Apparel are different types of garments or body gear found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Apparel can be divided in categories:
The maximum amount of apparel that can be worn is seven items: head, body, feet, hands, fingers, neck and an equiped shield. Items can be obtained at blacksmiths, shops, as leveled loot found during exploration and also as quests rewards.
Apart from the cosmetic and aesthetic value, most apparel items (that are not already enchanted) can be enchanted at an Arcane Enchanter. A variety of useful enchantments can be applied (e.g. Fortify Skill, Resist Magic).
Apparel is abundant in Skyrim, and may be acquired through a variety of means. Most General Goods Merchants sell a limited range of apparel and jewelry. Many NPC's have apparel, some unique, that can be looted from their corpse, and apparel can be found all over Skyrim, in various locations. Chests, wardrobes, and dressers also may contain such items.
