You can see the various clothing options from the Apparel Tab in your Inventory.

To change out your clothing, look for the icon that resembles a Jacket in the top right-hand corner. If you select this icon, you’ll then be given a brief overview of all the various clothing items that you can change. This includes, jackets, hats, glasses, scarves, and so on down the list. To change any piece of clothing, select that piece and then choose a new one from the list of options. You can also purchase different clothing from the Apparel Store as well, though this will cost you real-world money.
