Netz-à-porter – outfits ready to wear for your sims (no CC required)


In my opinion CAS is where The Sims 4 has made the biggest leap forward compared to the previous iterations. I have alot of fun making outfits and this is the place where I will post most of them from now on. Mainly because I always feel a bit awkward flooding threads with my CAS posts, when most people are interested in gameplay, but also because feedback has shown that there are a few forum members who appreciate a bit of inspiration. I use the pictures myself when I want to make a quick (townie!) makeover, so I think this is probably where this thread can come in useful for others.

Custom Content
We as a community know that we are blessed with some of the most creative and talented creators of custom content and mods in the world of video games. While I use a moderate amount of Maxis Match CC in my game, I will avoid CC in this thread for the most part with some exceptions:
- Poses: Unfortunately this is something CAS does not provide and the animations can become repetitive. Most of them are made by Flower Chamber and Ms Blue. I do not make poses myself
- Skin replacement: I have one default skin replacement, which is Smootish II by Luumia. I do not use any other overlays etc
- Lipsticks: Make-up is a passion of mine IRL and while I think we are pretty good regarding eyeshadows („More is better!“ – said every simmer ever), I need more lipsticks in my game

I will not be doing a lot of picture editing, as I would like to spend most of my time in CAS. The thread’s purpose is to help with outfits, perhaps an extension of the ‚Styled Looks‘ section in CAS, if you will. Also, I will be doing throwbacks to older packs and posts focussing on outfit categories.

I hope you'll find something you like!

    If you're like me, you like to get out of your street clothes when you get home. And if you are not like me, you slip into a purple negligee or a satin morning gown. :D Anyway, here are some ideas for home /sleep wear for your sims that are casual and comfy. If you like some of these for your sims, remember to remove the "sleep" outfit category tag to find all the items.

    Focus: Homewear

    Lovely idea for a thread, and you have a great dress sense. I shall follow with interest :)

    This is lovely. At this point there are so many options in CAS that I can get overwhelmed trying to figure out what pieces will work together. Having some inspiration going in could be very helpful. Especially for my stylist sim who just gained the ability to make other sims over.

    The Spooky Stuff pack is one of those controversial packs that is frequently mentioned as being one of the worst packs for TS4. It is limited in scope, of course, but that is a bit like saying that a raincoat is useless in sunny weather - it is useful for what it was made for. Anyway, I have to confess that I mainly got the pack for the gladiator sandals. I still love 'em and like to bring them back into focus. I had posted the 4 outifts in the top row before, but the others are new. The gladiator sandals are great for hot weather outfits and party wear.

    While dressing males in CAS, I often struggle with variety. I think it's because I have some favourite pieces that I think look good on all my hunks. :D But I did my best and I hope it shows, so without further ado, let's hear it for the boys!

    I love this thread so much. I like to see how other people use CAS - I have a few fave outfits / pieces that I use way too much, so it's great to get some inspiration from others :)

    so glad you've started a thread for this!

    -signed 'a person who has taken inspiration from, and blatantly borrowed, some of your outfits posted in every other thread you'd posted them in to help townies look better'
  • NetzspannungNetzspannung Posts: 1,200 Member
    @kalaksed I always appreciate your feedback! This thread will be a good outlet for me and also everything is in one place in case of a townie fashion emergency. :D

    Oh thank you for doing this. I just had a sim purchase a dress shop for a story I'm playing out .. and I need all the inspiration I can get :). I don't plan on running the shop .. just having it accessible for my sims to shop at.

    Believe it not I came to the forums just now and looked you up to try to find screenshots and here is this thread.
    Would you consider posting some of your old goodies here?

    @Hermitgirl Thank you for stopping by! I hope this thread will help you out. As a matter of fact, I was planning to post some "oldies" later today #TBT.

    For Throwback Thursday I want to look at the Bowling Night Stuff pack. I have very fond memories of when the pack dropped. I acted like a madwoman on the forum and posted way too many pictures. Also, I used the word 'swatches' in every other sentence. Some people were certainly annoyed. But I am sure they forgot about that shortly after and I can still remember the good time I had. :D

    The pack has a lot of good qualities, but I mainly like it for adding two of the most versatile female tops in the game. The picture below is only to show how the many different swatches allow for the same top to be styled sweet and casual or dramatic and elegant. That's why I was so excited about the swatches!

    Focus: Bowling Night Stuff pack

    Here are some outfits, some old, some new. Obviously because this is an older pack, some of them may not be surprising, but I swear that polka dot top and poodle skirt combination is the cutest thing I've seen all day!

    The pack also added enough pieces to make totally rad rockabilly sims!

    Who's that girl?

    Since Sunday rhymes with Funday (technically so does Monday, but that's tomorrow's problem), I thought I would create a little "game" with these Basegame only outfits. I made up categories before I went into CAS and tried to create outfits with a specific theme. Under the spoiler below you will find the categories, if you want to guess for yourself.

    Focus: Base Game Female CAS

    F0Pf3K2.jpg
    1. Senior Vice President of Midwest Regional Operations (also would have accepted: Career / Business Woman)
    2. Librarian / Office Girl
    3. Tomboy / Sporty Girl
    4. It-Girl (also would have accepted: Footballer's Wife)
    5. Quirky Girl / Nerdy Girl
    6. Party Girl (also would have accepted: 'Going out dancing with the girls' Girl
    7. Country Girl / Small Town Girl
    8. Banker's wife (also would have accepted: WASP)

    These outfits could be useful if you want your townies to look less generic or like they have a backstory.

    For Throwback Thursday I wanted to look back at the outfits I made with the fancy pants with the floral pattern that came with City Living. The pattern is so flashy and unlike anything I would wear IRL, that I thought I would never come up with a nice combo. But one afternoon I set my mind to it, and I still use these outfits for everyday and party wear and enjoy how well these pants are made; the texture is lovely and they look like something you would buy at a high fashion boutique.

    that's all pretty much exactly what i thought when i first saw them. i've tried several times to use them in different outfits, but nothing really worked for me. and here you go making it look so easy to do...

    (also, the blonde model sim of yours makes me think of a young nancy landgraab since i gave her exactly that hairstyle when the pack it was in came out...she now actually looks 'mobwife' (even though she's the mobster of the family) instead of 'soccer mom' with it)
  • NetzspannungNetzspannung Posts: 1,200 Member
    @kalaksed It makes me really happy to know that people may use a CAS item more after they've seen an outfit here. It means that - in a small way - I helped them get a little bit more out of a pack they paid good money for. At the end of the day I feel that's what the forum is about - helping each other to get the most out of the game.

    (Ha! I think Nancy may even look good in a couple of these outfits. And the blonde Sim is also in the Criminal career in my game. I guess they just have that look ...)

    So, since I am not a big fan of floral patterns ... let's do more floral patterns! These outfits work for everyday (nice for a casual lunch date) and hot weather outfits. I am currently using the first one as a hot weather outfit on a Sim I'm playing and it makes me happy every time she wears it! One of the skirts is Base Game the other one is from Romantic Garden.

    I really like earth tones in clothing and I think there is some good stuff in CAS to make outfits in that palette, so the theme for this post is 'The City is a Jungle'. Also, I used a lot of items from Jungle Adventure and it is combination of old and new outfits. So here are some casual outfits for the everyday or hot weather category.

    Focus: Casual wear in earth tones

    Also, since I missed Throwback Thursday yesterday, I am going to post this set of outfits I made when Jungle Adventure first came out. I still think they look adorable just as they are.

    Love this thread!

    A long time ago, before the world was full of Fashion Bloggers and Influencers, fashion scouts spotted new styles on the streets of big cities like New York, Berlin, Paris, Tokio etc and brought promising styles to the big labels. I guess scouts still exist, but mainly check out Pinterest now. Anyway, Street Style is mostly combining clothing in new and unexpected ways that make you think "Wait ...what? No! Well, I guess ...huh, this is actually pretty cute - I love it!" So very confusing and exciting. This is hard to do in The Sims without CC, because we are missing many styles of shoes and glasses and also have no handbags. I tried to make some outfits you would see on the streets. I hope you either like some of these or at least are inspired to make some better outfits. :D

    Focus: Street Style

    Sometimes I just love how bright and lovely you can make things look in TS4. So for Throwback Thursday I dug up some of the brighter outfits, for when the day seems too grey.

    Focus: Pastel Passion
