We offer several styles and shapes from which you can pick. Not sure what style fits best?
It all starts at the waist:
These dresses are made to fit your waist and then gradually flare out towards the hem. A-line dresses are excellent for minimizing thighs, hips, and midsections while pulling the eyes to your bust. This style of dress is a great fit for almost any body type. There's a reason why so many brides settle on A-Line dresses for their big day! With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.Shop Now
Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down. This is another kind of dress that fits many body types. From curvy to apple body shapes, the Empire draws focus to your bust and minimizes everything else. For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.Shop Now
A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.Shop Now
Once you know the kind of waist that fits your body type, it's time to find your shape. A few of our most popular dress shapes include:
Unless you're feeling extra sassy, chances are you're wearing a top at this very moment. Tops are garments that cover the top half of your body. At Copper Penny, we have an endless selection of tops in a wide range of styles - from basic tees to blouses and everything in between.

We only carry the most popular tops from the best brands and designers around the world.
Sometimes called broadcloth tops, poplins have classic characteristics and are often woven with an over/under weave. This kind of weave gives more substance to your top while also giving you room to breathe. Poplin shirts are typically soft and smooth, and are great for everyday business attire, some formal occasions, and for certain ceremonies. Sweet and feminine, our Bruna poplin eyelet bib top features ruffles at the sleeves and an eyelet lace yoke at the front. Pair your poplin with your favorite pair of shorts or jeans for a contemporary, relaxed look.Shop Now
Great for wearing solo or layered over a camisole or tank top, wrap tops are lightweight, versatile, and great for many different occasions. Wrap tops go well with jeans, maxi dresses, and high-waisted jeans or trousers. Our V-Neck Wrap SLV Top by Jayden is uber-popular at Copper Penny and the perfect choice for dressing down or dressing up. The choice is yours!Shop Now
For a dose of feminine fashion, be sure you add an off-the-shoulder top to your everyday wardrobe. A casual, sexy choice, off-the-shoulder tops have unique necklines that cut across your upper arms and chest, leaving your shoulders bare. The result is a flirty flash of skin, which elongates your neck and gives a relaxed, "daytime casual" look. Our Nola off-the-shoulder top pairs perfectly with shorts or even a flowy skirt and is hand-woven in Spain using Jacquard fabric.Shop Now
Who doesn't love a good tank top?! Tank tops are lightweight, versatile, and equally great for lounging in the yard or running errands on weekends. Tank tops lend an air of simplicity to your outfit and can be styled in endless ways. Take our Velvet Heart Victory Tank, for instance. This tank is a refreshing update on our classic sleeveless tank top, complete with fray details and a scoop neck. Throw in the fact that it's machine washable, and you have a wardrobe winner.Shop Now

If you’re looking for a fabulous place for a family vacation, then look no further than Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. It’s known for its incredible beaches and world-class golf courses. It’s a family vacation paradise comprised of several plantations.
You can rent a condo or a house in any of the plantations. There are also fabulous hotels located in Hilton Head. These would include the Marriott, Hilton and Westin Hotels. The best time of year to visit Hilton Head is between April and October. You can fly into Savannah Georgia which is about an hour away from Hilton Head. There is also an airport in Hilton Head.
We have enjoyed staying at Shipyard Plantation and Palmetto Dunes Plantation. ShipyardPlantation is much more rustic than Palmetto Dunes which has a more modern look.When our children were younger, we preferred staying at Shipyard Plantation becauseit’s easier for children to navigate the bike trail. Sea Pines Plantation is the largest of theplantations.
There are miles of white sand beaches in Hilton Head and beach activities are numerous.These would include parasailing and going on wave runners. If you enjoy fishing, thenyou can enjoy terrific fishing too. Private charters are available.
You can bring your dog(s) to Hilton Head. When walking along the beach, we saw manydogs happily walking with their owners. There is a specified time when dogs can runalong the beach without a leash. Jaxie, who belongs to my daughter and son in law lovesrunning along the beach making friends wherever he goes.
Bikers will love the numerous trails throughout Hilton Head. It’s easy to rent a bike. Notonly golfing, but tennis and Pickleball are also popular in Hilton Head. Pickleball inpalmetto dunes is so popular that I recommend that you call the Palmetto Dunes Tennisand Pickleball Center several weeks before even going to Hilton Head to sign up to play.in the very popular round robins. They also have clinics. There are 24 pickleball courtsand they are always full, especially in the morning. Miniature golf is also a popularactivity.
A favorite destination very close to the Shipyard Plantation is Coligny Plaza. You willfind numerous specialty shops and restaurants. One restaurant that we enjoyed on ourmost recent visit to Hilton Head is the Frosty Frog Café. If you are there when JesseRussell James is performing then you’ll be in for a treat. He’s talented and at the end ofhis set he sang a song with his 5 year old son and it was amazing. There is an ice creamparlour in Coligny called Frozen Moo that has 92 flavors. It’s a very busy establishment.Another restaurant that we enjoyed eating at was It’s Greek To Me which is located rightoutside of Coligny. The Owner’s daughter Maria gave us a history of this wonderfulrestaurant. Our waiter, James, was fabulous.
When you’re taking a walk along the beach in Palmetto Dunes and want to stop for lunchor just a drink, then The Dunes House is for you. You can walk right from the beach intothe restaurant. Pomodori is a fabulous Italian restaurant. It’s smaller and very popular, soyou should make a reservation. Alfred’s is another one of our favorite restaurants whichoffers German and creative American fare. A reservation is recommended.
The dress attire in Hilton Head is casual. No cocktail dress or tie and jacket is required.We always make it a point to stop at the Tanger Outlets (there is Tanger 1 and Tanger 2)located right outside of Hilton Head. Some of the stores located in these outlets includeBrooks Brothers, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Under Armour, Nike, and many moretoo numerous to list.
Before our vacation ended, we made a reservation to return in April 2024. My familyloves being in Hilton Head and I’m sure yours will too.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C (WTOC) - Despite the gloomy weather Friday, people are still enjoying their long holiday weekend on the beach.
Conditions windy with drizzles and there are lots of people are in their hoodies instead of swimsuits.
But despite the weather, Hilton Head’s public safety director says they are preparing for a busy holiday weekend.
Bob Bromage says lifeguards will be on duty. He encourages people to constantly check the weather forecast to make sure they aren’t caught up in the weather that’s expected to get worse tomorrow.
He says people should not be out on boats if the weather becomes severe.
It’s also worth a reminder alcohol is not allowed on the beaches in Hilton Head.
Bromage says there will be extra town and county workers making sure folks have a safe weekend.
“Town code enforcement officers will be out on ATVs and in their trucks on the beach as well as sheriff’s office deputies will be out on their ATVs as well and I believe there will be a marine patrol from the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office,” Bob Bromage says.
Several visitors say they’ll be making the best out of their trip. And Hilton Head Island crews will be out ensuring their safety.”
“We obviously wanted to go to the beach and have outdoor activities. Hilton Head seems to be great for bicycling and just being outdoors but if it’s raining all day, it makes it a little harder. We’re trying to pivot and think of some other ideas,” Chad Perusse said.
While plans for Chad Perusse and his family have changed since they left their home in Atlanta, other visitors say they’re still going to give their original itinerary a go.
Yolanda Miller and her husband are here from Greenville, South Carolina with friends celebrating 13 years of marriage.
“We’re going to do a dine in dinner sort of. We’re supposed to do snorkeling with the dolphins and all that stuff but hopefully that doesn’t change,” Miller said.
“Especially during the holiday weekend, we’ll have additional personnel deployed in the field, on the beaches, densely populated areas like Coligny Plaza.” Bromage says.
Bromage also encourages folks to constantly check the weather forecast and stay off boats if the weather becomes severe.

HILTON HEAD, S.C. (WSAV) — A Hilton Head Island high school teacher has been arrested and charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, Beaufort County deputies say.
According to The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office(BCSO), 34-year-old Jared Smith was arrested Tuesday, May 23. Smith is an orchestra teacher at Hilton Head Island High School, according to the District’s website. He has been with Beaufort County School District since 2013.
“We received a tip from a citizen late last week about Mr. Smith possibly possessing or viewing child pornography,” explained Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Major Angela Viens.
Deputies executed a search warrant Tuesday at Smith’s home on Hilton Head Island and collected evidence, including a phone and computer, for investigation.
“We developed enough probable cause to charge with sexual exploitation of a minor third degree,” explains Viens. “Which in South Carolina means you are possessing images or videos that display child pornography.”
“We don’t have any indication at this point, and I am clear at this point. That he is producing child pornography.”
BCSO’s Device Extraction Unit examined the phone seized from Smith’s home and found evidence of sexual exploitation of a minor. A warrant was obtained and Smith was arrested late Wednesday afternoon and remains incarcerated at the Beaufort County Detention Center.
The Beaufort County School System sent a letter out to parents Wednesday telling them Smith is “no longer employed” by the school.
Just as troubling, the letter goes on to say Smith also gave music lessons to kids from Hilton Head Elementary and the School for Creative Arts.
“At this point, the images we have viewed do not appear to be South Carolina or any of our students here locally,” said Viens.
Deputies say the investigation is ongoing and more charges could be forthcoming as they continue to investigate Smith’s computer for more illegal material.
Viens says the public can be key in cases like these.
“It may be something that makes your hair stand up. that you want to discuss further and holding that information may delay. So always reach out to law enforcement officer agency just to discuss it and it may open up an investigation just like this one,” said Viens.
To report these crimes, call the BCSO tip line at 843-255-3300 or CrimeStoppers at 843-554-1111 if you would like to remain anonymous.
