With warm weather still lingering, it was easy to keep hold of summer long into September. But now October is here, and it’s officially time to reckon with the end of summer if you haven’t already done so. Professional tennis player Genie Bouchard is doing just that.

The Canadian athlete took to Instagram on Oct. 4 to share a carousel of her favorite photos from the season. Interspersed with videos and snaps of time spent on the tennis court were photos of an idyllic trip to Rome. Bouchard shared pics as she posed in front of famous Roman monuments and offered peeks at some delicious Italian fare from her holiday.

In the first snap, she sat in front of the Trevi Fountain in the perfect streetwear look: a simple pair of blue denim and a vintage Harley Davidson T-shirt, which she paired with an oversized black blazer for her afternoon of tourist activities in the Italian capital.

While Bouchard opted for the look for a summer afternoon, the pieces could easily become fall closet staples, as well. After all, a good blazer is the perfect staple for both elevating a casual look and providing a touch of warmth on cooler days in the fall.

The 29-year-old proved the versatility of the outfit in the fifth slide by switching out the simple T-shirt for a black crop top and adding pink satin block heels, turning the afternoon streetwear into a night-out ensemble. As it turns out, a black blazer and jeans is the perfect base for a variety of weather and occasions—and, thus, two staples you need in your closet whatever the season.
