10 Questionable Outfit Choices By Serena Williams
Serena Williams has always been one to experiment with different kinds of outfits, but there are some that she probably should not have worn.
Only the Williams sisters and perhaps Bethanie Mattek-Sands – if you know your tennis you’ll know why – would dream of trying to wear an outfit like this. If the opportunity presented itself, Bethanie would probably wear it out on court during an actual competitive match. Serena wasn’t that brave, wasn’t willing to ridicule herself to that extent. But nevertheless, she did face a lot of ridicule when this picture came out. It’s of course for a photoshoot, and it’s probably one Serena seriously regretted doing.
I mean what were people thinking getting Serena dressed head to toe in tight pink latex? In all likelihood the brains of the operation probably had a fetish for that kind of stuff, and just threw a load of money at Serena and invented some kind of marketing campaign so he could create his fantasy.
Sometimes players can add a little something to their get up, something that makes them pop a tad, differentiates them from the other players and outfits around them. Serena doesn’t really need to do that. It’s not as if people don’t know who she is. But still, she feels the need to experiment with her outfit.
This one is sure to divide opinion. Some may love it, a whole lot of people probably hate it. It’s as though she picked up her Wimbledon outfit and told the clothing manufacturers and designers that she wanted to incorporate some pink in there for the U.S. open. The streaks in her skirt aren’t all bad. But what about those sleeves? Pink sleeves with a white top. I’m no fashion guru but I’m saying that they don’t go. People normally wear those sleeves when they’re injured. Serena thought they’d look good. She got it wrong on this occasion.
While a lot of tennis players who have sponsors have to make do with what’s given to them, it’s fair to assume that a woman like Serena Williams has a lot of say on the matter. All she needs to say is that she’s not too fond of the outfit, and people will bend over backwards to provide her with one she likes. But for some reason she didn’t feel the need to do that with this bright yellow/green number.
It’s not one of her best color choices, and what’s with the blue earrings? Normally she’s quite good at color coordination, but this time around it’s as though her mind was elsewhere. Serena looks like a bodybuilder in a dress in this pic. It’s not a flattering outfit, nor is it a flattering image.
It used to be the case that people wouldn’t care what you wear at practice. It’s all about what you bring to the court in the heat of battle that matters. But when you’re someone of the caliber of Serena Williams, people are going to scrutinize you in whatever situation you’re in.
A lot of today’s current crop put as much attention into what they wear on the practice court than they do when in a match situation. Serena obviously didn’t put much thought into this outfit. It’s as though she just found those yoga pants lying around and decided to give them a try. It’s not a great look, not a great color or design, and it certainly doesn’t suit Serena.
Those Nike yoga pants aren’t one of her best fashion decisions.
