I'm a Plus-Size Editor and Can't Wait to Get My Hands on These Chic Fall Finds

As a shopping editor, I have nightmares about a few things, one being New York City street rats. The other all-consuming panic I have is finding a cute piece of clothing, looking at the size range, and realizing, yet again, that it doesn't cater to the average American woman—currently a size 16.

Thankfully, as more and more brands catch on and create cute clothes to fit everybody, the availability of on-trend, chic fall clothing items is soaring. After scrolling for a few hours during a late-night TV binge, I have to admit that I did heavy damage to my credit card when I stumbled across these inclusive finds. 

As a plus-size editor, I always feel tempted to buy cute clothing whenever I see it. Let's face it—when is it ever going to exist again? After years of hoarding and donating clothes season after season, I'm sure these elevated fall basics will last. Below, shop the 36 best plus-size fall clothing items.
