14 Pretty Party Shorts to Wear NYE 2014!

You’ve been wearing fancy cocktail dresses all holiday season, why not amp up your New Year’s Eve outfit with a fun, cute, and sexy pair of party shorts?

If you’re in love with your legs and the temperatures aren’t below zero, you can surely get away with bare legs and even open toes. But if you’re a bit more conservative OR surrounded by snow, add a pair of tights under your shorts and pair them with boots or pumps with at least a two inch heel or higher to elongate your legs. Dress your shorts up with an equally festive top or let them stand alone by pairing them with solid colors from head to toe. A blazer that hits about mid short will even out proportions and also give you a modern tuxedo look, with shorts of course! So ditch your dresses this New Year’s Eve and pull on your party shorts instead! Below are 14 fabulously shimmery, sequined, and sexy shorts to ring in 2014!

  • 14 Pretty Party Shorts to Wear for NYE 2014! 1 of 16

    Ditch your holiday dresses this New Year's Eve and pull on a pair of fabulously shimmering party shorts to ring in 2014!

  • Cool Gold 2 of 16

    These pretty tan/gold sequin party shorts with a colorful geometric patterned waistband go more cool than classy and look great paired with a slouchy top (as seen here) and bulky boots. Add tights if you're feelin' a little bare.


    Kyra Sequin Shorts $198 at Free People (available in tan and black)

  • Check It Romper 3 of 16

    I LOVE this sequin romper with a large tetris check pattern on the shorts and simple black top with black sequin details on the sleeves, collar, and waist. A romper makes it easy so you don't have to find a matching top!


    French Connection Tetris Check Sequin Romper $288 at Dillard's

  • Jacquard Culottes 4 of 16

    These metallic jacquard shorts fit a little looser in the leg, much like culottes, which makes them more flattering on many body types. Pair them with tights and a long tapered blazer for a sophisticated NYE look.


    River Island Jacquard Embellished Short $63.52 at Asos

  • Shadow Boxer 5 of 16

    Go for the gold in these silvery sequined boxing shorts! With a loose and comfy fit, they're bound to be flattering. A leather jacket and boots makes them a bit more modern while adding an edge.


    Lovers + Friends Woodstock Shorts $123 at Shopbop

  • Multi Striped Sequins 6 of 16

    The muted colors of these sequined shorts make them bold yet quiet at the same time. I'd probably pair them with head to toe black and a deep teal overcoat to match... though a rich burgundy would look great with them as well.


    Rory Beca Jah Sequin Shorts $51 at Revolve Clothing

  • Leather 7 of 16

    These fun sak waist leather shorts can be dressed up or down. The loose fit of these makes them comfy and flattering if paired with the right items. I'd opt for a long sequined/shimmering blazer in silver or gold that hits about mid-short.


    Leather Shorts with High Waist Detail $136.12 at Asos

  • Copper Plated 8 of 16

    I love the pretty copper color of these straight fitting copper sequined shorts. They're just so pretty!


    Dolce Vita Kiara Copper Sequin Highwaisted Short $61.60 at

  • Striped & Sequined Playsuit 9 of 16

    Ahhh, this is just so cute! It's like a dress but so much cooler! If you're uncomfortable with the open back, you can always wear a simple T underneath or a turtleneck and tights if you're in colder temps.


    Playsuit with Sequin Stripe Embellishment $81.67 at Asos

  • Leopard for the Win 10 of 16

    I'd opt for these classic leopard shorts because I can wear them in seasons to come! 


    Baum und Pferdgarten Nico Shorts in Leopard Print $270.42 at Asos

  • Black: Check! Silver: Check! 11 of 16

    Oh these are so cute!!I LOVE the check print on these and the boxer fit. The price is amazing too!


    findersKEEPERS Women's Moment In Time Short $36.50 at Amazon

  • Sophisticated 12 of 16

    These sweet and sexy mesh sleeves and hems remind me of something Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl would wear. It's ladylike yet flirty and just perfect!


    PETITE Exclusive Shorts With Mesh Insert $50.82 at Asos

  • Floral Skort 13 of 16

    The famous overlapped, pointed edge skort {shorts that look like a skirt} but I love the floral print on this version. A skort is a great way to ease into party shorts if you're a little more worried about too much leg showing.


    Skort In Bold Floral Print $63.52 at Asos

  • Curvy Culottes 14 of 16

    Culottes are by far more flattering than regular shorts and they don't have that "ride up" feeling if your legs touch in the middle, as most of ours do.  A black pair can take you from NYE into next fall, but for a party, pair them with shimmery tights or a sparkling top and/or blazer for a festive look!


    CURVE Exclusive Culotte In Jersey $21.78 at Asos CURVE

  • Go Baroque! 15 of 16

    A little tight for my taste, but on the right body, these gold and black baroque inspired shorts are perfection! With a hint of Gatsby, I'd pair them with a bit of a deco feel and maybe size up for a looser fit.


    2B bebe Sequin Baroque shorts $34.95 at Amazon
