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!
