Not too long ago, I was in the market for a pair of sparkly shorts to wear around the holidays. Problem was, each one was more expensive than the next. So, regrettably I didn't have a pair to wear around for New Year's, but a month later I'm still after the style. So, when these BCBG Pleated Metallic Shorts ($30, originally $98) surfaced on sale, I scooped them up. Not only will they make as much of a statement at next year's NYE fete, I'd argue that they're even better-suited for Spring. Just picture them paired with a draped white tank and a chambray button-down — Jenna Lyons would be proud.
