Hopefully, in the future, our astronauts will wear some Mass Effect spacesuits to be able to stay in outer space for longer time spans. Maybe, someday, engineers will develop such cool spacesuits which will be worn by astronauts when we colonize Mars. We need to remember that these costumes from Mass Effect: Andromeda are spacesuits which are also uniforms.
Wearing a durable and suitable spacesuit might help astronauts explore planets by foot
A uniform’s goal is to show who you are, representing the person, his or her job and the place of origin. Uniforms need to be comfortable, but also easy to take off and to put on. They should be developed for specific body shapes to suit one perfectly. Moreover, these uniforms need to be developed from strong fibers which would protect the person from heat, cold and several other factors.
Mass Effect: Andromeda’s developers know how a uniform should look like and how it should work. The minor details from a uniform usually say a lot about the person wearing it. In this game, the human characters wear similar uniforms, but, nevertheless, they are not the same being distinguished by some small details. They are all working together, coming from the same organization.

However, they have different attributions to fulfill and have some distinctive features in their uniforms to be differentiated from the others. Maintaining the design elements and the color scheme, but introducing small little details indicates that The Andromeda Initiative is an organization which has a wide variety of roles, all working together to fulfill the same goal.
This organization represents people’s effort for colonization, being staffed by soldiers, explorers, and scientists. Each group has a special uniform. The basic uniform consists of a white jumpsuit with blue details on it. Ryder, who is a soldier, has a spacesuit with armored chest and shoulders. Another character who has a military background is Cora. Nevertheless, she is a biotic, having psychic powers and the ability to build psychic shields. Her armor is more flexible and lightweight.
Liam Kosta is bound to train civilians. Thus, his uniform consists of a pair of pants and a jacket, being different from those who wear a military uniform. The Andromeda Initiative is an organization which is about discovery, not about being built to kill aliens.
