Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/TheMusicVideoShow'' has a bit of this. Every season of the show (which are 25 episodes long), the host new clothing worn. This may be an aversion since [[spoiler:there are multiple versions of him throughout the seasons]]. This is especially evident in the first season when he has changed into multiple shirts and hats (or no hat), which is [[Main/LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in [[Main/MilestoneCelebration the 100th episode.]]


* 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. In general, the titular robots tend to change bodies every few years. Megatron is especially guilty of this.

*** And sometimes she manages to have the perfect costume for a given card designed, sewn up, and ''on hand'' the moment she learns that card in question exists.


* 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. This is in stark contrast to her brother's LimitedWardrobe.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' was created to sell fashion dolls so this is extremely apparent. It's right there in the theme song: "''Glammer and glitter, fashion and fame''". There are even [[http://www.rockjem.com/cartoonfashions.html fansites]] dedicated to cataloging every-ones attire. The only thing that really stays consistent is their make-up. We only see a Misfit without it once: Roxy briefly during a makeover montage in "Roxy Rumbles". The hairstyles are usually stationary but do occasionally change, like when Kimber had her hair in pigtails during the song "Bad Influence". It's unintentional however several characters did change hairstyles due to EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference. Video had straight hair but later has wavy hair, and Clash had red-and-blue hair until they {{retcon}}ned her into having purple hair like her doll.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Most of the noble ladies of the show have an ever changing wardrobe, with Margaery's being the most prominent example (to the point that, when stopping to help the poor for PR purposes, she ironically doesn't even bother to protect her expensive dress from dragging through the mud because she has so many others).

** Daenerys has the most varied outfits of all the actresses on the show, partly on account of her blending in with different people's cultures. She's worn the silks of the Free Cities, Dothraki garb, Qartheen dresses, styles of her own making, and even some exotic furs.

Added DiffLines:

* Parodied in ''[[Literature/AuntieMame Around the World with Auntie Mame]]'', when Mame must take Vera's place in a Folies-Bergere production based loosely on the life of Catherine the Great. Mame expresses concerns over the substitution (namely that she hasn't so much as read the script), but Vera insists that Mame can get by if she can change costumes quickly enough and sigh "oh, mon amour." True to Vera's word, the show isn't much more than an excuse to show off the outfits - which include a dress made of seed pearls and chinchilla fur, a wig that's four feet tall, a sable coat, a bikini made from netting and jet beads, and six live Russian wolfhounds.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/FromTheNewWorld'' is another example. The main characters' clothes are surprisingly diverse.


* Becky of ''Manga/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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'': WholesomeCrossdresser Tip wears a new set of highly fashionable women's clothing in every arc with no repeats.


* Delenn in ''Series/BabylonFive'' has a same-style costume in almost every episode, but almost every time with different colors.
** 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).

episode.



* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'': Despite the gang supposedly being poor all the time, Mac, Dee and Dennis all wear different outfits in each episode, though Mac does rewear one or two T-shirts. The trope is averted for Charlie, who only has about three outfits through most of the early seasons that were taken directly from Charlie Day's wardrobe.

* {{Bratz}}{{Bratz}} has many different clothes for the girls.
* ''Toys/MrPotatoHead'': Both the Mr. and Mrs. have many different outfits to pack in their plastic selves, and that's before including the crossover outfits.

* PlayedWith in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/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.



* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', Star Butterfly has 5 outfits she's worn in multiple episodes, with a 6th being added for season 3, plus over a dozen that she's only been seen in once. That's not counting the times she modifies one of the main outfits, like wearing a T-shirt or [[ShipTease Marco's hoodie]] over her dress.
