The Sims 4 Style Influencer Career

Rewards for Stylists and Trend Setters

The Sims 4's Style Influencer Tend Setter and Stylist Career Branches
Want to be a Stylist or Trendsetter? The Sims 4's Style Influencer Career is free for all players.

Included in the November 2018 Patch along with Terrain Tools and First Person, The Style Influencer Career is free for all Sims 4 players. The Stylist Career is a nice addition that is challenging while being very rewarding financially. Some players will enjoy making over poorly dressed and ugly Sims to give them a new look. You'll also unlock a few neat abilities that let you make trends or publish fashion articles for money (and fame if you have Get Famous).

Getting Started

The Sims 4's Style Influencer Tend Setter and Stylist Career Branches
Want to be a Stylist or Trendsetter? The Sims 4's Style Influencer Career is free for all players.

Join the Career like any other - using the phone or press 'J' and Join a Career. This is a Work from Home career, and will give you tasks when you choose to stay home. Completing the tasks will reward your Sim at the next shift. Despite its steep skill requirements for upper levels, being able to do the work from home tasks then work on skilling will allow you to rank up at a respectable pace.

Fashion Trends: The Sims 4 Style Influencer Video

Learn to play a Stylist in The Sims 4. Includes information on completing daily tasks, skills involved in the career, and how to start fashion trends.

Career Objects

The Sims 4's Styist can start trends and gets this fashion board
The Style Board is used in daily tasks. You can also build it up then use find muse to get a positive moodlet of several types. Both branches get the mirror pictured here.

Style Influencers get a digital sketch pad early on, which can be used to satisfy painting skill requirements, as well as a camera for photography. This skill made me realize that early in 2018 the developers had changed Photography from a Get to Work skill to one available in the Base Game. When you join the career, you also get a style board which is involved in daily tasks.

The sketch pad is portable and can be used to create paintings much like an easel. It simply has some new interactions for the career, and a new illustrative painting category. Prints of completed paintings will appear in your Sim's inventory, where they can be dragged to a wall to be displayed or sold directly.

Style Influencers get a computer at rank 4 that is very nice (one of the higher end base game models) and can use computers to blog about fashion (writing articles, recording style guides). Blogging may be a work from home task, while the style guides are available for Get Famous players to gain fame at any time.

Publishing Fashion Articles for Career Performance
At around level 4 in this career, you can use the 'Careers' menu on a computer to write fashion articles, then publish them. These actually give career performance even when off the clock. If it's a failure you will lose some, but it is very much in your favor as a good piece gives you 50 while a bad one is -30, with it being more likely the article is accepted if your Sim is good at writing and in a good mood.

About Gather Impressions
Players may struggle with the 'Gather Impressions' Daily Task. In order to do this, you use the phone to Photograph Impression. You'll get a moodlet for this and the task will be at 50%. From there you use the white style board that you get early in the career (found in the family inventory) to place the impression on it. This will remove the moodlet, allowing you to photograph impressions a second time. Until you've placed the first impression, you cannot get progress toward this task a second time which is the cause for confusion.

About the Take Photos Daily Task
Sigh. In this case, you may attempt to take a photo with the camera you're given via the career. However, this doesn't count. You need to use the phone, which is... not intuitive at all.

Early Levels

The Sims 4's Style Influencer Tend Setter and Stylist Career Branches

Nearly all the rewards for Style Influencer come in the first five levels. It would seem there's nothing unique here, though the rewards (both financial and tangible) are great for an early Sim. A $4,000 PC and sketch pad both providing means of making money while bonuses can help you fill out the office with decor. Fantastic.

Stylist Branch





There is not a lot of difference in the two branches of this career. Both lean heavily on Writing, Painting, and Charisma. Stylists unlock the ability to make over Sims (friendly interaction) sooner - immediately on taking the Stylist career branch.

Trend Setter Branch

Daily Task: Gather Impressions
There is a current bug with Gather Impressions where you cannot get it past 50% progress. This is due to the moodlet (4 hours, inspired) that appears when you do a sketch. Wait until this wears off then do another impression on the sketch pad.

Making Trends

The Sims 4's Style Influencer can create fashion trends
High level Stylists and Trend Setters can create trends, making it more likely random Sims will wear those outfits. You can make up to five for both feminine and masculine.

At level 7 for Trend Setter and 10 for Stylist, you can click your Sim to create masculine or feminine trends. Click the little plus sign in the top right to add an additional trend. When you have an outfit trending other Sims may appear in public, wearing the outfit that you designed. This can help a lot to make ugly townies a little less ugly. You can make up to five each for male/female. When you initially click the plus sign, it adds another and you can also delete them. Click the numbers to switch between trends. This does not seem to interact with the Seasons expansion in any way as far as I can tell.

On your sims PC under Writing and then probably under 'Career'. All sims career writing tasks are completed on your sims computer.

It could unlock at a later stage of the career then your sim is currently in. But look under the 'Career Tab' on your sims PC and the options 'Fashion Blog, Write Style Column, Find A Job and Quit Job' should be there.

Hi! I don't know if you figured out by now, but I was just struggling with the same thing and wanted to help. A column and an are the same thing. Just submit an article, and the task will be marked as done! :)

hello.isitmeyou'relookingfor.
Hi, just wondering, what is an impression buff and how can I get it?
Carl:
It is a moodlet your sim in the career gets by doing a Quick Sketch Impression on the Digitalistic Sketchpad

As the guide says just below the heading: Trend Setter Branch...
"Daily Task: Gather Impressions
There is a current bug with Gather Impressions where you cannot get it past 50% progress. This is due to the moodlet (4 hours, inspired) that appears when you do a sketch. Wait until this wears off then do another impression on the sketch pad."

Instead of waiting for hours you can add an impression to your impression board which gets rid of the noodles afterwards

I read this, but it does not tell you how to do the work from home assignment of seek muse for style reimaginer.
12th December 2018 3:49am

When the time for work arrives chose to stay home. Then just complete whatever the task is on your sims Work Information Panel.
To Seek Muse: This is an interaction on the Impression Board. If your sim needs the Style Impression buff then click on the Digitalistic Sketchpad and do the 'Quick Sketch Impression'. This will give your sim the Inspired Style Impression buff/moodlet. Now your sim will be able to seek muse on the board.

It's when you share a picture to your simstagram. Actually uploading ones you've taken won't give you credit.
