The Best New Arrivals to Hit the Internet, From Size L to 6XL

new spring arrivals



While it's true that the fashion industry has made significant progress towards size inclusivity in recent years, it's still nowhere near perfect. As the editor of a shopping-focused magazine, I do a lot of online window shopping in search of the best things to add to cart and while I've definitely noticed how the number of options offered in plus sizes has grown exponentially, there's still a noticable gap between what's available in straight sizes versus plus sizes—despite the fact that studies show the average dress size in the U.S. is between 16 and 18 (and not a size 2 as the fashion industry would have us believe).

So to prove that you can dress in stylish and on-trend items regardless of your size, I did what I do best and put together a massive shopping list of the internet's best new spring arrivals to get you excited for the season ahead. In the below roundup, you'll find items that hit on some of the buzziest trends like cutouts and micro-pleats alongside updated staples such as relaxed suiting, my personal favorite pair of Levi's jeans, and so much more. With that, happy shopping!

If you fell in love with the top in the first image, you're not alone.

The perfect jeans for spring and summer, if you ask me.

A basic you'll wear over and over and over.

The cutout trend doesn't just end with clothing, FYI.

Meet the pleating micro-trend that makes every basic way more stunning.

The name alone had me convinced, but the inclusive range of nude tones was the icing on the cake.

Mid-length shirt dresses are by far the most wearable of all the spring trends, and this one is especially fresh.

Yes, even your blazer deserves a wardrobe upgrade for spring.

These could easily pass as designer.

Tennis ball green was a theme we spotted all over the spring '21 runways.

We love knit polos so much we went ahead and made our very own version.

My all-time favorite jeans now come in this spring-ready light wash. You know what to do.

Terrycloth fabric has been bubbling up lately, and I'm definitely taking note.

Pretty sure it doesn't get more perfect for spring than this.

I'd style this with the above jeans and ankle boots for an easy and casual 'fit.

Do you also lose it over creative basics like this, or are you normal?

H&M collaborated with Lee Jeans and the result is this cool shirt jacket.

Simple, everyday dresses are trending, and given how versatile they are, I can see why.
