->''I won't require high-ranking female members of my organization to wear a stainless-steel bustier. Morale is better with a more casual dress-code. Similarly, outfits made entirely from black leather will be reserved for formal occasions.''
-->-- EvilOverlordList item #33.

Evil quite often has a different style compared to heroes and bystanders. Perhaps it's a way to tell the heroes and villains apart, perhaps it's because the artists and costumers think EvilIsCool, [[EvilIsSexy Sexy]], [[WickedCultured cultured]], or perhaps a little bit of all of them.

Regardless, these tropes involve fashion choices villains make (intentionally or otherwise).

Also, some of the more extreme {{Anti Hero}}es are likely to follow these tropes.
