The Sims 4 Moschino Stuff Pack Review: A Fashion Forward Collection

The Sims 4 Moschino Stuff Pack Review

The Sims 4's latest DLC expansion brings fashion-conscious users a new capsule collection for their virtual selves with a brand new Stuff Pack. It's been over a year since the previous pack made the rounds, with My First Pet Stuff debuting in March 2018. Electronic Arts and Maxis Redwood Shores appear to be kickstarting production of new Stuff Pack once more with the debut of The Sims 4 Moschino Stuff Pack, and luckily for fans, it's a surprisingly content-rich experience that offers a pleasing range of high-end fashion from Italian label Moschino as well as a few surprises here and there.

First announced in April 2019, this special collection kicked off with a real-world pop-up store from Moschino, which offered a range of Sims-themed clothing from Moschino such as T-shirts, dresses, purses, and more. Now, if you purchased some of the items from the collaboration, you can match your Sims. Some of the Moschino-branded pieces have now made its way into The Sims 4.

The Moschino Stuff Pack nets players 20 total pieces of clothing items in addition to four new hairstyles. There's a wide variety of pieces that run the gamut between eye-catching and gaudy, such as a sequined military coat and colorful asymmetrical biker jacket, but there are far more casual pieces in the range, too.

You might opt to dress your Sims with some of the flashier items like a long-sleeved shirt that mimics a tuxedo top, or keep things classy with a mustard-color pencil skirt. Alternatively, go casual with a light gray T-shirt featuring an adorable pink rabbit wearing a Moschino hat. The plumbob earrings and swimsuit really tie things together.

What may surprise players is the fact that even the collection's statement pieces aren't as garish as you may expect from runway-ready pieces. There may be a few items you may never dress your Sims in, but for the most part there's a versatile selection of clothes here to play with that should make getting ready fun. Unfortunately, the jewelry options do stop at the plumbob earrings, and the hairstyles themselves aren't so inspired. The focus here was clearly on ensuring the clothing brand was well-represented.

If clothes don't satisfy however, the new freelance photography career just might. You can become a freelance photog just the same as you might become a freelance writer in-game thanks to an early 2019 update, and it's simple to chug along in. Your Sim will follow the career path, complete tasks, and then receive approval based on the work they submit, just like in real life. But now that photography is included, your Sim will need to take photos. This brings the addition of a tripod, which will let you head out into the world and take still frames of Sims, the landscape, or whatever you want, all ripe for hanging on your wall with a collection of new frames.

The new job functionality includes a major improvement to the previously barebones photography options, and even allows you to take and edit selfies with the greatest of ease, as well as adjust moods, poses, and additional subjects in each photo. Want to take a snap of your Sims flexing at the gym while grimacing? You can do that. These photography options help to flesh out what could easily have been an additional clothing dump that could have alienated some users who aren't as interested in dress-up time, but looking for additional features, and for that it's well worth picking up on its own.

The Sims 4 Moschino Stuff Pack is a well-rounded expansion that includes plenty of exciting new content, whether you're interested in outfitting your favorite Sims with runway-ready clothing, furthering their freelance photography careers, or talking some killer selfies. It's a sweeping return to form for the Stuff Pack in general, and if this is the direction The Sims 4 is taking soon, we can't wait to see where it all leads.
