If you read the help for boxplot, it will send you to the help for bxp
for more information on custom plotting. ?bxp will offer you a vast
array of possibilities, including:

          whisklty, whisklwd, whiskcol: whisker line type (default:
              ‘"dashed"’), width, and color.

          outlty, outlwd, outpch, outcex, outcol, outbg: outlier line
              type, line width, point character, point size expansion,
              color, and background color.

accompanied by reproducible examples.
