Simple and chic; Adidas does so much better when they tone it down and go for simple. Ana, Simona and others who wore this dress all looked fab (which is more or less my criteria in this)
Had Nike put this out in more colours than this yellow and powder blue versions, I think we would have seen (for the first time potentially) more women wearing Serena's line of Nike clothing. I think this sums up what late 2010's fashions started doing in general and put it on the court. Serena's had several other dresses I've liked but the simplicity of design with the boldness of the cut really stood out to me.
I love this one because I think it did something that hard to do. It's not that Kim doesn't do fashion or that she doesn't have some nice clothes off court or anything like that, but it's hard to make Clijsters fashionable on court. The Goolagong Cawley flashback in 2011 was both appropriate for Kim and an amazing fashion moment. It finally made Kim look fashionable on court. I loved the colour, I loved the cut, and with the jacket it's everything.
I know, I know...but I swear to God the designer (this was a Nike x sacai collab) tried to make her a Sailor Guardian. I am here for that look. Putting that aside, I love a good pleated skirt and interesting top, and the back was interesting. It would have been more safe and boring without the weird cut out in the back. This dress very much accentuated Japanese fashions you could find in Tokyo with sports sensibility.
Venus has always had good looks, but I picked the two at the Australian Open in 2017 because not only did she look great, she had a swagger to go with it that I hadn't seen from her since 2010. It was like she was turning back the clock and surprising both all of us and herself. Sometimes looks aren't about which fashion boxes you tick off, but how they amplify your personal confidence and all of Venus' fashion exemplifies that.
