In case you haven't noticed underwear is definitely having a moment. Earlier this fall Bella Hadid hit the streets of NYC sporting a leather jacket, a pair of UGG’s and some loose-fitting underwear, our recent Highsnobiety cover star Julia Fox also stepped out in spring wearing her briefs with an untethered version of a Canadian-tuxedo and Kylie Jenner wore a pair of tighty-whities to attend the LOEWE’s SS23 show.

While we’re certainly not suggesting you brave the outdoors in just a pair of boxers or panties, we fully support the rekindled attention these stars are bringing to underwear. But, you may ask, if you're not going all-out and wearing it as pants, why should you care what your underwear looks like?

Because underwear is the first thing we put on our bodies. Ostensibly, it's our entry point from shapeless meat-sack to style-conscious and self-aware individual. It's how our partners see us, as we make coffee in the morning to get ready for another day of WFH from the couch. Reduced to our nakedness, nice underwear is how we start the fashion conversation with ourselves, so, it's highly worth considering a more cognisant approach to what's going on beneath the drip.

Now I have nothing against the classic all-white pair, but depending on your preference black may be the better option. The contrast logo along the waistband gives the briefs a nice touch.

Sometimes more actually means more. It's hard to go wrong with a set of boxers, especially when it comes with options like a monochrome pair for your average days, and a paisley one for when you're really feelin' yourself.

Loose fitting boxers are great if you prefer to keep things, you know, loose, but there's something to be said about undies that offer a bit of compression. These Diesel boxers fall right into that category and offer comfortability, and protection in a low key, black and red package.

A fresh pair of boxers is a gift to yourself that keeps on giving, but three pairs? Calvin Klein knows exactly we truly need, and the waistband even comes in three colors so no one thinks you're sporting the same pair for days.

I highly doubt the term 'tighty brownies' will ever catch on (for good reason) but Tom Ford's offering is a pleasure for those of us that can't stand things like white socks or undies.

With all the love that Off-White™ has received before and after Virgil's untimely passing, I'm surprised its briefs haven't become a trend yet. Seriously, step up your underwear game in these and sag just enough so everyone knows you're wearing luxury.

The tighty whitey upgrade we didn't even know we needed is here, and offers a bit of breathing room opposed to the conventional keep it all together approach. Although these may be asymmetrical for aesthetic purposes, I'm sure they function just the same, if not better than most traditional pairs.
