* Paintings of JoanOfArc often show her in armor with a skirt (even though one of the ways the English got her nailed for heresy was her insistence on wearing pants (both because of practicality of riding and to prevent rape while imprisoned).

A dress that is lightly to heavily armored, and thus would fit in both a social gala and an epic melee. The form of the dress [[TropesAreFlexible can range from]] a frilly gown and petticoats also accessorized with armor and/or weapons, to basically a suit of armor with a skirt.

Naturally the ladies wearing these kinds of dresses are almost always {{Action Girl}}s, particularly [[LadyOfWar Ladies Of War]], {{Badass Princess}}es, or other tropes related to SilkHidingSteel (although this trope makes the "hiding" moot). If any other girl ends up wearing this, expect her to fall over almost immediately, if she can even move.

* In ''[[Literature/TheHalfbloodChronicles Elvenborn]],'' the protagonist's mother has a dress made of a million bazillion tiny metal plates with diamonds over them. Though she isn't shown fighting in it, it is implied to be very old and come from a dangerous time. The protagonist, who is a military expert, theorizes that "it could turn a blade."
