Ahh, there’s nothing quite like the power of celebrity dressing and street style to leave you wanting to wear your boxer shorts outside of the bedroom. While this trend has certainly had its ups and downs, it’s getting a more masculine, athleisure twist this season.

At Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2017, for instance, models stomped the concrete runway in breezy and lacy boxer shorts paired with neon sweaters and boxy tops. Meanwhile, Dior gave boxer shorts a feminine touch, styling them underneath ethereal sheer gowns and skirts. If this alone doesn’t convince you that you need a pair of boxer shorts this season, global trendsetters the likes of Cara Delevingne, Chiara Ferragni, and Karlie Kloss will. These “It” girls have all made a convincing case for the trend, interpreting it to suit their personal aesthetic.

The bonus here? While you may think this trend is too risqué to try out, it’s actually wearable around town – if and when done correctly. Scroll down for Savoir Flair’s styling tips and to shop the look.

Style Tip #1

Cara Delevingne added major fashion points to her street-style cred with this look. Make sure your logo-trimmed waistband is peeking out of your trousers – and peeking only.

Style Tip #2

Take your breezy boxers out of the bedroom and onto the street, pairing them with a cute crop top, a shacket, and mid-heel pumps like street-style star Chiara Ferragni.

Wearing boxer shorts beneath a sheer skirt, like Karlie Kloss did, adds an unexpected cool-girl touch to an otherwise girly look.
