Here are 11 petite dresses that are perfect for your New Year’s celebration

Ah, New Year’s Eve — that one night of the year when getting all dolled up, hitting the town, and drinking bubbly like prohibition just ended is acceptable worldwide. We want to make sure everyone feels their very best that night, so to that end, we’ve done some internet grazing to find the perfect petite dresses for your New Year’s Eve celebration.

Half the fun of the night is taking the time to put on your finery and do up some full beat makeup while listening to your fave tunes. Those of us who are a bit on the smaller side should be able to pick from the very best, too! It can be defeating to try on dress after dress only to have the sleeves be too long or pants dragging behind your heel. We don’t always want to shell the money to get everything perfectly tailored, you know?

Thank goodness for petite sections! It’s such a relief to just be able to try a dress and have it fit well! Take a look at some of the dresses we found and loved:
