Fetish clothing includes any type of clothing and clothing materials which is commonly fetishized.

It is possible for almost any item of clothing to be the subject of a fetish. Commonly fetishized types of clothing include underwear, skin-tight clothing, and footwear.

Commonly fetishized materials include leather, fur, rubber, spandex and PVC.

Note that these materials are also commonly used in functional clothing, and that clothes made of these materials are not necessarily fetishitic in nature. However, this has also led to fetishization of functional clothing such as riding boots, diving suits and industrial clothing such as Hazmat suits and gas masks.

Many elements from fetish clothing have been adopted by mainstream fashion designers.

Common items of fetish clothing include catsuits, thigh-high boots and leather body harnesses.
