In her early youth, Hungary was shown to wear a simple long tunic. She has only appeared this way in a few sketches so far, including one that depicts her being picked on by the younger Ottoman Empire (Turkey) and Mongolia. It is also shown that the type of weapon she used at the time was a bow.
In Prussia's diary segments, a slightly-older Hungary was shown, and believed herself to be a boy. She wore her hair tied back into a ponytail, and dressed in a more medieval style. She had also switched to using a sword as her weapon.

At some point later in time, Hungary realized that she was actually female and switched to wearing a dress instead of her more masculine clothes. She is shown this way in sketches that were done for the special edition booklet of Hetalia: Axis Powers volume 2.

In this design, she wears a dark-colored dress with an apron (which has a tricolored top and a white bottom), a necklace, and a headscarf with a flower on it. The design was somewhat recycled for Hungary's appearance in Episode 48 of the anime (while in the manga Hungary had worn her usual maid dress). In the episode, the dress is given a black bodice and an orange skirt, much like the color scheme used for her other dress in the anime.
