Today I bring you some outerwear recolours for kids. Surprisingly enough, Maxis did provide quite a few options when it came to outerwear. But I thought I'd add a few more.

There are six new recolours of the basic snowsuit. They all come with striped mittens. I often wished for purple and turquoise... so I made them. There are three different styles, and all can be worn by both boys and girls. All use a mesh from the Seasons EP, and therefore require it.

Then I thought my Sims could use a few more raincoats. I wanted to keep them basic, so these ones are plain and come in six colours. All colours are unisex. The raincoats require Seasons.

And, finally, I made some recolours of the girls' coat that came with the base game. I've set these as Everyday and Outerwear... I'm not sure if they'll show up in the base game (but they should... that's where the mesh is from). Only girls can wear these coats.
