Serena Williams has always known her way around a head-turning tennis outfit. (Exhibit A: that Nike catsuit.) But the Serena Williams outfit encyclopedia has become so stuffed with moments from her tennis career, her outfits off the court haven’t been given enough attention.
Serena Williams’ outfits in real life share her tennis outfits’ bold colors and striking designs—just with a serious business woman kick. When she’s not serving at 125 miles per hour, Serena Williams is running her namesake fashion label and investing in startups through her venture capital firm, Serena Ventures. If you’re also making money moves and need a striking look to do it, there’s a Serena Williams outfit for that.
Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit
Serena Williams attended the 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit in the most timeless of business outfits, the grey suit. Where other dressers would make a matching set look stuffy, Serena Williams stays fun with a cropped jacket and ankle booties. Serena Williams has even convinced her friends to try similar business casual looks: Meghan Markle, her close friend, has worn a blazer from the Serena Williams collection.
At The Game Changers Premiere
“Less is more” is the golden rule for a Serena Williams outfit. Last fall, Serena Williams attended the premiere of The Game Changers in a midi slip dress and yellow pumps. With a blazer, her dress would belong at the office; alone, it’s red carpet material.
A Charity Fundraiser
Serena Williams picked a sweater dress with asymmetrical buttons and knee-high boots to lead a fundraiser for her charitable foundation, the Yetunde Price Resource Center. Warm tones and thick fabrics make this Serena Williams outfit a go-to for fall events that skew business casual.
