Ribbed Knits Are My Current Uniform On Days Where I Want to Feel Comfy and Sexy

There’s something both comfy and sexy about ribbed knit fabric, making it perfect for those days when you feel like you’re a trash goblin that’s only let out of its hovel for 48 hours a month, but don’t want to actually look like said trash goblin. When I throw on ribbed knits, they help me feel lazy in the aspirational way—you know, the lighting around you is always soft and you look like you could go frolic about in a field at any moment—not in the actual way I am lazy, which is finding Cheetos dust in my hair on a Sunday morning and still not washing it until Tuesday. (Okay, Wednesday. I am the trash goblin.) Shop ribbed knits for spring, below.

L*Space Freya Top and Lotta Lounging Pant — $110.00

If you spend some days wandering about your home clad in a duvet cover like some sort of ghost that has access to a Parachute store, it might be time to make the switch to this set. It’s incredibly soft, so you get that “I’m blanket, blanket is me” feeling without, you know, the use of an actual blanket. Plus, I can confirm, cleavage looks better in this top than a duvet cover for selfies.

Frankies Bikinis Croft Ribbed High-Cut One Piece Swimsuit — $195.00

I taught myself how to give myself a Brazilian wax during quarantine when no salons were open—meaning I bought a kit online, got wine drunk, and startled my dog with my screams every time I pulled off a strip. This seems like a fitting reward for myself (though, of course, you don’t need to be sans pubic hair to rock this swimsuit). It also comes in white but, just saying, come Halloween this one could be part of your “sexy candy corn” costume. Versatility!
