Pandora Sykes, British fashion editor extraordinaire, knows a thing or two about styling tips. So when she Insta'd a pic of her lace-edged Pum Pum socks (it's a luxe sock label worn by cool gals including Rihanna and Lana Del Rey), we sat up straight and paid attention. Perfect for those kind of awkward "can I go bare legged" days and also excellently nostalgic, there's much to like about this. Rly important to note here, too, is that Pandora's choice of pants (rather than a skirt), loafers (rather than a heel) plus dark colors rather than pastels, is what keeps the whole shebang appropriate for someone over the age of 12. So cool! And, winningly, so wallet-friendly.
