The Fresh Prince of Bel Air titles

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air 90s Costume

My earliest memory of Will Smith is when he was one half of the rapping duo DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince in the late 1980s and into the first half of the 90s. However, for this page we're going to concentrate on creating a Fresh Prince fancy dress outfit, replicating the iconic look from the opening titles of his 90s TV sitcom.

Thankfully, it's a pretty easy look to create, and the main focus will be the yellow and green striped T-shirt and a baseball cap.


For convenience, this Fresh Prince Outfit (which includes the cap) is our first choice and is available from Ilovefancydress at Amazon. It comes in three sizes - small, x-large and xx-large. Oddly, there is no medium or large size.

However, we suggest buying the T-shirt and cap separately, as the T-shirt comes in a full range of sizes, and buying the items separately will save you money, too.

The shorts that Will Smith wore with the shirt and cap in the opening credits were blue with a yellow edging around the bottom of the legs and sat just above the knee. Finding replica shorts has proved to be impossible. However, a pair of plain blue shorts will be fine for fancy dress purposes.
