3 KING OF HARTS
Actress and Westporter Melissa Joan Hart noticed a lack of cool, functional clothing for her boys, so she and her husband, Mark Wilkerson, created their own clothing line: King of Harts. While the line sticks to the basics—such as graphic tees, jeans, button downs—each piece has lots of style and lets boys be boys. A girl’s line, aptly named Queen of Harts, was recently launched and seeks to empower girls. Talented artists design the graphics, keeping the look contemporary and stylish.
