Boxer Shorts Are This Season’s Must-Have Warm-Weather Apparel
Recently, fashion-minded consumers have seen slip dresses and bikini sets become all the rage during summertime. However, this year the fashion crowd seems to have turned their focus toward something a bit more comfortable – boxer shorts seem to be this year’s must-have warm weather apparel, seen worn by Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid among many others.
Boxer shorts have long been seen in menswear stores (think borrowed-from-your-boyfriend boxers), but recently this style of underwear has also made its way onto women’s fashion scenes, providing fashionable options in both high-waisted cotton silhouettes and low-cut nylon versions. Offering chic options to pair with all sorts of summer outfits ranging from formal events such as formal balls to more casual lunch dates; boxer shorts may soon become your new go-to summer style staple!

Influencer and brand founder Danielle Brooks shows how you can keep your boxers trendy by pairing them with sneakers – an aesthetic she achieved by pairing her black nylon boxer shorts with a crisp white button-down, as well as strappy sneakers from Puma, for a look that was both cool and casual. To make this look appropriate for work environments, swap out the sneakers for loafers before finishing it off with a sleek leather statement bag.
Emily Ratajkowski also opted for an office-appropriate ensemble when she donned her pair of cotton boxers with white button-down blouse and plain black loafers at Loewe’s show at Paris Fashion Week last month. To complete her sartorial choice, she added an oversized pair of sunglasses as well as faded blue Yankees cap.
