Despite Sims 4 being out since 2014, the developers still haven’t implemented a way to change a Sims work outfit.
Even when your Sim has done well at work and earned a promotion, they can still sometimes be in their old garment from their previous work level.
Players of Sims 4 will dress up their Sims in everyday accessories such as jewellery and glasses but will see them removed when changing into a work outfit which makes no sense if your Sim is a common glasses wearer, they’ll need them to see on the job.
Not only that but some players have also seen their Sims be automatically changed into some ridiculous outfits.
Imagine your Sim who is a high-class lawyer being changed into a suit with slippers for shoes.
Now that’s not very professional and you wouldn’t be able to dress like that for work in the real world (unless you’re still in your comfy loungewear, home working).
Other careers that people have had issues with is the Detective career. The auto-assigned work outfit will be nothing like the career at hand and sometimes, that’s the fun in the job.
You’d want your detective looking like Sherlock Holmes, not just some everyday outfit of t-shirt and jeans.
It’s something small but fans of the game have been wanting to change work outfits since its release but seven years down the road, it still surprisingly isn’t included within the game.
Currently, the only way to change work outfits is through mods and cheats. Here are some of the best ones created for Sims 4.

How to change work outfit in Sims 4?
One option is changing your Sims work outfit through Create a Sim using a cheat.
First, enable Sims 4 cheats. To do this on PC or Mac, press CTRL + Shift + C all together, while in game. To access cheats on PS4 and Xbox One, press down all four triggers at the same time.
When the cheat box pops up, write in sims.modify_career_outfit_in_cas. This will change the work outfit for the Sim that is currently selected. You can keep using the cheat as much as it is needed to get the desired outfit.
Disclaimer: Some cheats may not work on Sims 4 for console.
Plan Career Outfit Mod
A mod has been created simply titled “Plan Career Outfit”. This mod adds a new interaction to all dressers, mirrors and closets in Sims 4.
This mod will open Create a Sim and give the player the option to pick out their own outfit for the next time they go to work so you can be as creative as your heart desires.
If you wish to install or get any additional details of the mod, they can be found here.
Having to change the work outfit through mods and cheats isn’t the simplest of ways to enhance your experience in game.
Here’s hoping that EA will hear the fans cry for help and implement the option automatically into the game soon. Or, at least into the next Sims title (if we get one anytime soon).
