Although it is not possible to alter the shape of your armor in the game, you can change the color of your gear in Baldur’s Gate 3 by using dyes. With that said, after acquiring a dye, you will be able to change the color of armor and cloth pieces by first right-clicking on the flask and then selecting Combine, which will open the Combine Items tab.

Once the window appears, just drag your gear of choice to the blank square on the right and then select Combine to dye it, which will automatically transport the newly dyed item to your inventory.
