More than a life simulation, The Sims 4 is your blank canvas for creativity. The game allows players to create multiple Sims with unique appearances and traits, with nearly every aspect of their looks and bodies customizable.
The ability to shape body forms, adjust height with a gentle touch, and even experiment with facial hair sets the stage for an infinite playground of possibilities. As you progress in the game, you become the architect of dreams, designing hairstyles, clothing, makeup, and overall aesthetics for the Sims. However, over time, you may feel the need to change their appearance. Fear not, here is your guide to learn how to do it.
How To Change Your Sim's Clothing With A Mirror/Dresser
For players who desire minor changes such as clothing or accessories, they can easily do so from the comfort of their home with their Sim!
Simply go to a mirror or dresser and select the "Change Sim" option to switch between previously created outfits or choose the "Plan Outfits" option to enter the CAS (Create-A-Sim) mode, albeit in a limited version.
How To Fully Change A Sim's Appearance
The easiest and most common way to change the appearance of your Sims is through the Create-A-Sim (CAS) mode. With this mode, you can edit every aspect of your Sims' appearance, such as height, body shape, skin color, hair or eye color, as well as traits and life goals.
By default, this comprehensive editing mode is only available when creating a brand new Sim from scratch. This means that after creating and starting the game with a Sim, it will not be possible to access the CAS mode.
If you want to edit the physical aspects of your Sims as well as their age, you will need to use this cheat to unlock all features of the CAS.
Nevertheless, there is always a way, and this case is no exception. You can use cheats on any device to access the CAS mode and change what you no longer like about your Sims' appearance.

How to Change Your Sims' Work Outfit
In The Sims 4, you'll find a huge variety of clothing, but it seems that work outfits are an exception. Usually, Sims receive different outfits with promotions, but that can require a lot of work and effort, and the upgrade is often not worth it. Therefore, using cheats once again is the best approach. Here's how you can edit work outfits:
Activate cheats with the command "testingcheats true".
Enter "sims.modify_career_outfit_in_cas" in the cheat console and press the Enter/Confirm key.
You will automatically see your Sim in their work outfit and can customize it according to your preferences.
Now you will never be unfashionable at work again, even if you don't work in the stylist career.
