The days of matching sweatsuits may feel like a fever dream at this point, but ribbed-knit sets are here to stay. Equal parts laid-back and put together, these coordinated separates feel polished without compromising on comfort. The lightweight material is also perfect for the transition to spring since it offers just the right amount of warmth without any of the bulk you get from winter knitwear.
Ribbed-knit styles abound right now, with the cozy material being used for all kinds of silhouettes—and in dreamy colors guaranteed to unlock a serotonin boost. Best of all? With a ribbed-knit set, you’re not limited to wearing just the full ensemble. You can easily swap a long-sleeve cardigan for a button-down for a cozy-chic look, or sub in wide-leg pants for jeans when going out. Ahead, shop the 12 best ribbed-knit sets to add to your closet now.
Best Ribbed-Knit Pant Sets
Pack up your turtlenecks and chunky cable-knits—it’s time to make room for these cute ribbed-knit cardigans and their coordinating high-waist trousers. (Bonus points if you get a flare one with a slit.) We’re especially fond of cardis with little collars, which can be worn with the bottom buttons undone for a surprise abs reveal.
Best Ribbed-Knit Shorts Sets
Whether you’re in need of a new lounge set or a look to wear while checking errands off your list, these shorts sets are perfect for both. Skims’ crop top and boxer briefs quickly became the world’s WFH uniform back in 2020, but are still as cozy today as they were then. Prefer a punch of color? Try a three-piece set with a knit sweater, tank top, shorts—then finish off with a matching scrunchie. All are buttery soft and add a touch of luxe to your loungewear collection.
Best Ribbed-Knit Skirt Sets
We couldn’t let you go without throwing some skirt options into the mix. These sets are ideal for occasions when you want to feel comfy but still look like you put in the effort—and look great paired with chunky gold jewelry and an oversized blazer. Wear a teeny baby blue cardigan and slit skirt for brunch on the weekends, or go straight from desk to drinks in an off-white set.
