Editors' Picks: The Clothes and Accessories that Make Any Man the Sexiest Man Alive
SHAWL COLLAR SWEATER
Andrea Lavinthal, Style and Beauty Director: When it’s cold outside, the hottest thing a guy can wear is a wool shawl collar sweater. The masculine chunky knit says, “I own a cabin upstate and I chop my own wood for the fireplace,” while the elegance of the collar’s face-framing silhouette says, “I’d love to have dinner with your parents at their country club.”

Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: I have to agree with Harry Styles: These shoes make my heart race. Just look at one photo of Justin Theroux in skinny jeans and a pair of Chelsea boots and tell me you don't feel the same? So whether or not the men in your life are boot enthusiasts or just want to dip their toe into the trend, this J.Crew style is a wardrobe classic.

A CLASSIC WATCH
Alex Apatoff, Deputy Style Director: Most guys don't go for a lot of accessories, so what they wear on their wrist is often their big chance to express themself, stylewise. And for me, no self-expression is sexier than the clean, confident vibes projected by an unfussy, timeless timepiece.

Lindy Segal, Style Social Media Editor: I love a man in a nice button-down, but there's something irresistible about a knit henley and a good pair of jeans. However, there are rules: One (or maybe two) buttons must be undone, and it's gotta be fitted.

A SIGNATURE SCENT
Jackie Fields, Beauty Editor: Jennifer Aniston may prefer a man’s own “eau de sweat" — but I’m a sucker for a hint of cologne. This particular scent is sure to get the attention of your potential SO. It contains hedione, "a synthetic jasmine-like note that is inked to having a stimulating effect on the area of the brain that releases of sex hormones in women,” explains Farah K. Ahmed, President & CEO, IFRANA (the association that represents the fragrance industry). If you need even more convincing: Sex symbol Steve McQueen wore the fragrance.

CAMO FIELD JACKET
Sarah Ball, Style Editor: The camo print and utility style of this jacket makes me automatically think of Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones (even though I'm pretty sure he doesn't wear camo in the move at all), but paired with skinny jeans or a tailored pant, it's the perfect combination of action movie hero and well-dressed cute normal boyfriend.

CALVIN KLEIN BOXERS
Kami Phillips, E-Commerce Editor: The sexiest kind of pants a guy can wear are jeans. But, they have to be ones that fit just right — they can't be too baggy or too tight which is what makes these slim style jeans from Club Monaco the perfect fit.

LIGHT WASH DENIM JACKET
Sharon Kanter, Deputy Style Director: There's something just inherently rockstar about a denim jacket, especially in this light-wash hue, and there is no brand more classic than Levi's. The functional design says, "Yes, I can change a tire," while also saying "being this cool comes so effortlessly" at the same time. Quite the feat.
