Rounding Up Underwear Styles for 2011 – Part 1

With December well under way and the New Year just around the corner, we thought it was about time to round up the key underwear styles of 2011 to see which trends we embraced and which fads came and went.

April 2011
In April 2011, the designer underwear fashion arena embraced pink as the new black. Although the major designer mens underwear brands already had their sights on hot pinks and bright fuchsia designs it was the sight of international singing celeb Justin Beiber wearing the typically feminine colour that converted shoppers to the new trend.

Amongst the designer men’s underwear brands that held pink close to their hearts were fun brand Luis and Juke with their 1960s Pink Cadillac Boxer Shorts and Bjorn Borg with their Short Shorts For Him Raspberry design.

May 2011
May was the month that saw a move away from bright, bold colours with the introduction of natural or nude shades. Although men’s shapewear brands such as 2(x)ist had included nude shades for a number of years, other designer brands began to launch boxer shorts and men’s briefs in this colour. Amongst them were Gregg Homme with his Nude Scene Briefs. However this trend was one of those fads that came and went with very few other designer underwear brands following suit.

June 2011
It wasn’t a particular underwear style that came about in June but more the way the underwear was presented. June was the month that saw packaging as one of the key trends in men’s underwear, especially when it came to underwear gifts. Henri Lloyd offered boxer shorts such as the Newry range in minimalist boxes that were embellished with the designer brand name. Other designers offered similar selections such as Frank Dandy’s Positive Typo Boxer Gift Set while Calvin Klein even offered boxer shorts packaged in a tin.

Plenty of these trends of men’s boxer shorts are still available to buy online so if one of these trends takes your fancy, there’s still time to buy them.
