In The Sims 2, The Sims 3 and The Sims 4, Plan Outfit is an interaction that requires a dresser to change a Sim's clothes for an outfit type. In The Sims 3, it can also be used for cloning precreated neighborhood and in-game created Sims to the Sim bin in Create a Sim or The Exchange.
This option does not exist in The Sims. Wardrobes in The Sims have a "Change clothes" option which allows a player to change a Sim's Everyday skin, so long as the Sim is wearing Everyday clothes. (At times, it may be necessary to have the Sim "Change to Normal" before the option will appear, even if he or she appears to be wearing Everyday clothes.) The player will be able to choose from all Everyday clothes, both Maxis-made and custom, which are made for the Sim's age, gender, body type, and skin tone.
In The Sims 2 using the "Plan Outfit" interaction allows the player to select a clothing type and change the Sim's outfit for that type to one that has been bought or was provided automatically for any household member of the same age and gender. The player cannot "Plan Outfit" for a clothing type unless there are at least two outfits of that type to choose from, or a modified dresser is being used. If the player uses "Plan Outfit" for the clothing type the Sim is wearing, he or she will automatically change into the selected outfit.
Sims cannot plan their maternity wear at any time unless mods or modified objects are used, even if the household's wardrobe contains outfits flagged as maternity wear. Also, when Sims become visibly pregnant, the clothing they can wear is restricted to maternity wear, PJs, undies, and swimwear, but their ability to access Plan Outfit is not affected. However, while the Sim is visibly pregnant, Plan Outfit only affects what the Sim will wear after the pregnancy is over. Since the Plan Outfit "mannequin" of the Sim will show the Sim as pregnant if the selected outfit has a pregnancy morph, this may not be obvious when planning the pregnant Sim's PJs, undies, or swimwear. Getting a visibly pregnant Sim to wear anything other than their game-assigned maternity wear and maternity PJs, undies, and swimwear requires mods or modified objects.
Using boolprop testingcheatsenabled, a player can select the "Plan Outfit" option in the Sim's pie menu and add any clothes in the game to their cart, which will allow the Sim to wear them.
In The Sims 3, the player will enter Create a Sim, and can enter Create a Style as well. The player will be able to edit the Sim's outfit for each clothing type, and create up to 3 different outfits for each type.
In The Sims 4, similarly to The Sims 3, the player enters Create a Sim and can change all clothes of the household Sims and create different outfits for each type of clothing.
