How to change Hogwarts Legacy gear appearance

In Hogwarts Legacy, players will be picking up new gear all the time, and this gear will come with a certain appearance. To change your gear appearance in the game, simply follow these steps:

  1. While in-game, head to the ‘Gear’ section of the menu.
  2. Hover over the section of clothing you wish to change the appearance of and press Square (PS) / X (Xbox).
  3. Select the appearance you wish for that particular piece of gear, or even make it invisible.
  4. Note that you can only change the appearance of your clothing while hovering over the initial gear menu screen, not while selecting individual pieces.

Players can also put their robe’s hood up by pressing Triangle (PS) / Y (Xbox), which is perfect for those who are going for a more ominous vibe.
