Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I grew up in love with 90’s sitcoms. From Family Matters to Martin, I was consumed with laughter for those 30 mins to an hour I was able to view these shows. Shows back in the day (seems like I’m dating myself) taught me valuable lessons, especially as a young black man. From how to maneuver in the world when you come from nothing to how to approach police officers in times of need. Looking back, I truly am thankful for all of the shows that taught me about life. One show in particular that held a lot of weight in my heart was The Fresh Prince of Belair, starring Will Smith and a blockbuster cast that forever lives on in our hearts. If you aren’t aware of this show, you should be ashamed of yourself (Seriously!). I’ve learned many family values from watching this show and it also gave me one my first introductions to a wealthy black family to be quite honest. Which in turn gave me something to strive for growing up. One thing that I learned about myself as a younger boy is that Both Will Smith and Carltons fashion styles were things I wanted to impersonate. Two different extremes, but both made sense to me. I had days where I wanted to exude my personality into my attire like Will did and there were also many days I wanted to have a cleaner Carlton look. Watching the show gave me the confidence to do both, understanding deep down that I can do whatever I wanted. So to old 90’s sitcoms, I thank you. On this day, I chose to pull a Carlton.
In this Carlton inspired getup, I am sporting a white sweater from Zara that highlights and brings out the colors in the outfit. A lavender Polo button up shirt from Macys .Followed by pants also from Zara and wingtips from Aldo.
Send me your best Carltons looks, would love to see how you guys put it together.
– untill next time.
