The Williams sister with the feisty style- Serena Williams
Serena Williams is one of the best female tennis players worldwide. Having been ranked no. 1 by the WTA ( Women's Tennis Association) a number of times, she has proved her skill time and again, and despite all odds. However, tennis is not the only thing she’s fiercely good at. Serena Williams in known for her very unique style quotient, and every now and then, she amazes the world with her independent sense of style. Never one for the fashion trends, Serena Williams has always chosen to dress to please herself, and her sense of identity. Not just off the court, but also on it, Serena has managed to stand out due to her independent interpretation of style and fashion. Her clothes have always reflected her individualism, rather than looking like the trend which the other tennis players might be sporting. Her outfits stand out due to their strong, fierce colours, and their refusal to conform. In 2002, she wore a black catsuit to the U.S Open. The catsuit was a figure hugging one, made out of lycra, and although the fashion police did not take too kindly to it, she was regaled for having a very daring sense of style. At the same tournament in 2004, she was seen walking in with denim skirts and boots, which was a far cry from the regular sports apparel worn by tennis players. Despite the fact that the rules did not permit her to wear the boots while playing, she made quite a statement with her unique choice of clothes. She almost always goes for bright colours, even neon ones, and she does not believe in keeping it subtle. Like her talent for tennis, her clothes too reflect strength, daring, and defiance against conventions. Despite her strong build and muscular physique, Serena Williams never shied away from wearing all kinds of clothes, but she almost always keeps it comfortable while playing tennis. It is her unique sense of style which made Puma, and later Nike, sign her on to showcase a special line of sportswear for women which seemed akin to her own unique style statements. Off the court too, she has often defied fashion trends in order to dress exactly as she pleased. 2004 saw her releasing her own brand of clothes under her very own label, called Aneres. In 2009, she released Signature Statement, which is her own line of jewelry and bags. Her approach was phenomenal, since she decided to make and sell clothes which were unique, and which the conventions frown down upon. Over the years, her rather quirky sense of style might have invited quite a few raised eyebrows, especially from fashion conscious people, but she has remained a fashion rebel. Like everything else in her life, she has consistently refused to be put into a categorized box, and she has always made sure that she stands out as a unique woman, who is stylish without aping the dictates of fashion magazines. Serena Williams has her very own fashion statement, and she is never afraid to flaunt it.
