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.
Wrap Blazer Dress
Combining two of Hilary’s favourite things–bodycon dressing and blazers–this frock isn’t afraid to mix business with pleasure.
Four hand-made tiers of strikingly colourful felt give this chapeaux eye-catching appeal.
The Bamboo Pearl Earrings
($199.00, Omi Woods)
A contemporary silhouette and smattering of freshwater pearls brings the accessory drama your next Zoom call needs.
These Canadian-made gloves feature a 100% cashmere lining and a mood-lifting pop of colour.
($255.00, Max Mara)
Boasting a luxe combo of silk organza and feathers, all eyes will be on you when you don this bold brooch.
1970s Leather and Suede Panelled Trench Coat
($200.00, Nouveau Riche)
A take-you-anywhere topper in a mix of materials done in strong geometric shapes is the ideal finishing touch for any outfit.
Texture and metallic detailing lend this cincher a haute appeal.
Birds of North America
($139.00, Birds of North America)
This stretchy pencil skirt is prim, preppy and princess-worthy.
($250.00, Dr. Liza)
The bubblegum hue of this comfy shoulder bag would have Hilary’s heart racing.
Par Ici Jewellery
2tone Fall Collar
($335.00, Par Ici Jewellery)
Mixed metals and a collar-length make this Toronto-based brand’s necklace a style win.
($595.00, Pretty Denim)
If there’s one thing Hilary loved, it was being a trend-setter. This classic blazer fabricated in white denim is newness to the max.
Who wouldn’t go wild for a slouchy knit with a zebra print?
($87.00, Tiro Tiro)
This Portland-based line’s pieces evoke traditional craft techniques and modern flair.
The unexpected-yet-subtle combination of sunshine yellow and classic camel will put a spring in your step all year.
Sporty & Rich
($205.00, Sporty & Rich)
We’re in an “all loungewear, all the time” vibe right now and even Hilary would trade in her put-together pieces for this cheeky sweatshirt.
($295.00, Erica Leal)
An artful interplay between bronze and resin ensure total arm candy impact.
Mode de Mit
Vintage Puff Sleeve Blouse
($116.68, Mode de Mit)
The flamboyant embellishment and grand sleeves on this 1980s blouse are, like, totally amazing.
