Pandora Sykes, the Sunday Times Style fashion features editor, knows a thing or two about styling tips. So when she instagrammed a pic of her lace-edged Pum Pum socks (it's a luxe sock label worn by cool gyals inc. 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 trousers (rather than a skirt), loafers (rather than a heel) plus dark colours rather than pastels, is what keeps the whole shebang appropriate for someone over the age of 12. So cool! And, winningly, so wallet-friendly.
