Boxer shorts in fashion
We were not prepared for the fact that boxer shorts would play a significant role in the fashion scene of 2022. But that doesn't mean we are not happy about it.
Trendy boxer shorts
For true fashion lovers, there is only one model that really stands out when it comes to trendy boxer shorts. The wide boxer shorts in fact get the biggest stage in the fashion world. During fashion shows by Prada, Dior, Louis Vuitton, and others for the autumn of 2022, we already saw that the waistband of such boxer shorts was visible above the waistband of the trousers. This is not a tight band, but a loose boxer that is visible above the jeans or oversized chinos.
Oversized, by the way, is the key word in 2022. Just like boxer shorts, trousers can be wide as well; oversized is the way to go! For example, you can wear your jeans one size bigger and thus lower on the hips so that the boxer shorts are clearly visible.
The fashion colours of the wide boxer shorts have not changed, classic colours such as light blue, dark blue or white are most popular. Choose simple designs such as chequered or striped that are also visible on the waistband of the boxer shorts, so that they are clearly visible above the brand of the trousers you are wearing.
Origin of this boxer shorts trend
The trend of visible boxer shorts above the waistband of a pair of trousers originated in prisons. Belts are not allowed in prisons, which means that the wider trousers are worn lower on the hips, making the boxer shorts more visible.
The hip-hop culture of the 1990s was the first to introduce this trend to the street scene. In this period, the brand of boxer shorts was important to assume a certain status. Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, and Polo boxer shorts were very popular. The clear difference between now and the 90s is that the brand is not important at all. Less is more. So just letting the waistband of the wide boxer shorts protrude above your trouser waistband is enough to join the current trend.
