In Elden Ring, sometimes looking good is more important than protection. For that, it's good to know which armor is best-looking.

Since Elden Ring features dozens of different armor sets, it can be difficult to find out which are the most stylish. The following list will make it easier for you to find the best-looking armor in Elden Ring.

10) Land of Reeds

The Land of Reeds Armor is the starting set of the Samurai class. This beautiful armor makes you look like a warrior of feudal Japan. The armor looks like plates joined together.
