Unfortunately, you cannot change out of your Academy Uniform. You can only switch between Uniforms that go along with the different seasons. That said, you can at least change your Accessories, including Bags, Hats, Shoes, Socks, and Glasses. Simply look for the Fashion Streets in Mesagoza, Cascarrafa, and Levincia. At the stores found here, you can purchase additional accessories that allow you to play around with your character’s style a bit more, despite the restrictions.
