In West Philadelphia born and raised…The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith, starts off his story this way at the beginning of each episode of his 90’s sitcom. After getting mixed up in a fight, his mother sends him to live with his well-off, well-to do relatives. Full of spunk and wearing his fresh style, Will Smith navigates the culture shock that comes from being an average teenager among his hoity-toity, rich relatives.
Will Smith wears a lot of different outfits on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but many can immediately identify the outfit he wears in the opening sequence. He is very matchy-matchy, but with clear self-expression and style. His color pallete is mostly bright, fluorescent green and blue. He wears a flat-billed cap, a striped T-shirt, and some comfortable athletic shorts for the long taxi ride.
