When Simpson first broke onto the music scene in 2004, she was set apart from her sister's already established image by a different musical style, different fashion choices, and a more assertive personality. Simpson's songs have been characterized by rock elements absent from her sister's music, and, particularly during the time of her initial stardom, Simpson would often wear outfits highlighting a more rock or punk-influenced sense of style. Her fingernails and toenails have often been painted black. Over time, Simpson has moved toward more typically feminine styles. In March 2008, she said that "I like to get dressed up now, and that's something I've never been into before" and "I like to be feminine and sexy." According to Simpson, in her sense of style she tends to "mix and match".

Previously blonde like Jessica, she dyed her hair dark during the recording of the MTV reality show after she finished filming for the 7th Heaven television series. In November 2004, she debuted a shorter haircut with the same dark color. Following the end of her Autobiography tour, in early May 2005 she moved back to a blonde color; she remained blonde until January 2008, when she appeared with a red hair color. During her stint on Broadway, she dyed her hair black. Recently, she dyed her hair back to a bleached blonde paired with a pixie cut.

She has seven tattoos, including a star tattoo on one wrist, two cherries on her ankle, the word "love" on her other wrist, the number "3" added to one wrist in 2007, and a large peony flower on one wrist in early March 2008.

In November 2005, eTalk broadcast a video of a late-night visit made by Simpson to a McDonald's fast-food restaurant in Toronto, Canada. Simpson appeared to be intoxicated in the video, and was shown arguing with an employee, as well as rejecting a customer's attempt to get an autograph from her because he wouldn't kiss her feet. According to Simpson in a 2006 Elle interview, she was "a little tipsy", and the customer had first called her "gross" before he had realized who she was, at which point he asked her for an autograph. She said that she told herself to "grow up" after the incident.

Simpson reportedly had a nose job in April 2006. When asked about it in an interview in May, Simpson neither confirmed nor denied it. In the May 2007 issue of Harper's Bazaar, she said that she was not insecure about her appearance and had not been beforehand. She said that plastic surgery was a "personal choice" that one should only decide to do for oneself and not for others. Joe Simpson said of the surgery in a September 2007 interview that "there was a real problem with her breathing and that was cured". In March 2008, she said that "as long as people have two eyes" they could determine whether she had a nose job.

Simpson married Fall Out Boy Bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz on May 17, 2008 in Encino, California at Simpson's parents' residence, where Ashlee's father officiated at the ceremony.

The couple announced that they were engaged on April 9, 2008. Simpson had previously been wearing what she described as a "promise ring" from Wentz for several months. On April 14, Us Weekly and OK! magazine reported that Simpson was pregnant. Wentz promptly denied this in an e-mail to MTV News, although Simpson, in an interview the next day, chose not to confirm or deny the report, saying that it was something to "keep personal", and on TRL she noted that rumors claiming she was pregnant had been appearing for so long that, if they were all true, she "would have had a baby by now". She changed her legal name from Simpson to Wentz and wished to be known professionally as Ashlee Simpson-Wentz.

On May 28, 2008, Simpson and Pete Wentz announced on Fall Out Boy's official website that they were expecting their first child. "While many have speculated about this, we wanted to wait until the press was gone to have our first child. This is truly the most joyous time in our lives and we are excited to share the happy news and start our family." That fall, Pete said they were "90% sure it was a boy". On November 20, 2008, Simpson gave birth to their son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz.

Simpson was ranked in the Billboard Decade-End Chart at #145 of Billboard 200 artists, while Autobiography was ranked at #148 on the Billboard 200 Albums.

On February 9, 2011, it was announced that Simpson had filed for divorce from husband Pete Wentz, citing irreconcilable differences. In the filing she asked for joint legal custody with visitation for Wentz but sole physical custody and spousal support. She also asked that her name be restored to her birth name of Ashlee Nicole Simpson.

Simpson occasionally appeared on Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, a reality show about the married life of Jessica and her then-husband Nick Lachey. To accompany and build interest in the beginning of her own music career, Simpson filmed and appeared on her reality television series, The Ashlee Simpson Show, which aired in a subsequent time slot to Newlyweds, and whose theme was the title song from her debut album, Autobiography. It ran in the U.S. for eight weekly episodes over the summer of 2004 (a second season of 10 episodes aired from January to March 2005). The show dealt with the process of writing, recording and performing Simpson-Wentz's music, as well as aspects of her personal life.

Simpson's first album, Autobiography, debuted at number one in the U.S. in July 2004, with first-week sales numbering around 398,000 copies. The album was certified triple-platinum in September 2004. Simpson co-wrote all of the album's tracks and described it as "very true to my emotions" in one interview, but critical reviews were mixed. Rolling Stone magazine's Peter Relic characterised Autobiography as a "mundane melange of Avril-ish brat pop and Sheryl Crow cod rock." E! Online wrote, "Even if it doesn't wow you, Autobiography may surprise you." The single that preceded the album, "Pieces of Me," was one of the biggest hits of the summer in the U.S. and sold well elsewhere. However, the follow-up singles, "Shadow" and "La La," were less successful.

When appearing for live performances, Simpson performs with a backing band. During the period from 2004 to 2006, the band consisted of Ray Brady (guitar), Braxton Olita (guitar), Joey Kaimana (bass guitarเน‚ย

Simpson's first North American tour ran from mid-February to late April 2005, and its opening acts were Pepper's Ghost and The Click Five. In addition to material from Autobiography, Simpson performed her own unreleased song "Hollywood," The Pretenders' "Brass in Pocket," Blondie's "Call Me" and Madonna's "Burning Up." She said that the tour would be "stripped down," without pyrotechnics, and that "it's gonna be me and my band getting out there and having fun." In March 2005, Simpson said that The Ashlee Simpson Show would conclude at the end of its second season, the last episode of which aired at the end of the month.

Simpson had a supporting role as an aspiring actress named Clea in Undiscovered, originally titled Wannabe, an independent film that was released in theaters in August 2005. Simpson filmed her scenes in late 2004. While Simpson's performance was met with acceptable reviews, the film itself was trashed by critics and placed outside of the top 10 in its opening weekend, earning just $676,048. Her performance in the film earned her a Razzie nomination for Worst Supporting Actress.

Simpson's second album, I Am Me, was released in on October 18, 2005. Simpson said that she had wanted to incorporate the feel of music from the 1980s on the album, and that unlike her debut, it would focus less on relationships and more on herself. I Am Me debuted at number one, with roughly 220,000 copies sold, but sales quickly deteriorated; by April 2006, it had sold a little less than 900,000 copies in the United States and 3 million copies worldwide, according to Simpson's biography. Its first single, "Boyfriend," became a top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and performed similarly elsewhere. The second single, "L.O.V.E.," reached the U.S. top 25; its success aided by a remix by R&B/hip-hop producer Missy Elliott and MTV's heavy rotation of the single's music video. It has been her most successful video to date on Total Request Live.

Simpson began a concert tour in late September in Portland, Oregon and appeared on the October 8, 2005 episode of SNL to promote the album. The first of Simpson's two performances on the show was of the ballad "Catch Me When I Fall," which was written about her previous SNL experience, and she thanked the crowd after her second performance. In mid-December, Simpson collapsed after performing in Japan, possibly due to exhaustion. She was briefly hospitalized, and consequently canceled an appearance at the Radio Music Awards.

Simpson and her sister Jessica were scheduled to appear in Rolling Stone magazine in a shoot shot by photographer David LaChapelle in 2005, but upon hearing the concept, both sisters were said to be uncomfortable with LaChapelle's raunchy ideas and canceled, outraging the photographer. He ranted to the press in early 2006, calling them "everything that's wrong with music." Furthering his statement, LaChapelle said he was just trying to "make the Simpsons look cool. I realize now that is an impossible task." LaChapelle planned to have the sisters "down and dirty" and appearing with snakes.

Simpson won a Kelly Slater/MTV celebrity surfing invitational competition, which also featured celebrities such as Meagan Good, Jack Osbourne (her main competitor during the competition), Ashley Parker Angel and Tony Hawk, as part of an MTV-sponsored 'Spring Break' Special in March 2006. On April 12, 2006 she hosted and performed at the MTV Australia Video Music Awards, where she won "Best Female Artist" and "Best Pop Video" (for "Boyfriend"). A new single, "Invisible," was released in mid-2006 and reached the top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. Simpson began a summer tour on June 5, 2006 with Ashley Parker Angel as an opening act; initially The Veronicas also opened but quit the tour after the first few shows due to a problem with one of their singers' vocal cords.

Simpson said that after this tour, which ended in late July, she would be going on vacation, that she would take her time making her third album, and that she would look at movie scripts and continue her acting career.

Simpson played the role of Roxie Hart in the West End production of Chicago to rave reviews, from September 25 to October 28, 2006. One reviewer called Simpson's performance in the show "dazzling and near flawless".

In November 2006, Simpson said that she was going to meet with record executives soon and begin working on her third album. During 2007, Simpson worked on the album, which was eventually given the title Bittersweet World, with producers Timbaland, Kenna, and Chad Hugo. She said that it would have a more "soulful" sound and more emphasis on beats than guitars.

Geffen chairman Ron Fair said in December 2006 that working on Simpson's next album would be "very tricky" because of press scrutiny and "prejudices", but that Geffen would work with her to overcome that, "because she deserves to be heard and she deserves a shot." A March 2007 interview with suggested she was working with a variety of musicians for her new album.

In October, the album's release was delayed to the first quarter of 2008. The album's first single, the Timbaland-produced "Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya)", was released as a digital download in December 2007.

In an interview with Cosmogirl for its December 2007/January 2008 issue (for which she was the cover girl), Simpson said that she had a "stronger vision" for this album and that she challenged herself by "working with new sounds and new people". She described the result as a "fun party album" with a "silly and quirky" side. Regarding her future plans, she said that she wanted to take some small movie roles and eventually move into bigger roles. She also said she would like to do theater again and to someday have a clothing line.

Simpson has described the album as having some influences from '80s music while still incorporating some pop/rock. She intends to go on tour to support the album. Its second single, "Little Miss Obsessive", was released in March 2008.

Bittersweet World was released in the U.S. on April 22, 2008. Reviews for the album were characterized as mixed. A collection of tops designed by Simpson was launched by the clothing retailer Wet Seal on April 22, in connection with the album's release.

Simpson began appearing in commercials for Canadian retailer Zellers to promote their independent clothing line, Request, in mid-2008.
