In order to change appearance, you’ll need to go to your room. Once you’re there, interact with the item box across the room from the entrance. You’ll see the option to change appearance all the way down, at the bottom of the menu. Choose that, then look for another one with the same text. Choose that one, and you’ll see a screen that will allow you to change your hairstyle, eyebrows, facial hair, makeup and clothing. That’s the full extent of the changes available to you after the initial character creation.

The other characters won’t treat you any differently based on which one you pick, so it pretty much comes down to your preference. The only real differences are between male and female versions of armor, which have different cuts.
