I have seen old and outdated threads saying that depending on what a Sim wears, this will affect the mood of that sim. Is this true in a vanilla base game with no mods? I'm aware that some clothes, like the Animal Hats content, will affect the mood of a Sim, but do normal clothes affect a mood? I like designing my Sims uniquely and don't want to use a same-color shirt to make a Sim happier. Is it true that the type or texture of clothes affect the Sim in any way?

I am NOT part of anything in EA and I'm just a player. I try my best to answer questions in the Sims forums, and showing info about the Sims, even posting answers and thoughts of feedback! I have been playing the Sims 4 for 2 years.
Though there are rare exceptions when it does. Like the animal hats you've brought out (and the other Digital Deluxe clothing). The firefighter uniform will make sims confident while Tragic Clown uniform will make sims sad. Badly made knitted clothing will make sims uncomfortable.
Oh, and with High School Year bringing fashion likes and dislikes will have sims be happy or tense on their or other sims' clothing style.
Now that is full on no.
I did wonder whether favourite colour would make a difference once they brought in likes and dislikes, but no such luck.
I've had some of my sims wear summer outfits in their Cold Weather & some sims wear long leave outfits in their Hot Weather.
It doesn't really matter.
I also think that they can have a negative reaction to a style they dislike when it's worn by another sim nearby, but I'm not 100% sure. I don't often play with fashion preferences myself.
It's not the cloth itself that matters, but what clothing category your sim wears. If you edit Cold weather outfit in CAS and ignore tags to use only Summer options, the game will still see it as a Winter outfit regardless of what it contains. So, it's totally possible wearing a bikini during a snow storm without freezing at all.
I could be wrong though.
