As the holiday party machine cranks into high gear, it’s time to dazzle.

After all, if you can’t rock a little glitz at this time of year, when can you?

Gold — and not just the kind you trade in for cash — is making a strong showing for the festive days ahead in chunky jewelry, embellishments on gowns and chic, Chanelesque suits and downright sassy shorts and tops.

Sequins and sparkling stones are sizzling on everything from kicky boots to dramatic formals.

And, while there’s some color — we always love a great holiday red — much of the season’s shine is playing out against black.

So while you can never go wrong with a LBD, don’t be afraid to try one with full-skirted flare or that plays off against white for a head-turning treat.

At recent shows at the annual Trianon luncheon and Ochsner’s Style Night for a Cause cancer fundraiser, models showcased women’s styles from Chatta Box, Angelique Boutique, Aria, Head Over Heels, Femme Fatale Boutique, nk boutique and Park Lane.

We were bedazzled.
