Prior to the pandemic, the word loungewear just wasn’t in my vocabulary, and I only allowed myself one pair of sweatpants for sick days—you bet they were by a personal favorite designer. As a fashion girl, heels were the only shoes I wore, and my collection of miniskirts and slip dresses deserved to be as out and about as I was. With the sudden need to adjust to a more comfort-first wardrobe while spending many more hours at home, I’ve done a lot of research to find what works best for me in the past two years. I traded in a few of the wardrobe staples mentioned earlier, and artfully styled boxer shorts just might be the micro-trend that replaces them.
I’m taking “borrow from the boys” to a whole new level by elevating a few pairs of boxer shorts using the tricks that I’ve learned from some of my favorite fashion insiders. If the chicest girls on my Instagram feed are styling boxer briefs for women, then what am I waiting for? Let’s just say the below looks officially have me convinced. I’ve been watching them experiment with these shorts using tailoring, color, and simple accessories, and now, it’s my turn. A few quick purchases will get me ready to style them endlessly, so scroll on to discover the looks that I’m shopping for so I can be just as chic.
