Clothing is a major category of items in the Animal Crossing series consisting of various items such as tops, bottoms, headwear, accessories, shoes, and socks that the player can wear to customize their appearance. In Animal Crossing, only the pattern on players' clothes are changeable: males always wear a shirt with gray shorts and females always wear a dress. The shirt or dress design also appears on the character's hat. Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk introduce hats and facial accessories, making clothing only one of several ways to change the appearance of one's character. In City Folk, the character can also change the color of their shoes by getting them shined by Kicks. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, pants, socks, and shoes are customizable clothing slots, and the option becomes available to wear dresses or coats that take up both the tops and bottoms slots. Additionally, all categories of clothes have multiple styles: Tops can be sleeveless tanks, short-sleeved tees, and long sleeves; bottoms come in long pants, shorts, and skirts; socks have long and short varieties, as well as various forms of tights and leggings; and shoes come in the form of sandals, sneakers, boots, and long boots. Animal Crossing: New Horizons introduces bodysuits that take up both top and bottoms slots, while making long coats top items to allow bottoms to be worn with them. Bags are also added as an accessory slot.

Like furniture, clothing is available from a variety of sources. In Animal Crossing, clothes are purchased at Tom Nook's Store, while in Wild World and City Folk clothes may only be found at the Able Sisters' shop. Starting in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the Able Sisters also sell accessories; Labelle sells hats and facial accessories originally, while Kicks owns a self-titled store for socks and shoes. Footwear becomes part of the regular Able Sisters collection in New Horizons, with Kicks (as a traveling salesman) being the only source of bags alongside becoming a supplementary source of footwear.

Some special clothing is also available via holidays and events such as Gracie's visits in Animal Crossing or New Year's in City Folk. In City Folk, some clothing articles are only obtainable from GracieGrace at very high prices or from the Tom Nook Point System. Additionally, some items from the Able Sisters is only available during certain seasons of the year.

In all Animal Crossing series games, players are able to create custom designs to wear as clothing. Prior to New Leaf, custom designs can only be created at the Able Sisters by talking to Mabel and paying 99k Bells NH Inv Icon cropped.png 350 Bells per design. Beginning in New Leaf, players can make PRO designs for 99k Bells NH Inv Icon cropped.png 500 Bells by talking to Mabel to fit any style of top or dress; regular designs can only be worn as t-shirts or hats. New Horizons expands pro designs to all types of hats. Another way to get designs in Wild World and City Folk is to help Wendell by giving him fish to eat. He gives players a different design depending on what type of food he receives, some of which are exclusively obtained from him.
