ESO Guide - Guide - Beginner - Outfit System

What is the Outfit System in the Elder Scrolls Online?
The Outfit System was added to the Elder Scrolls Online 2018 and is part of the base game, which means it is available for everyone. With the Outfit System you can create your own outfits with the styles and outfit styles you have learned. Like that you can change and customize the appearance of your equipped armor and weapons.
Where can I customize my Outfit?
To customize your Outfits you have visit any Outfit Station or Dye Stations of your choice. Outfit Stations are found in almost all major cities in the Elder Scrolls Online. Usually they are found close to other crafting stations.
Dye Stations have the same functionality as Outfit Stations
Is it possible to place Outfit Stations in player houses?
Yes, you can have your own Outfit Stations in your House. You can either buy a Dye Stations for 35 Writ Vouchers from Rolis Hlaalu or you can purchase an Outfit Station for 500 Writ Vouchers from Faustina Curio
You can also buy Oufit Stations/Dye stations in the Housing Crown Store.
You can also check the Guild Traders and purchase Outfit Stations or Dye Stations with Gold.
What do I need to create an Outfit?
To be able to create an Outfit you need to learn Style and Outfit Styles. Additionally you need to own some gold to pay the Application Fee.
How does that work with Styles and Outfit Styles?
To be able to create your own Outfit you need to learn Crafting Styles or Outfit Styles. Crafting Styles can be used to either craft gear or can be used via the Outfit System. And Outfit Styles are only usable via the Outfit System. If you learn any Style it will be added to your Collection and is account wide accessable inside the Outfit System. You can see what Styles you have unlocked when you go to your collections, and then click on Outfit Styles. You can also preview items which you don't have yet, and the tooltips give you hints where you can acquire that Style.
If you want to craft Gear you only use the Styles which your Character learned.
Do you have an Style overview?
ESO added over the years hundreds of Styles and Outfit Styles. I created many Showcase Videos and Guides how you can obtain them. Here you can find more information:
