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 I just posted an outfit you like, I have good news - there is more where that came from!

    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.

    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'

    @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?

    Put 'em together and what have you got?

    @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.

    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

    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.

    Girl your outfits shine ✨👏
  • kalaksedkalaksed Posts: 2,442 Member
    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: 1,454 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 ...)

    I love florals. And these combos are all so cute. 🥰
    If you focus on all that is awful you will miss all that is wonderful.

    Love the waterfall jacket! Long cardigans are just socially acceptable capes.

    Haven't been able to sit down and play for a week but can't watch to get back in game and give my simmies some fresh new looks. 😊
