Hold on to summer as it winds down by updating your underwear drawer with a pair of trendy purple underwear. Commonly thought of as the color of royalty and power, purple underwear is the perfect pop of color if your underwear wardrobe is looking a little sad and grey. It's bold without being assuming, and the more jewel-toned, the better -- in fact, we prefer the "ultra-violet" look overall.

Try the ever-classy Wood Hip Brief in Royal Purple for a clean look. It has a white waistband with the brand's name stitched in gold on the right hip.

For a more formal pair of purple underwear, try Calvin Klein's featured boxer brief with dual-tone purple, and a regal (yet sporty) sense of style.

Cocksox and 2(X)IST add orange to the mix in their purple underwear update -- and it looks fantastic, in our collective humble opinions.

Papi's Microfusion Performance Brazilian Trunk utilizes pink and flat seams for a more subtle contrast in their purple underoos. The pink stitching shows the purple underneath, and the wide waistband combines purple and pink.

What do you think of the purple underwear look? Do you own any jewel-toned pairs? Let us know!
