Dragon Quest XI Costumes Guide: Locations of every costume for the 'Dedicated Follower of Fashion' trophy

The 'Dedicated Follower of Fashion' trophy is arguably the most time consuming of all of the ones available in Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. Not only are some costumes hidden away behind side quests, but many of them also have to be crafted on top of acquiring their recipes. 

Not only do the costumes alter the look of your party members, but they also offer some unique stats and bonuses, and the final costume for each party member effectively serves as their best gear. We've got them all listed out by character and show you how to acquire each and every one of them. Note that all cosmetic gear must be acquired to unlock the trophy, including armor sets that look the same, accessories, and upgrading the Trodain gear. 

In order to obtain the materials necessary to craft many of the game's costumes, you'll need a lot of gold on hand, so be sure to check out our guide on How to Earn Gold Quickly in Dragon Quest XI. Also be sure to check out the Best Weapons and Armor in Dragon Quest XI.

Note that this list will have spoilers for certain elements of the story in Dragon Quest XI.
