Fresh Prince Week – New Age Will Smith

In one of my recent post, I discussed 90s sitcoms and how they affected my life as a young child. From family matters, Living Single, and Seinfield, each show held a certain significance in my life. The show that had the biggest impact on me as a child was the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Like I mentioned in my previous Carlton post,  the effect that this show had on my life was monumental. From understanding my culture too learning about different styles; something both Will and Carlton embodied while I envied their style.  In this post I will dive into a more Will Smith inspired look. Will Smiths look really resonated with me, especially as a young man because it showed me what confidence was. Will truly honed in on his style, from wearing blazers with Jordan brand sneakers to sporting eccentric colors at any given moment. This gave me the confidence at a very young age to be comfortable in bright, vibrant colors.

In this look I dived into a more street style look with a casual overview. Starting off from the bottom, I am sporting a pair of blue loafers from Zara. With this look, I wanted to show more of a relax, early fall look. My pants are also from Zara(Clearly I enjoy Zara). The shirt I am sporting is from Ralph Lauren and to wrap up this look I am wearing a vintage LA Lakers snap back from a thrift store in LA.

Please don’t mind me, I am a true child at heart. Very much like Will Smiths character in The Fresh Prince. You should always be having fun!
