Serena Williams’ tennis career spanned over two decades, with 23 Grand Slam wins and four Olympic medals cementing her as one of the greatest athletes of all time. Today, we pay tribute to the international icon, whose style has inspired fashion trends both on and off the court. Here are some of our favorite looks!
2022 US Open
Let it be known that Serena Williams has won six US Open singles championships over her career and competed in countless others. Each appearance allowed her the opportunity to experiment with her style. During her most recent (and final) appearance in Arthur Ashe Stadium, she donned a mesh ballet-inspired tutu we can’t help but adore. The flared skirt provides a fun moment in between the heated volleys.

Tennis players were once required to wear all white. We’ve come a long way since then, and Williams shows how colors and patterns can liven up the game: A bold and bright leopard-printed ensemble is the way to go.
