Unsatisfied with the basic clothes you get as you level up? Are the paid clothing sets not your style? Not to worry; Izzy has what you’re looking for.
Who is Izzy, you ask? Izzy is your personal fashion assistant and you’ll want to visit him often if you want your Sims to stay at the height of fashion. You’ll meet Izzy shortly after getting to level 5, so you won’t have to wait long to be introduced to custom fashion designs.
Izzy will show you where his shop is located the first time he comes to see you, but for future reference, you can find Izzy’s Fashion Shop in the Parkside neighbourhood right next to the cafe. You can’t miss it; it’s the trailer decked out in Izzy’s signature style, dramatic hair roof and all. You can visit Izzy anytime you want, but make sure you can pay him for his services. Luckily, Izzy isn’t interested in your hard earned simoleons. His currency of choice is fashion gems. You can earn two fashion gems a day just by completing the “Give Stickers” task in your To-Do List, but participating in weekly sticker events will also reward you with fashion gems that you can redeem for new outfits designed by Izzy. Fashion Gems can be purchased with SimCash as well.
It costs 20 Fashion Gems to have Izzy create a new design for you. Izzy will come up with a random new style for your Sims. If you like the design, you can keep it, but if you’re not a fan of what Izzy offers you, you can discard it and ask him to design something else, instead. It will cost you some more Fashion Gems to do this, however.
Some of the clothes Izzy designs provides trait boosts and other benefits in-game while your Sims are wearing them, so it’s a good idea to pay Izzy a visit whenever you’ve saved up a nice stack of Fashion Gems. Wearing Izzy’s custom designs will also help your Sims get noticed at parties and events and they might get stickers from other Sims. Getting lots of stickers during weekly sticker events is a great way to earn Fashion Gems to get more cool clothes from Izzy, so it’s all connected in one big fashionable circle.
On top of all the other benefits, expanding your wardrobe raises your Lifestyle score, allowing you to expand your property and add new rooms onto your Sims’ home. The benefits of using Izzy’s Fashion Shop are nearly endless.
So gather up those gems and get Izzy to whip up something special for that next big party your Sims are attending.
