At this point, your 2021 wardrobe is probably looking a lot like your closet from anywhere between 1991 and 2005, between the bucket hats, the clogs and the anklets that have been taking over fashion over the past few months.

Though it's long had a presence in the world of athleisure, the skort is popping up across a variety of aesthetics and price points for summer.
