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

While it's true that the fashion industry has made significant progress toward size inclusivity in recent years, it's still nowhere near perfect. As the editor of a shopping-focused site, I do a lot of online window shopping in search of the best things to add to my cart, and while I've definitely noticed how the number of options offered in plus sizes has grown exponentially, there's still a noticeable 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 knit sets, alongside updated staples, such as easy slip skirts, Madewell's best-selling denim shorts, and so much more. With that, happy shopping!

Have you heard? Three-piece suits are set to be a big swim trend this summer.

Really into the at-home styling here.
