Yes, Briefs Are Trending, and We Have the Photos to Prove It

The summer 2020 trends we thought would make it big this season certainly did, but there are a handful of newbies that bubbled up as well. Since we'll be spending a lot more time indoors, the trends are adapting to our newfound lifestyle, and the most recent one to grace our presence is affordable, photogenic, and extremely comfortable: boxer briefs. That's right, the underwear is officially trending, and we have all the Instagram photos to prove it. 

The style has become wildly popular among the fashion set, as they have continued to post dozens of outfit photos lounging around the house in the comfortable underwear. We first started to take note of the rise of the classic brief a few months ago, but now, the trend has evolved into a slightly bigger, more editorial-looking version that feels fresh and exciting for the rest of summer and beyond. 

Ahead, see how fashion girls have been styling the trend on Instagram, and shop some of our favorite pairs so you can get the look. 

This trend is making us completely rethink sleepwear. Whether it's a big T-shirt or a loose button-down, these cozy briefs seem like the perfect counterpart. 

I recently wrote a story about "soft" trends, and this look encompasses the vibe tenfold. 

Now that it's getting nearly too hot for sweatsuits, swap your fleece-lined duo for something with a little less fabric. 

Try styling your low-rise jeans with a pair of high-rise briefs and a crop top. The look is definitely a throwback, but it's one that's trending once again. 

While pretty lace lingerie sets are worthwhile investments, right now, moveable cotton briefs and a matching bra seem more appropriate. 

By now we are surely all in need of new loungewear ideas, and this underwear and T-shirt look is hitting the spot. 

No pants, no problem. An oversize sweater has never looked better than it does with a pair of high-rise briefs and a sleek bun. 

Leave it to Kim Kardashian West (Skims) to design the perfect pair of briefs for women. This pair comes in multiple colors and a variety of sizes. 

Create your own matching set with a simple pair of white briefs and a ribbed white tank top.
