How to Use the Outfit Management system.
If you are using SKSE and SkyUI then you are in luck !
Anna NPC’s now has a Outfit management system that can be enabled through the SkyUI Mod Configuration Menu.
Once the Outfit Management is enabled for a specific follower the options become available in the dialogue tree.
First!! it is important to know not to use the outfit inventories as storage.
Only put items in there you want them to wear.
If you want the follower to carry loot and items for you then use the Carry Bag option. “Would you carry this in your bag?”
The Outfit Management options are available under the topic:
“Let’s talk about your clothes.”
Available options are:
“About your weapons and armor.” (All)
“About your casual clothes.” (All)
“About your fancy clothes.” (All)
“About your sleep wear.” (All)
“About your underwear.” (All)
“About your mage clothes.” (Anduniel, Valyen)
“About your thieves armor.” (Anduniel, Darion, Mareen)
“About your imperial armor.” (Elyndra)
“About your companions armor.” (Nadina)
“About your daedric armor.” (Teryn)
“About your Dibella robes.” (Zorya)
Now what do these inventories do?
Well there are a few options.
If you keep the default option (recommended) “You can wear what you like.” they will then automatically change outfits depending on where they are and if they are in combat or not. Below is a list what they will wear and where.

Option “Wear your xxxxx outfit/armor please”
♦ They will then equip that outfit and only change to their armor when combat is beginning and change back when combat has ended.
♦ Except for the Imperial, Thieves, Companions and Deadric options. (Because those are armor)
♦ They will not automatically change to casual, fancy, sleep or swim outfits.
I can’t get them to change outfits. I can access their outfits and add things. Then when I return to game I get the pop-up telling me that outfits has been updated. But when I tell them to wear the outfit there is no change. I went to the MCM and took them off outfit management and then back to add it again, still no dice.
