Casual outfits started to become more prominent in Mass Effect 3, which introduced leather jackets and hoodies for Shepard to wear in place of the more standard military outfits provided in their casual armor options. This was carried over into the later release of Mass Effect: Andromeda as well, which similarly allows Ryder to wear everything from hoodies to tank tops. Shepard also dons either a dress or a suit for several missions in Mass Effect 2 and ME3's Citadel DLC.
The release of Mass Effect Legendary Edition brought ME3's casual outfits over into Mass Effect 2, as well, a choice that aligned with the remaster's goal of creating a more unified appearance for Shepard across the entire trilogy. Alongside this change came an overhauled character creation system, which brought Shepard's appearance in Mass Effect 1 more up to the standard seen in later Mass Effect games. Mass Effect Legendary Edition also introduced a few new customization options such as darker skin tones and improved hairstyles, as well.
Shepard has various casual outfits to choose from, each of which is fairly easy to recreate compared to their more iconic N7 armor as seen throughout much of the Mass Effect series. Many of Shepard's accessories can even be purchased through the BioWare store, making them easier to acquire for those fans who may not be able to make their own. The first outfits are composed of a simple grey t-shirt and black jeans, similar to what James Vega wears, and a black leather jacket or hoodie decorated with red N7 stripes. 153554b96e
