The latest version of Minecraft Java Edition (Snapshot 23SW04A) introduces a new feature called Armor Trims, which allows players to customize and enhance the appearance of their characters with unique designs. Due to the parity between Minecraft Java Edition and the former standalone Bedrock Edition, we expect the new feature to soon be available within the beta program as well.

Below, we’ll take a comprehensive look at the new Minecraft feature, as well as the types of armor trims you can obtain. 

Minecraft Armor trims

The Armor Trims in Minecraft Java Edition are a new cosmetic feature that can be applied to armor by using a Smithing Template. The design of the trims is based on the biome or structure where the Smithing Template was found. The following is a list of the available Armor Trims and where they can be found:

How to use the new armor trim feature

New armor trims in Minecraft 1.20

To use Armor Trims, you will need to have a Smithing Table. When interacting with the Smithing Table, you will notice that there is a new slot. To apply the trim, first place the Smithing Template in the new slot, then add the piece of armor you wish to modify. As stated above, the Smithing Templates are scattered around each dimension and reality, and you’ll need to explore all sorts of ancient structures to find them. 

Finally, insert a material from the following list to determine the color of the trim: 

  • Iron
  • Copper
  • Gold
  • Lapis
  • Emerald
  • Diamond
  • Netherite
  • Redstone
  • Amethyst
  • Quartz

Once you’re done, you’ll be able to remove your upgraded armor from the Smithing Table. All you need to do now is equip your shiny new armor or put it on an armor stand to brag about your riches. 

Update on Minecraft 1.20

As we reported last year, Minecraft 1.20 is expected to arrive sometime during the first quarter of 2023. We initially expected it to release in January, but it seems there might be some progress to go before we get to see a finished update. However, what’s pleasant to see this time around is that Mojang is sticking to the idea of developing the update with the community’s input

If you haven’t yet tested any of the Minecraft 1.20 snapshots or beta releases, try them out. The new features added so far bring a lot more variation and opportunity into the game. And, with the new armor trims, there’s a way to stand out and be recognizable on multiplayer servers, without having to remove your armor.

I hail from the awe-inspiring beauty of South Africa. Born and raised in Pretoria, I've always had a deep interest in local history, particularly conflicts, architecture, and our country's rich past of being a plaything for European aristocracy. 'Tis an attempt at humor. My interest in history has since translated into hours at a time researching everything from the many reasons the Titanic sank (really, it's a wonder she ever left Belfast) to why Minecraft is such a feat of human technological accomplishment. I am an avid video gamer (Sims 4 definitely counts as video gaming, I checked) and particularly enjoy playing the part of a relatively benign overlord in Minecraft. I enjoy the diverse experiences gaming offers the player. Within the space of a few hours, a player can go from having a career as an interior decorator in Sims, to training as an archer under Niruin in Skyrim. I believe video games have so much more to teach humanity about community, kindness, and loyalty, and I enjoy the opportunity to bring concepts of the like into literary pieces.
