The exclusions listed in 4:23 are very explicit, conversely inclusions are left to our own preferences.

4:23 The following women are prohibited for you in marriage:
Your mothers,
daughters,
sisters,
father's sisters,
mother's sisters,
brother's daughters,
sister's daughters,
foster-mothers who have ever nursed you,
foster-sisters,
your wives' mothers,
your step-daughters, unless you have divorced their mother without being intimate with her.

Also forbidden are women who have ever been the wives of your sons.

You are not allowed to keep two sisters in wedlock at one time except what has already happened in the past.

God is Forgiving, Merciful.
