Bump Your Boxers and Upgrade Your Shorts!

Confession: I used to be a big fan of boxer shorts as loungewear. Like, you know, the cute ones from places like American Eagle that are cut for girls and have fun prints on them. They were pretty much a sorority/college staple, and I probably still have a pair stashed somewhere.

But let's face it: college days are way long gone and it's time to grow up. Tons of loungewear designers are coming out with adorable shorties that are just as comfy as they are sexy, and you won't even give your boy boxers a second thought. Here are a few that really love:

1. Classic Collection Short by Brulee: luxe, soft jersey with a gorgeous gold button detailing. The cut of the shorts elongates the legs and a stretchy waistband keeps it comfy. What's not to love?
Classic Collection Shorts, $56. Available at Brulee.net, also comes in cream.

2. Better in Sweater Shorts by Trovata: fitted knit cotton with a tiny patch pocket on the right rear. The pink belt adds a touch of sweetness, though you'll probably want to remove it if you sleep in 'em.
Sweater Shorts, $48. Available at Anthropologie.com.

3. Talia Track Shorts by Fleur't: Super-soft, semi-sheer rayon/spandex blend with satin details to keep things comfy and feminine.
Track Shorts, $58. Available at Shopbop.com.

4. Silk Contrast Tap Shorts by La Fee Verte: stretchy silk comes in a gorgeous cream/black contrast design to keep things interesting. I'd say these are definitely meant for a special night in with your man, or when you've had a long, stressful day and need a pick-me-up when you come home. At this price, you might want to indulge yourself with both colors options!
Tap Shorts, $35. Available at Journelle.com. Also comes in black with cream trim.
