First, let me make this clear: I don't care if other people want to swear off underwear. If you want to air your vagina in the honeyed summer breezes of public transportation or your cube farm employer or the law school library, I would never move to interfere with your desire to do that. In America, everyone has the right to life, liberty, and the ability to air out their frilly lady flaps, that's what I've always said. But for the love of everything holy and good, please don't pressure me to skip the skivvies.
According to a piece that ran on Nerve today, clothing cut in such a way that wearing underwear is impossible stands to be the hottest trend of summer 2014. All of the cool kids are doing it. Kendall Jenner is doing it. Malin Ackerman is doing it. Gwyneth Paltrow is doing it. And meshy, cutout-y, high-cut fashion designs that were once appropriate exclusively for the clubbiest of clubs are now cool to wear in the street. "It's official: we are all going commando this season" proclaims Nerve.
