USB3 to HDMI?

I have a MacBook Air with a USB3 port (female).  I'd like to use an external monitor to make the screen bigger; it's an LG with the options of a HDMI, DVI-D or D-SUB ports.  What equiptment do I need to transfer the video from the laptop to the screen?  Something like the j5create - USB 3.0-to-HDMI/DVI Display Adapter to connect to the laptop and then a male-male HDMI to HDMI to connect the port to the monitor?  Thanks so much for anyone who can help.

Does your Macbook pro have an adapter to plug in something like this?

Thanks!  Unfortuntely no, it doesn't have one of those.  Is that what you would recommend?  If so, do I need anything else to go with it?

Re: USB3 to HDMI?

Great, thanks Michael. I see these are USB type C but I can look on bb.com for type 3.0. I appreciate your help.
