This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This set is continuation of formula’s bottom+top=bottom possibilities.

Here are:
4 simple summer tops with oriental ornament. Your sims can wear them tucked or untucked. You'll need Hysterical Paroxysm's untuckable top mesh from here:
(Compatible with base game, AF/YA)

2) Bottom. 4 simple summer skirts with oriental ornament on the belt. (No custom mesh need but need OFB, AF/YA)

3) Bottom + top = bottom. 4 skirts+4 boleros=12 skirt+bolero combinations. Skirt with bolero still just bottom so your sims can combine it with any top they have! But attention! Best of all these bottoms combine with top based on Hysterical Paroxysm's untuckable top mesh and them look not too bad with some Maxis's tops, not too bad with some other skinny meshes... But be attentive when you choose top because it can make look bolero ugly! And another detail - whereas it's still just bottom, in BodyShop or when you buy/change clothes it looks like just skirt on preview icon (I tried to change icons the way described in “How to use a custom icon in CAS or game for accessories” SnowStorm’s manual, but no deal). But you always can click on skirt and see bolero’s colour on the left so I think it isn't too big problem. (No custom mesh need but need OFB, AF/YA)

This time I didn’t make bolero+tee=separate top combinations and I don’t plan it because other people made it before. So if you need something like this you may use search
All files named clearly enough so you can delete if you dislike some of them.

Enjoy! Hope, you will
