A: Dear @DelaneyGates,

Little did I know we had a cardigan editor here at Lucky, but we do and her name is Noelle Sciacca. Noelle—like me, art director Lisa Steinmeyer and Anne Keane—was in a shrunken cotton cardigan the day I asked. So go with shrunken! A big cardigan has its beachy/comfy place, but it’s never as outfit-enhancing and special as a little shrunken one. I like the shirt billowing out underneath. Even if it makes me look pregnant! “If you want flattering and feminine, do a V-neck,” advises Anne. Cardigan editor Noelle says the cutest are Banana Republic, pictured here. Also J.Crew, Agnès B., Prada and Miu Miu are all consistently fantastic, cardigan-wise.
