 Boutique Dresses Hilton Head Island, SC

A-Line 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.

Empire Waist

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.

Drop Waist

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.

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:

Fit & Flare Dresses in Hilton Head Island

Any clothing store for women in Hilton Head Island, SC, worth its salt, will have plenty of fit & flare dresses for you to try. This common-shaped dress is one of the most popular on the market, mainly because they look great on every woman, regardless of age or shape. A timeless choice, fit & flare dresses fit through the bodice and flare out just below your hip. This helps develop a balanced, slimming silhouette for most women. If you want to accentuate your best assets and hide everything else, ask our experienced fashionistas to show you some the most popular fit & flare dresses at Copper Penny.
Time to start doing your happy dance! Fit & flare dresses have very balanced proportions, making them a true winner for every body type. Women with athletic builds love this dress for the extra curves. Women with apple-shaped bodies love how fit & flare dresses define their waistlines. Because this dress already looks like an hourglass on the hanger, it will be a natural fit for ladies with such a figure.

Shift Dresses in Hilton Head Island

Shift dresses are typically rectangular in shape and tend to be comfy and forgiving since they aren't fitted. Also called a column dress, the shift dress is a great choice for polished professionals needing a conservative, fashionable outfit for work.
These dresses look fabulous on women with athletic, lean shapes and women with an apple-like figure. This kind of dress doesn't work well with a belt, so ladies with an hourglass figure may not be able to show off their curves in a shift. Try pairing this dress with a nice pair of heels for a beautiful new look!

Wrap Dresses in Hilton Head Island

Wrap dresses are one of the most popular styles on the market, because they give ladies of most shapes and sizes a flattering, fashionable dress option.
If you have an hourglass, apple, or generally curvy body shape, you're going to love wrap dresses. This style of dress offers a natural waist while placing emphasis on your bust. Wrap dresses give you a balanced silhouette and, with a knee-length fit, are great for any type of color or style, both day and nightwear.

How to Find the Right Fit for Your Women's Top

When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements. For most women's tops, the best areas to focus on are your hips, waist, and chest.

  • Hip Measurements: Measuring your hips is fairly easy. Take your measuring tape and use it to wrap around the widest area of your hips.
  • Waist Measurements: Take your measuring tape and place it at the very top of your hip bone. Wrap it all the way around your body. Try to keep your measuring tape in line with your belly button. For the most accurate measurements, stand up straight and breathe normally.
  • Chest Measurements: For an accurate chest measurement, take the end of your measuring tape and place it on the fullest area of your bust. From there, wrap the tape around your body, under your armpits, and around the blades of your shoulders. Then, wrap the tape tightly from the back of your body to the front, where you started.

Short-term rental owners divided over Hilton Head’s new regulations going into effect

Hilton Head’s new short-term rental ordinance was set to take effect Jan. 1, and property owners who rent across the island have shared their feedback, from cries of government overregulation to acceptance that something should be done to curb bad renters.

At the turn of the year, the town’s new ordinance will require short-term rental owners on Hilton Head to purchase a $250 permit for each property they rent for less than 30 days. Those who rent properties on their own or through a platform like Airbnb must also acquire a business license.

The ordinance is the first time the town has stepped directly into regulating short-term rentals on Hilton Head. With around 7,000 short-term rentals listed on Hilton Head in October, according to AirDNA, the industry is one of the island’s most lucrative. Town officials have previously said the sheer number of short-term rentals and conversion of units previously rented long-term has contributed to the island’s rising housing costs.

Island resident Mark Spurling has rented secondary properties short-term for seven years and said the regulation is necessary, despite disagreeing with government involvement generally.

“I would like to say that government doesn’t need to get involved and let this just be a transaction between a renter and owner, but one of those two parties is dropping the ball, so the town had to step in,” Spurling said.

Beyond licenses and fees being required — along with the 10% combined tax from state and local tax laws — the ordinance outlines safety and aesthetic requirements.

The owner or short-term rental agent must be available at all times by phone and able to be on-site or take “responsible action” within an hour of receiving a complaint. Trash storage must be fenced or screened to be invisible from the street, and parking spaces must be 9- by 18-foot “improved surfaces,” prohibiting parking on grass or straw.

The entirety of the ordinance is available on the town website.

Spurling said, ultimately, the ordinance should encourage renters to vet leasees more thoroughly to avoid renting to tourists who disturb neighbors. Property owners can’t control what renters might do, Spurling said, but can stymie bad behaviors through security deposits and fines.

“It holds the homeowner responsible, and ultimately, that’s really who is responsible, right? They kind of had it easy there for a long time, because they would just kind of raise their hands up and say, ‘Wasn’t us, it was the rental,’” Spurling said. “Now it makes the owner of the property responsible. They can no longer just say, ‘Hey, it wasn’t us.’”

But other property owners, particularly those who live off Hilton Head, said the ordinance is a burden on non-permanent residents who already pay greater property taxes than permanent residents.

“I agree with all of the things we’re doing here to make our neighborhoods much more fun and (have) a lot less problems,” one non-resident speaker at a recent ordinance information session said. “I agree with all the things that we’re doing, but ... it seems to me like taxation without representation.”

“Everybody complains about short-term rental people, and a lot of times they don’t realize that those short-term rental people are making their cost to live on this beautiful place a real bargain,” the speaker said. The speaker declined to be identified for this article.

Other island residents have expressed concerns online that the ordinance punishes smaller rentals for the actions of “party homes,” when some short-term properties are already regulated by neighborhood codes or property owners’ associations.

“Is it a perfect solution? I don’t know,” Spurling said. “But I think something needed to be done. While I do derive revenue and income from that industry, the negative impacts ... it’s just not what’s best for the community or specific neighborhoods.”
