I'm having a similar issue myself, except it's with turbans.

 

I mean, I do play on Oasis Springs a lot; I didn't think they'd take the whole desert theme that seriously...

This happens because the game creates hidden situational outfits. Ive seen it during a club event, when traveling to a bar, geekcon, spice festival and similar occasions. Sims that arent part of the current household being played with already nice outfits suddenly had very wierd outfits that werent in the outfit selection screen when checking with MCCC.

All sims except current household wearing weird clothes

★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.48.94.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All packs except the digital deluxe edition.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Just go to a community lot or go play an unplayed household. It's more likely to happen I think if you play a household that says one of the household members are on another lot. Sometimes you can see them walking by on the streets when on your home lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims, even sims I've made, walk around in the weirdest randomized outfits.
What do you expect to see? Sims wearing the clothes assigned to them.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. It seemed to happen after the Christmas patch, though it did occur. Just not as much.

I know we all see weirdly generated townies in the game but these aren't even randomly generated townies. These are premade townies or sims I've made. I have seen threads about randomly generated townies wearing the weird outfits but I havent seen anything about premade townies. (e.g. the Goth family) First I thought it was just because most premade townies don't have warm or cold clothes assigned to them and that's the mess that was generated, but I have made over a lot of the premade townies, giving them normal outfits. They just don't use them. I remember this started after get famous came out, it seemed to only happen to the celebrities, but it's happening to all my sims now and its driving me nuts seeing sims wearing random items from every single category. Its like they wear as much as possible. Hats, gloves, rings, bracelets, pants, shirts, etc. It seems they are usually cold weather themed but I see sims in them when it's really hot outside.

Hi @SnazzySnorlax

 

Are they wearing them when you switch to the household ? These are usually situational outfits the Sims never change out of when they should

 

I merged your post with the current thread on this issue but if you actually see those random things on the outfits the Sims wear when you switch to them, it might be something different going on too.

Please consider stopping adding situational outfits with each expansion, we do not need situational outfits for rain, fake vampires, celebrities etc. they look so bad and they fill little purpose except looking ugly.

Yeah, typically if I switch to the household they're still wearing it. I can change right out of it though but yeah it's just irritating.. :/ Also thanks for the merge!

But is it on the actual outfits in one of the categories or an 'extra' category ?

 

Just making sure here it's the same issue.

Hello crinrict, it is not on the actual outfits it is the generated situational outfits. The reasons this post keeps coming back is probably because everytime the developers add situational outfits they get worse and worse, because more items get added.
