An outfit is a set containing one or more items of clothes that is for a single person to wear. An outfit can have 1 item, such as a dress, or multiple items, such as shoulder pads, helmet, etc. Even if it has multiple items, we care about the set of items as a single unit, so we use the singular unless we mean multiple sets.
Put a simpler way: You'd buy multiple outfits if you had multiple people each needing to wear them. If just one person, then say outfit.
