The answer to that question is fairly simple. All you need to do is continue to advance the main questline. Progress the main storyline until you get the quest The Room of Requirements. As the name of this quest suggests, you will go to The Room of Requirement. Inside the room there is the Desk of Description. This piece of furniture can be used to identify any hidden magical properties of the clothing you carry.

To use the desk to identify your gear simply approach it. If you have any unidentified gear pieces on your character you will be prompted to identify them. Hold the prompted button until the gear is identified and added to your inventory.
