How characters dress

Harry Potter in his uniform and characteristic round glasses and Dan Brown's Prof Langdon sporting a tweed, definitely academic style, jacket are two memorably dressed fictional characters.  Who can forget the piercings and tattoos and punk-goth outfits of Larsson's Lisbeth Salander and now Jack Reacher and his throw away clothes. What a character dresses in is what's hot now.
