Unlike Hawke, all your Party Members have their own proprietary outfit of body armor that you can't change. You can however obtain upgrades for them, that offer different bonuses (like stat increases or rune slots). Each party member has four upgrades. Upgrades are found either in the various shops of Kirkwall, or discovered as loot during the many quests you'll undertake. Certain pieces can only be obtained during certain Acts of the game, however.

From the official Dragon Age II guide, here are the locations of all armor upgrades for all party members:
