Serena Williams takes an impromptu trip to Greece.

The professional tennis player took photos of outfits near large ruins in Athens, posting them to her Instagram on July 20. The tennis player mentioned in the caption that the photos were intact so fans could see her natural color.

Williams wore a long black dress with a large side slit. The dress was a scoop neckline with a small tie detail baptizing the top of the leg slit. The dress was asymmetrical, with a high and low hem, adding drama and edge to the ensemble. Williams wore a gold heart-shaped pendant necklace and a large statement ring. Protect your eyes from the sun with large black square sunglasses. Williams went makeup-free, letting her skin glow naturally in the sun.

The four-time Olympic gold medalist swapped her beloved heels for something more casual, donning white trainers. The tennis player is known for her impeccable footwear style, wearing everything from sky-high platforms to sneakers like these. The shoes have a chunky “dad sneaker” feel with pointed black toes and white laces. The style is typical of Williams, something that allows for movement, allowing the tennis player to be ready for just about anything life throws at her.

A powerhouse in the sports world, Serena Williams has made her championship mark both on the tennis court and in the world of fashion. As the winner of 23 Grand Slam singles titles, Williams is often known for her vibrant and standout style, wearing everything from black jumpsuits to neon colors in competition. Her most notable brand deal is with Nike, a partnership that began in 2003. In 2018, the tennis star launched her S by Serena fashion line. Over the years, Williams has also partnered with HSN on fashion pieces, accessories and handbags.
