What's up with all the boys showing up with dresses on?
I'm not talking about NPCs. I'm talking about characters in my households, that I dressed, but are suddenly wandering around wearing something completely different that does not fit their character.
I'm playing a different household, and suddenly see a little boy from one of my other households wander around wearing a dress that I never put on them. I think, "I didn't put that on him." Then I see another little boy doing it, and then a toddler boy in a dress. (No grown men though, just kids.)
Why don't they wear the clothes I assigned to them?
At first I thought it was a bug related to the mod that lets kids do magic, because I thought it was only happening in the magic world. But lately I noticed they're showing up like that in other worlds too.
BTW, when I check CAS to see if they're supposed to be wearing a dress, I see that they do not have one assigned to them. The game just puts it on. It's been doing that for about 2-3 weeks.
Since I noticed all the boys in dresses, I started noticing other characters in things I don't remember assigning to them too, but didn't really notice it before the majority of my little boys started wearing dresses when I wasn't playing them.

I didn't know there was a mod for stopping the clothing changes.
I have used MCCC to change work outfits. (One of my daughter's werefoxes started showing up for work naked one day, probably due to a cc outfit being deleted. So we changed her "work outfit".) I might have to look into that if it gets annoying. It's a little jarring, especially if it doesn't fit the character; but my daughter thinks it's hilarious.
What "situational outfits " do they have for kids though? (I know kids wear school uniforms for school in Komorebi, which makes sense. I can't imagine any other situations for them to change their clothes though.)
Speaking of kids in school uniforms, I'm gonna have to check to see if I can assign school uniforms to children in certain households outside Komorebi! I do have a couple households that would send their kids to private schools.
The Magic realm does indeed generate Situational outfits. Sometimes they're actually cooler than anything I put on the sim... most of the time they're as eye-searing as any other random outfit.
Kids can sometimes wear costumes if you have Seasons and a holiday with the Wear Costumes tradition. I have both Halloween and Summer Geek Con as Costume Wearing holidays, and I'll see mostly kids and teens wearing costumes throughout the worlds. If you happen to have Spooky Stuff, one of the costumes in there is a princess dress.

What lots does this happen on? Anything going on in neighborhood terrain like a fair or festival?
Do you have any mods?
Any CC dresses that might have incorrect tagging?
I see a lot of children there in my game because I added a mod that lets children do magic. Ever since I added the mod, kids have started showing up at the Magic Realm to practice their spells and stuff. (I'm also seeing unsupervised toddlers popping in, and sitting around by the portal.)
The kids used to just show up in the regular clothes that I assigned to them though, but a few weeks ago they started wearing clothing I didn't assign to them. The dresses were most noticeable though, because we're seeing dresses on little boys that are rowdy little ruffians that would never be caught dead in a pretty dress. For example, we're playing a monster world now, and one household is the mother and child ghost from Ju-On. So one day we saw the creepy little kid from Ju-On walking around in a frilly dress. That was hilarious!
This! Very much this! I would love for my sims in Mt Komorebi to wear kimonos and my Sulani sims wearing the clothes typical for that pack - when they are THERE!
I also wish there was a way to limit traits in the same way. No, you are not an islander, you will not have the "child of the islands" trait!
aaand also yes my vampires especially are big fans of Sulani brand always with them skirts
She's on console so no mods or cc.

I detest situation outfits. So many times I rotate to a new household to find a sim dressed in something completely ridiculous. I do not spend time lovingly creating them stylish attire only to see them around wearing something that nobody on Earth would choose to wear.
Could that be caused by CC?
Nah. I don't have any CC at all, and have always had this issue. The situational outfits for the City Living festivals are the worst.

One of my households was living next to Salim Benali, and one day he was hanging out wearing a maid's uniform like Bonehilda. Does he normally do that? Or was this another example of the game randomly putting a dress on a guy that doesn't have one in his wardrobe?
CL apartment dwellers showing up in a maid outfit or towel is tied to them having had a "door with hearts" woohoo-related event at their own apartment. It can happen with any apartment neighbor sim. It's like the "door with loud music notes" event where you get to complain to them about their noise, because you can complain about the hearts too.
