In the summer, when our calendars consist of vacations, days by the water, and whatever else the season has in store, leaning on comfortable classics in makes warm-weather styling all the more approachable. So, when a new seasonal trend rolls around (hello, Tomato Girl), I’m usually a skeptic. However, nothing excites me more than finding functional-yet-comfortable styles to add to my closet, and this up-and-coming trend checks off all the boxes. Enter: boxer shorts.

Before you scroll, hear me out. Although the style is reminiscent of your boyfriend’s closet, boxer-inspired shorts should be on the top of your summer wishlist for more than just their comfortable appeal. They offer a refreshing alternative to denim cut-offs, but can still be styled similarly with ease. What’s more: they bring a pop of color and print to an otherwise minimalist outfit, which is just what the doctor ordered in summertime heat.

I just ordered my pair and I can’t wait to live in them all summer long. I’ll be styling them with an oversized tee and sneakers for an afternoon of shopping. Or pairing them with a linen shirt and dainty jewelry for warm sunset dinners. Although they might feel like a giant leap from the usual summer offerings, loungewear as everyday attire is nothing out of the ordinary. (Think: slip dresses and sheer tops). If anything, boxer shorts are an addition to this cozy arsenal that’ll spark some creativity in your styling efforts. And definitely land you a compliment or two. Plus, they’re an easy option for days when you don’t feel like coming up with an outfit, but still want to look effortlessly polished. Have we sold you yet?

Below, we’ve rounded up all the best boxer short options that are sure to become a go-to in your closet. They’re so chic, don’t be surprised when they replace our denim shorts this summer.
