Jeans and "Western" shirts, diverse sizes, colors for "autumn"s
I took the specific base hue/saturations used here from a pictorial of color swatches suitable for folks with "autumn" coloration. (Noise added, though-- necessary to deMaxis the look somewhat. And note that the shoes have a brown cast-- leaving them a perfect match looked fake.) While the idea was to produce some shape-diverse simple clothing likely to be flattering on redheads, I make no promises-- "redhead" coloration is diverse, too, and specific red haired Sims may not even be autumns in the first place. (Not being a color consultant, I'm not qualified to judge whether anyone is an autumn; I just set the models in the screenshots to pale skin and red hair and am hoping for the best. For that matter, neither the "Mom Shirt" nor the "Slacks and Heels" are particularly flattering cuts in the first place; this is prosaic clothing showing wear, not brand new clubbing togs.)
I've tried to distribute the colors such that you have at least a hope of being able to put together a credible outfit for figures ranging from Warlokk's 34A32 through 34Dn38. (See, for example, the screenshot "coordination.jpg" in the second post.) Failing that, you can always move textures to the meshes you need them on yourself. Further, the file names and tooltips contain the exact hexadecimal specification of the shade I started from, which should simplify your life if you want to build another garment akin to these.
Annoyance: I can't find the web site I got the swatches from in the first place; I saved the jpgs into a directory named "Bella", but I didn't save the URL. I don't see anything that looks familiar at Bella Apparel, Bella Online, or Bella magazine's web sites. Ergo, if these colors make you want to eat your own head, I guess the only person who can really be blamed for it is me...
This came about as the result of my interest in alkaloid's Natural Redhead Project; see http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=203048 . If alkaloid says it's part of it, it is-- but given how much of the Maxis look I left in (to simplify coordination with existing stocks of separates), I can't guarantee a slam-dunk against http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=31109 .
The TSW in the tool tips and file names is from my own filing system (which, however, apparently isn't good for a whole heck of a lot.) LBG is my alias' alias.
