Clothes are a major category of items in the Animal Crossing series, as well as a major part of the games. 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 also take up both shirt and pants slots, while making coats top items to allow bottoms to be worn with them. Bags are also added as an accessory slot.

Like furniture, clothes are available from a variety of sources. In Animal Crossing, clothes are purchased at Tom Nook's Store, while in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk clothes may only be found at the Able Sisters' shop. Starting in 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 travelling salesman) being the only source of bags alongside becoming a supplementary source of footwear.

Some special clothes are 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.

In all Animal Crossing series games, players are able to create custom designs to wear as clothing through the Able Sisters' shop by asking Mabel for a price of 350 Bells per design made. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, players can now make pro designs for 500 bells by talking to Mabel to fit any style of shirt or dress; regular designs can only be worn as tees or as knit hats. Animal Crossing: New Horizons expands pro designs to all types of hat. Another way to get designs in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk is to help Wendell by giving him some food. He gives players a different design depending on what type of food he receives, some of which are exclusively obtained from him.
