5 Pieces of Clothing That My Husband and I Both Think Are Alluring and Cool

When it comes to fashion, my husband and I have relatively similar tastes. He's pretty oblivious to the latest trends and mostly sticks to timeless staples. I do the same but tend to lean a little more fashion-forward than he does. When it comes to what we deem alluring and cool clothing, there are some definite pieces we can agree on.

In sussing this all out we came to realize that our top picks are primarily elevated basics with some quintessentially "sexy" pieces also in the mix. One of the first pieces we agreed on was a slip dress. The timeless dress style puts so many of one's erogenous zones tastefully on display. Barely there cardigan sweaters are another piece we love, which happen to currently be having a major moment. The trend is a bit cheeky and a lot of fun for date night or an upcoming party.

Keep scrolling to peruse all five of our top striking and cool picks—they may already all be in your closet.

1. Oversize White Button-Down Shirts

There is nothing like an oversize white button-down shirt unbuttoned just so. It's classic and subtly sexy, plus the piece goes with everything from jeans to skirts.

2. Open-Back Dresses

We both don't think that the back gets enough credit when it comes to sensual dressing. A great open-back dress showcases the zone perfectly.

3. Barely There Cardigans

Barely there cardigans are having a major moment and we can't complain. This cardigan style evokes a feeling of a present that is ready to be unwrapped (consensually, of course).

4. Slim Straight-Leg Jeans

There's no denying the power of a pair of jeans that fit like a glove. For whatever reason (maybe the curve-hugging properties?) my husband and I prefer a slim straight-leg jean style.

5. Slip Dresses

Beyond the alluring clinging fit of most slip dresses, the dress reveals just the right amount of skin. Perhaps this is exactly why a slip dress is always in style.
