With winter approaching and the temperatures dropping fast, it is time to stop robbing your grandparents of their favorite sweaters.

Lets face it, the sweaters you snag from your grandparent’s closet are most likely not your style and in some cases very unappealing. With a little bit of time and cash, you can put your money into a sweater that you’ll want to wear 24/7.

In order for a sweater to fit the description of “perfect,” it must meet a few guidelines. A sweater must be comfortable and should keep you warm when the weather gets a bit harsh. No one wants a sweater that leaves them itchy and cold.
