Here we have a full out list of armor mods. In the past Skyrim's armor modding was dominated by large overhauls and packs featuring hundreds of poorly optimized meshes, textures and pointless scrips that would clog up your save file and add armors that looked ugly as sin. Thanks to the advent of esl files the best modern practice is to download only the sets that interest you. There are still some overhauls that people use today, most notably Immersive Armors which has a much needed patch for it's poorly optimized meshes. Those overhauls won't be listed here but if you would like to use them they should work well enough with this guide.

Standalone Armors

NordwarUAThis dude has made a ton of armor packs and standalone armors. Very good for Nordic themed characters!
PulcharmsolisMy personal favorite armor modder. Creates armors inspired by Morrowind concept art. Really great and alien stuff. Some people think his models look a bit washed out though.

Fuse00Very high quality armors from this guy. A lot great male options!
KreisteThis guy makes some high quality Japanese MMO looking armors. He also makes a lot of slutty armors so if that's more your speed there's both male and female options for you!
XtudoThis guy has nearly 900 nexus pages. Half of them are texture optimizations and patches but he's also made nice mashups of armors too!
PrincessAriesMore recent armor modder with some cool looking mashups!
