The NYE Guide To Faking Commando

Not everyone has the style chutzpah of Rihanna, who's blessed with an internal voice egging her on to go ahead and wear that sparkly, nearly naked dress or a half-opened blazer as a frock. It's part of what makes her badass. If you're slightly less up for partying practically in the buff, you may need some clever underpinnings to accommodate Rih-caliber dressing. We're talking intimates that will suggest you're going commando when you're not, and we know an expert who can help.
Kerry O'Brien is the designer and owner of the seamless, sleek intimates line Commando. With an offering of underwear, bras, shapewear, and more, Commando aims to help banish VPLs — hence the name. To put the brand's expertise to use and help you finalize your NYE wardrobe, we asked O'Brien to walk us through the products to pair with the trickiest silhouettes. Five outfits solved, ahead.
