17 Pieces Hilary Banks of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Would Wear Today


As one of television’s reigning queens of style, Hilary Banks taught us the power of many things including colour-blocking, bold accessories and tailoring. Now that The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion is on Crave, we wanted to suggest a few closet updates for Hil — played to princess-y perfection by Karyn Parsons — and for those of us inspired by her wardrobe. Whether you’re wearing these pieces to a virtual meeting or a political “party” (which Hilary would not likely join but would happily attend), prepare to embrace your own bold bit of Beverly Hills sartorial savvy.
