We have a huge selection of women's dresses in Raleigh, NC, from stylistic sheath dresses to drop-waist styles that will make your girlfriends jealous.
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. If you're looking for the highest quality women's tops in Raleigh, NC, you just hit the jackpot!
With that said, finding the right top for the right occasion is easier said than done. However, at Copper Penny, we make finding the right top fun. Whether you're looking for a top that makes a statement or you need a classic button-down for a subdued style, we've got your back. 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

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- It's Triangle Small Business Week, but despite the area's rapid growth, many of those businesses face new challenges amid rising interest rates and uncertainty in the banking system.
In the wake of another bank collapse this week, access to funding remains top of mind for many of those small business owners.
Victoria Scott-Miller owns Liberation Station Bookstore, which is set to open its first brick-and-mortar location on Fayetteville St. in Raleigh in June. She says high interest rates and lack of access to funding were part of her decision to remain a pop-up business since opening four years ago.
"Part of the reason why we even started out of the trunk of our car was a lack of access to capital," said Scott-Miller. "We didn't know that four years later when opening our first brick and mortar, that we would bump heads with some of the same issues like high interest rates and lack of accessibility to funding."
Scott-Miller credits the upcoming Fayetteville storefront to a crowdsourced funding model, saying alternative financing created an opportunity that didn't exist with the big banks.
"As contributions were rolling in, we were able to get that funding in real time, which allowed us to start building out and checking off some of those goals that we had in order to lead us to our opening," she said.
Andrew Ullom, owner of Union Special, says he's felt the financial pressure recently, too. Between coping with an interest rate around 10% and navigating higher grocery costs, Ullom says their bottom line is hurting.
"Compared to last year, I am paying an additional manager's salary in interest this year, and it is a massive hit to cash flow," Ullom said.
Ullom described the phenomenon as being like "a heavyweight fighter punching in both directions."
But events like Triangle Small Business Week are an opportunity to grow exposure and get access to resources. Jennifer Martin, Executive Director of Shop Local Raleigh, says city and county provide great outreach to business owners, but it can still be a lonely profession.
"We forget that these people that are running these small businesses, they don't have the big 401K, they don't have the corporate backing," Martin said. "They don't have traditionally a lot of investors. And so they truly are the ones having to figure it out."
Martin says rising rent costs are also a factor, causing more businesses to shift to pop-up or mobile business models.
"That is one of the things that we're also seeing," said Martin. "A lot of people go mobile, you know, to try and help because right now it's just too expensive. To have that brick and mortar right here."
Business owners we spoke with say Raleigh remains a great place to plant business seeds, in large part due to those resources.
Triangle Small Business Week began on Sunday, and runs through this week.

A new report shows Downtown Raleigh gaining ground in hotel revenue, retail openings and food and beverage sales.
The Downtown Raleigh Alliance has released its market report for the first quarter of 2023, showing largely positive numbers for the district. The period runs from Jan. 1 through March 31.
The hotel sector downtown took a massive hit during the Covid-19 pandemic with business travel (typically a large portion of business) disappearing and general traffic staying slow. But recent months have seen leisure travel spike with events, concerts and conventions returning and business travel trickling back in.
In the first quarter, average monthly hotel room sales revenue increased by 36 percent year-over-year, according to the DRA report. January alone saw a 69 percent increase year-over-year. Along with room occupancy seeing a boost – Wake County's occupancy rate was 72.6 percent in March, up from 68.6 a year ago but below the 2019 figure of 76 percent – the increase is in part due to average daily rates for hotels across the country skyrocketing over the past year.
$1,000 a night for a Raleigh hotel? You must be dreaming!
Downtown Raleigh currently has 408 hotel rooms under construction – including the dual-branded Hilton (NYSE: HLT) property on Davie Street that is nearing completion and the Hyatt (NYSE: H) property in Seaboard Station. Another 1,269 rooms are proposed or in planning across seven different projects, according to the report.
Downtown Raleigh saw 17 new storefront openings in the first quarter, with six businesses closing. The openings include new tenants coming to mixed-use developments like Seaboard Station, Smoky Hollow and Bloc83.
Closings include The Rockford, J Lights, The Factory and Wicked Taco. The Vault, a vintage clothing store by a local entrepreneur, also closed.
“Storefront openings and re-openings are far outpacing closings, which is a good sign of our storefront economy recovering,” said Bill King, president and CEO of the Downtown Raleigh Alliance. “We still see a gap in recovery among our districts, but we have seen leasing activity clearly increase in the Fayetteville Street district, as already seen in the storefront openings and coming soon list in the report.”
Downtown Raleigh currently has 89,145 square feet of retail space under construction across 16 developments.
Average monthly sales for food and beverage downtown increased 4 percent year-over-year, with a total of $22.3 million in Q1. Glenwood South accounted for 39 percent of all food and beverage sales, followed by the Fayetteville Street district with 22 percent, Moore Square district with 19 percent, the Warehouse District with 16 percent and the Capital District with 4 percent.
Downtown now has 11 craft breweries and distilleries and more than 160 restaurants and bars with outdoor seating, according to the report.
The report also tracks pedestrian traffic, which evaporated during the pandemic – particularly in the Fayetteville Street district – and was slow to rebound on weekdays given the shift to remote work.
Average daily pedestrian counts downtown increased 9 percent year-on-year, according to six counting sites tracked by the DRA. Visitor visits in Q1 did not change from the previous quarter, staying at 4.3 million.
“Holding steady with visitors in Q1 compared to the previous quarter is a good sign of downtown continuing to draw more people,” King said. “And these numbers do not even include Dreamville, so we are excited to see how those numbers come out when we release the next quarterly report.”
