How to change your clothes in 'Pokémon Scarlet and Violet'?

Changing your clothes in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is pretty standard for what's seen in most turn-based RPGs with character customization. When not in battle or targeted by Pokémon players will need to press left on the D-pad to bring up the clothing menu.

This will bring up the player character and what outfits they can change into. At the start of the game players won't have much more than a few school uniforms but these options expand as players travel across the world of Paldea. These changes include everything down to shirts, socks, shoes, gloves, backpacks, hats, and sunglasses.

For the most part outfits can be bought or otherwise acquired during the player's adventures through Paldea. Hair customization on the other hand can only be done at salons the player will com across in game.
