddie. None of these characters are particularly rich. In fact, it is somewhat frequently mentioned that Maddie is not that well off financially (despite attending a school that requires uniforms. Go figure).
** Disney Channel loves doing this in their live-action shows.
*** Of note is the limitless supply of eccentric and fanciful outfits worn by Alex Russo's best friend Harper Finkle in ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''.
* On ''UglyBetty'', the title character seems to have an unlimited supply of bizarrely dorky outfits, despite her lower-middle class background.
* ''Series/TheCarolBurnettShow'' had costumes designed by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Mackie Bob Mackie]]. He loved designing new clothes for sketches.
** Mackie also designed dresses for ''Music/{{Cher}}'' on her variety show(s). Not to mention all the various guest stars on both franchises. Some of the musicians guest starring (Bette Midler, Tina Turner, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Elton John]]) would then use Mackie on their tours. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLXmyJAQ7c0 Everybody loved Mackie]].
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' dances around this; though each character tends to wear a wide variety of clothing, a few of them have specific outfits they wear multiple times, like Mal's iconic brown and red shirts with suspenders, River's pink dress with white lace duster, and Book's priest outfit. On the other hand, Jayne, Inara, Wash, and Kaylee never seem to wear the same clothes twice.
** Watch carefully for repeating articles of clothing. For example, the top and veil that Inara wears in ''Trash'' is the same as what she wears in the flashback in ''Out of Gas''.
** And Kaylee has two distinct sets of coveralls (the green sleeveless one with the teddy-bear patch, and the grey boiler suit) which she wears with different T-shirts. She also undoes the top part and lets it hang around her waist when she isn't actively {{Wrench Wench}}ing.
** This show is notable for showing continuity between clothing. Mal's brown jacket is visibly repaired from where it was torn in the pilot, and the teddy-bear patch on Kaylee's coveralls is in the same place [[spoiler:that she was shot]] in the same episode.
* Mary Richards of ''TheMaryTylerMooreShow'' was sufficiently well-known for this that ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' made it the central focus of its parody, "The Mary Tailor-Made Show".
* This is parodied in an episode of BigWolfOnCampus in which Merton Dingle wears a different costume (After he decides that he, the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent main character]], and [[BadassNormal Lori Baxter]] are a superhero team) during each scene over the course of said episode. These costumes include a parody of [[Franchise/{{X-Men}} Professor Xavier]] and a pirate (complete with plastic parrot).
* ''DesperateHousewives''.
* In ''PushingDaisies'', it gets to the point where even Lily's ''[[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]]'' changes on a regular basis.
* Melinda Gordon of ''Series/GhostWhisperer'' hasn't worn the same too-fancy-for-upstate-New York-outfit twice.
* Subverted in ''{{Dollhouse}}'', as the episode "Needs" (1x08) has Echo and her fellow Actives stumbling into the Dollhouse's extremely full costume ''warehouse''. With tags identifying whom each article of perfectly tailored clothing is for, almost making this a parody at the same time.
** ''{{Dollhouse}}'' may be the only show to use the Unlimited Wardrobe ''and'' LimitedWardrobe tropes at the same time, given the ultra-standardized outfits (in the same few, muted colors) the dolls wear while in the Dollhouse and mindwiped.
* The only time any character from ''{{Friends}}'' wore a shirt a second time, was in a flashback-episode set two years in the past. Chandler wore a shirt he's already worn in season one.
** Chandler had a few bowling shirts and jumpers that he'd wear more than once (spanning several seasons). In earlier seasons, Joey would occasionally wear the same shirt as well.
** Phoebe wore a necklace with a metal daisy decoration a few times in the early seasons.
** Also, somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that Rachel works at Ralph Lauren and it wouldn't be too hard for her and her friends to keep up with current fashion.
** Somewhat averted at least in earlier seasons you'll occasionally see on of the gang wearing something they wore a episodes back.
* ''{{Roseanne}}'' does an excellent job of averting this, with characters repeating the same outfit several times a season. However, they did make the mistake of having those outfits include Guess Jeans for Becky and Doc Martens for Darlene and David, articles of clothing certainly beyond the means of the show's unemployed, blue-collar teens, so you can't win them all.
** The girls do get jobs at The Lunch Box once it enters the picture, and they wouldn't be the first teenagers to buy impractically-expensive clothing just for the name (people in a financial position like the Connors might have the occasional piece of designer clothing that they got for a birthday or Christmas.) It's also not exactly unheard-of to find designer clothing in excellent condition in thrift stores.
* ''GossipGirl's'' UES characters. Notable exception - Chuck's pajama... coat... thing.
* The characters of ''Series/{{Revenge}}''- justified for the most part since the show takes place in The Hamptons, which is made up of socialites and multi-millionaires (although working class party planner Ashley somehow manages to fit this trope as well). Notable exceptions are the townie characters Jack and Declan.
* All the ladies from ''{{Smallville}}'' despite Lana's frequent mention of a lack of money.
* In the first 3 seasons of ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', the opening sequence shows Sabrina in front of a mirror posing with four different costumes and outfits. The first three outfits are always the same, but the fourth one changes from episode to episode. At the end, Sabrina always says something that is related to the last costume.
* ''KyleXY''s female characters.
* Both Lorelai and Rory qualify for this on GilmoreGirls, though the costume department had the sense to have them wear some articles more than once...at least, for the first few seasons. In the later seasons, however, Rory is turned into a literal fashion plate and never seems to wear the same outfit twice.
* Fran from ''TheNanny'' constantly goes through several outfits in each episode. Justified in that she's a fashion nut and shopaholic. But also justified that her cousin is Todd Oldham, the well-known fashion designer. He's the one that gives her all these outfits (already wore by other celebrities) because "she can't dress that nice on her income." And she has an obscenely rich employer/[[spoiler:eventual husband]] that (usually) adores her.
** The [[http://www.amazon.com/Nanny-Christmas-Special-World-VHS/dp/6304139454 animated Christmas special]] (technically an episode of the live-action show) even has her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uX2OYsvRgjQ changing outfits]] several times.
* The Cylons on the re-imagined ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica| Reimagined}}'' seem to have an upscale fashion boutique on every basestar.
* Sort of averted on ''{{Glee}}''. The kids clearly have a lot of close, but upon closer inspection, they repeat outfits and clothing pieces fairly often. Sometimes, in a subtle CallBack, outfits from the first or second season will make reappearances much later in the season.
* Most female soap characters are rarely, if ever, seen wearing the same outfit twice.
* ''HannahMontana'' has the Hannah Closet, effectively a clothing store attached to a bedroom.
* The female leads in ''ShakeItUp'', especially noticable because of their...interesting sense of style.
* Roy of ''Series/TheITCrowd'' has a large number of amusing t-shirts, but still occasionally makes repeats. This is truth in television for many geeks.
* [[ANTFarm Madam]] [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Goo]] [[LadyGaga Goo]] has on a different crazy outfit on almost every time the camera is on her. Appropriately lampshaded.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Manhua]]
* The 60-70s Hong Kong {{Manhua}} ''Manhua/ThirteenDotCartoons'' has to be the queen of this trope: people have counted that the protagonist 13-Dot has donned 1,728 outfits in 28 issues, or an average of 62 per issue.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Christine Daae in both the stage and film versions of Andrew Lloyd Webber's adaptation of ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera''.
* Elisabeth in [[{{Elisabeth}} the musical of the same name]]. To be fair, this is a fairly accurate depiction of what she was like in real life, too. This happens to Death as well in the {{Takarazuka}} version, with a costume change for every scene.
* Nowadays, Music/LadyGaga is very rarely seen in an outfit more than once.
* EltonJohn's seemingly limitless supply of costumes, designer clothing, boots, eyeglasses, sunglasses, hats, shoes, etc. routinely comes up for auction to benefit his AIDS foundation and other charities. A portion of his glam-era wardrobe (including his [[UpToEleven infamous]] MinnieMouse and DonaldDuck costumes), at the time up for auction, can be found in the artwork for the 1988 album, ''Reg Strikes Back''.
* Steven Tyler of Music/{{Aerosmith}} has a vast wardrobe of showy outfits; he even admitted to occasionally wearing women's clothing!
* Music/LindseyStirling has a different outfit for every video, not even counting dressups, and sometimes appears with a variety of costumes within just one.
* Through the course of shows, Weird Al and his band change costumes about every four songs.
* A staple of Pop concerts, but Ayumi Hamasaki is probably the undisputed queen. She wore 14 outfits in a single concert once, most of her concerts feature 6-8 costume changes, every 2-3 songs. She once wore 3 outfits in a 3 minute medley.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: ProfessionalWrestling]]
* Macho Man Randy Savage wore a different outfit for every match in the tournament for the heavyweight title at Wrestlemania IV. Additionally, his valet Elizabeth had a matching outfit for each wardrobe change. In {{Kayfabe}} terms, he was AWFULLY confident he was going to win all his matches and was prepared...
* In general, Savage had one of the most varied wardrobes in wrestling. While most wrestlers have one or two variations of their signature ring gear (for branding reasions, wrestlers tend to stick to the LimitedWardrobe rule), he was known for having several dozen variations, and would update them when his ring persona changed (Macho Man to Macho Madness to Macho King, etc).
* Ric Flair famously has dozens of different robes to wear to the ring. He often would sport a new one for any really big match back in the 80s.
* Many of the Divas in WWE have a lot more ring attire options than that of their male counterparts.
* Rey Mysterio Jr. also breaks the LimitedWardrobe rule of wrestling, with dozen of outfits and masks, and always has a new ensemble for Wrestlemania. Justified in that his brand is being masked in general (not to mention that multiple masks = multiple merch items to sell).

[[folder:Sports Television]]
* Don Cherry of HockeyNightInCanada embodies this to a T.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* {{Franchise/Barbie}}
* {{Bratz}}
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Athena Asamiya from ''TheKingOfFighters'' has changed her outfit and hairstyle with every game she's been in. This is given a LampshadeHanging in ''KOF '98'', where her intro pose sees her psychically switch between all four of her previous outfits before settling on her current getup. It's even used in one of her [[LimitBreak DMs]], Psychic 9, where she changes outfits with every hit.
* In ''VideoGame/AliceMadnessReturns'', Alice gets a new dress for each level.
* Simon Belmont of ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' wears a different outfit in each interpretation of 1691, whether it be the classic golden armor and black hair in [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaI the NES original]], a similar attire but with blue hair in ''VideoGame/HauntedCastle'', the oddly-pink armor in the {{MSX}}2 game ''Vampire Killer'', the green outfit in ''VideoGame/SuperCastlevaniaIV'', or his black Conan-like armor and red hair in the Arrange Mode of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChronicles''.
* Since you can buy outfits online in ''[[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]'', this is actually justified.
* You can also buy outfits in the ''TokimekiMemorial'' Girls' Side games. With enough money your main character can go through the game without ever repeating an outfit. The guys you date also have lots of different clothes, though if you date them long enough they'll start repeating them.
* In ''SuperPaperMario'', [[PerkyFemaleMinion Mimi]] wears no less than ten different outfits over the course of the game; then again, she is shown to be filthy rich and obsessed with Rubees. And a ShapeShifter.
* In ''VideoGame/BarbieSuperModel'', there is a large number of different outfits for Barbie to wear. Since the game is pretty much about dressing up Barbie and making her a good model, this is a JustifiedTrope.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' doesn't do this to the same extent, but Bayonetta and Jeanne have customizable outfits the player can make them wear, and a few of them come in three different types, such as a Japanese kimono-style outfit. Bayonetta can even wear an outfit similar to Jeanne's.
* You could spend millions of rubies on dozens of shirts, pants, skirts, belts, and contact lenses to customize the main characters in ''{{Resonance of Fate}}''.
* LittleBigPlanet has many, many costume options for sackboys and girls. Glitches in the second game allow things like lights and Circuit Boards to be attached to the sackboy as well.
* VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall had such a bewildering variety of clothing that it encouraged this trope to the degree of a GuiltyPleasure for some. Characters could collect an unlimited wagonful of clothes, to wear a different outfit to every visit to court, every inn, every guild in every town. Daggerfall Fashion Gallery was the first mod, and was written to indulge fashion enthusiasts even more.
* With all the user-created content out there, it is very easy to turn your game of ''VideoGame/TheSims'' into this. There is a reason why it is listed under the VirtualPaperDoll trope.
* In Project Diva, Miku is shown to wear a bunch of different fancy, colorful, and very cosplayable outfits throughout the game.
* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' added three "Vanity Items" slots just to facilitate this. The slots replace the sprite (but not effect) or headgear, armor, and pants, just to show off all the clothes you've bought and/or made yourself while still being a walking Magitek tank.
* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', Sora has five different drive forms (six in Final Mix) and five Disney world-based forms (again, six in Final Mix). Oh, and his regular outfit. And that's not even taking outfits from ''other episodes of the franchise'' into account.
** However those are mostly just magical recolorings of his regular outfit. Otherwise Sora wears the same outfit in KH1 for every world that doesn't require a different form, continues with this same outfit for all of Chain of Memories, and starts out with it (visably smaller due to him having grown) in [=KH2=] at which point he is given the Drive outfit, which he uses for all of [=KH2=] (again minus worlds where he needs a disguise) and for his cameo in BBS. Finally he switches to a 3rd outfit for DDD.
* The ''NoMoreHeroes'' series has a ton of extra clothing items. The first game actually hid dozens of T-Shirts in dumpsters. It got more complex in the second game with a bunch of different shaped items, like baggy pants, visors, hoodies and other such things. And it was all really, really pointless. Heck, buying clothing in NMH1 actually cost nearly more than what you need for major upgrades and boss fees.
* While every class' clothing in ''RagnarokOnline'' is fixed and not affected by actual gear, the three head slots (hat, goggles/ear accessories and something covering or held in the mouth), ''do'' show. Hallmark of a successful player is the ownership of many, many hats, including the ones that are insanely hard to obtain and carry next to no actual usefulness. Additionally, some servers allow the recoloration of the basic outfit, with up to hundreds of options.
* On the topic of hats, ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', occasionally called "''Hat'' Fortress".
* In ''{{Tekken}}'' series, Yoshimitsu receives a new look in every game, seemingly becoming less human every time. The only exceptions are Tekken Tag Tournament and Street Fighter X Tekken which recycle his Tekken 3 outfit.
* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'' has Shii/Xie, a special quest giver whose outfit changes based on the holiday. The player can also invoke this if they own a lot of outfits. Changing outfits is an easy enough process that the player could [[ExaggeratedTrope change their outfit during a mission]] if they wanted to.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'': Wanda wears a different outfit in every battle.
* Mistress of ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'', best shown [[http://www.oglaf.com/emancipation/1/ here.]] {{NSFW}}.
* Dries in ''Webcomic/WhatTheFu'' takes this UpToEleven by wearing a different outfit on every page.
* ''LastRes0rt'' does this with most of its characters... at least, the ones who aren't [[InstitutionalApparel in prison]].
* ''{{Shiniez}}'': Ally has plunged huge amounts of her money into providing herself and her girls with enough fetish wear to show the readers more of the fashion every time they get into the clothes.
* Emily in ''Webcomic/TheSenkari'' tends to display a [[http://fav.me/d68xt2r rather varied wardrobe]]. Justified in that her family is rich.
* Jared in ''ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'' is not yet shown wearing the same t-shirt twice. WordOfGod is that Jared may be a slob, but he does have enough of a sense of personal hygiene to change his shirt regularly.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Deconstructed in {{Manwhores}} when Randy's constantly new, ever more extravagant outfits, starting with just a cowboy outfit and ending in full geisha regalia, before suddenly pushing the apartment crew into the BrokeEpisode.
* While clearly not to the extent of other examples on here and unless it's an arc, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick has a tendency to have a different outfit in every review while the [[SpearCounterpart Critic]] wears the same thing all the time.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Zuko of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has countless outfits during the series. Nevermind that he was living as a penniless peasant during the second season, [[http://dressup-avatar.deviantart.com/art/Zuko-s-Wardrobe-75039217 he still managed to rustle up a wardrobe that will put most fashionistas to shame]]. Ironically, once he got back to the royal court, ''that's'' where LimitedWardrobe kicked back in.
* Although it seems impossible, ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' combined this trope with LimitedWardrobe. Even though he was stranded in the future, a future where nobody remembered his home time, Jack managed to keep finding new kimonos to replace the ones subject to ClothingDamage in previous episodes... He must have found a ''very'' cheap clothing store on his first day there.
** There was episode dedicated to Jack losing his trademark sandals, and trying out new shoes given to him by the owner of a post-apocalyptic "Foot Locker" until he finds a kindly old Japanese man who makes him a new pair. The episode began with Jack making a new hat for himself out of straw. Given Jack's variety of skills, he probably knows how to make a new set of his simple robes with whatever materials he can find.
* Kimiko of ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' combined this with LimitedWardrobe. While she always wore the same outfit around the temple, outside she rarely has the same clothes... or hair colour.
* Similarly, while on the job the girls in ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' wear the same color-coded jumpsuits but in their "spare time" not only have a seemingly endless wardrobe, they love to go shopping as well. Apparently they have rich parents. And they do live in Beverly Hills, which in fiction never has anyone with less than upper class income.
* Anya in ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' doesn't have a different dress for every scene she's in, but she does go through far more costume changes than the average animated heroine (in order, she has a tattered peasant dress, a yellow ball gown in a dream sequence, a plain blue dress, a pair of blue pajamas, a purple flapper-esque dress, a blue dress similar to the purple flapper getup, yet another 20s-style dress [these last three all show up within the ''same musical number''], a tight-fitting purple evening gown with [[PrettyInMink fur coat]], a pair of midriff-baring pink pajamas, and finally a cream-yellow court dress). Most animated films give their female leads two, maybe three outfits at most!
* In ''The SuperMarioBrosSuperShow'', Bowser often had a different outfit depending on the theme of the episode (i.e. dressing like a cowboy in "Butch Mario and the Luigi Kid" and dressing like Julius Caesar in "The Great Gladiator Gig").
* The Music Meister from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' had a double-digit number of outfits during his episode, at one point changing clothes eight times during a single song.
* Ilana of ''SymbionicTitan'' can't seem to stay in one outfit for an episode. She's worn everything from flanel and daisy dukes, to an ElegantGothicLolita outfit. And it works too.
** Kimmy does this too. While she has the same cheerleading outfit, she is seen wearing different outfits throughout the show in other scenes.
* Many of Disney's female leads will inevitably have a huge number of outfits for them to wear, but only some of them end up in their debut films.
* Though everyone else seems to wear the same thing all the time, Marceline, the Vampire Queen from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' does not. Except for a non speaking background cameo, she has never worn the same outfit twice in all of her appearances. Princess Bubblegum also has a wide range of outfits, but not to Marceline's extent.
** Flame Princess seems to be joining them, as her "outfit"(She's made of fire) has been changing in her various appearance.
* In contrast to the rest of the cast, [=LaBarbre=] in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has a different [[MsFanservice sexy]] outfit every episode she appears, sometimes more than one.
* Mabel of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' seems to have an infinite amount of custom sweaters, and wears a different one every episode, and sometimes more than one in the same episode.
** Justified since Mabel knits the sweaters herself. Apparently she just owns a lot of yarn.
* During the fourth season, the ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' seems to have an outfit for every occasion. Even their Believix form had several custom versions for anything from flying quicker to teleporting to viewing the past . . . you get the idea. Not to mention Sophix and Lovix, which were forms designed for literally one story arc only each.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' halfway through the series all the characters started to wear different outfits
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' has Roger, who is constantly creating new disguises and personas. It even became a CouchGag in later seasons.
* PlayedWith in one episode of ''TheClevelandShow''--after Junior gets a large inheritance and begins spending it on the family, Roberta declares that her "new thing" is hats, and wears a different one each time she appears throughout the episode.
* Blythe Baxter in ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' has a different outfit in almost every episode. Part of the show focuses on clothing and fashion, and Blythe making clothes for the pets and herself. In Season 2, Blythe goes to a fashion university to study, so the new clothes in each episode are justified.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* This is TruthInTelevision. Some monarchs were known to have hundreds, even thousands of [[PimpedOutDress different outfits]].
** Sissi, the Austrian empress, was known to change her outfits up to three times '''in the same evening'''
** Her contemporary, Queen Emma of the Netherlands, prided herself on the Calvinist simplicity of her dress, but still found to her annoyance that she absolutely needed at least 40 dresses for the 5 day wedding celebration of her sister.
** Empress Elizabeth of Russia, who effectively made having an Unlimited Wardrobe necessary for court life by forbidding her nobles from wearing the same clothes twice to a ball (and since said balls were a near-daily occurrence...). At her death, she owned thousands of dresses, easily beating the more infamous MarieAntoinette.
** Imelda Marcos, wife of Filipino dictator Ferdinand Marcos, was particularly [[NeverLiveItDown notorious]] for owning over [[AllWomenLoveShoes 2,500 different pairs of shoes]].
* Lots of modern-day celebrities go through a similar process because designers give them clothes for free, since they get good publicity for it. Some of them end up doing massive charity sales of outfits that were only worn once.
* Major {{Fashion Magazine}}s have 'closets' stretching across several floors to hold all the clothes that are currently in season...
* Female hosts of the AcademyAwards sometimes demonstrate this within the show's three-odd hours, eg, Anne Hathaway in the 83rd show. It isn't just the Oscars, though; most award shows with a female host will have them change their outfit at least a couple of times. A particularly good example: In the late 90's, VH1 teamed up with ''Vogue'' to do the VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards, which was kinda like the Oscars, only instead of actors and directors, it was for models and designers. One year, they had HeatherLocklear hosting. Heather had it placed in her contract for hosting that she would get to keep any clothes she wore during the show-- then proceeded to change her outfit ''every single time she appeared on stage''.
* The Oregon Ducks college football team is known for its flashy uniforms, which allow for countless uniform combinations, many of which are only worn for a single game.
** The popularity of the Ducks' ever-changing uniforms (among both fans and potential high school recruits) has led more and more college teams to add a few alternate uniforms in addition to the standard "home" (colored jersey) and "away" (white jersey), though to date nobody has taken it to the "different uniform every game" extreme that Oregon uses.
* Tennis player [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2004507/Bethanie-Mattek-Sands-goes-Gaga-pre-Wimbledon-party-wacky-yellow-dress.html Bethanie Mattek-Sands]] has been described as the LadyGaga of the tennis world for her unusual fashion sense on the court. And off-court too.
* Both subverted and played straight with male dandies. While the late Duke of Windsor was said to have owned well over two hundred pairs of shoes alone (all handmade, of course), A.J. Drexel Biddle (Adjutant-General of Pennsylvania), who was described in 1960 as the best-dressed man in the US, owned a mere seven suits plus formal day wear (worn more frequently then than today).
