Like everything in the world of Fashion, sweaters, too, can make or break an outfit. So in order to avoid the fashion police, look through my list of winter 2013 sweater trends! And I guarantee, you will be safe from fashion prison.
1. Aztec Print Sweaters
Aztec prints will always be in style every winter, which makes these sweaters a must-get because you can wear it annually. This pattern is very fun and colorful. When wearing a aztec sweater, it is best to wear neutral colors underneath. Doing this will make your sweater pop and attract the right kind of attention.

The texture on fuzzy sweaters are unique and the color combination is endless. Fuzzy sweaters is truly a must have this winter.

Fringe is simply a fascinating texture on a sweater.
