If it's useless trivia, there's no need to put it in. It doesn't even relate to the trope anyway, as it doesn't cover the required proper personality.
Useless trivia: [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2016-01-30/cold-snap-in-japan-prompts-debate-over-proper-schoolgirl-fashion/.98135 Niichi tweeted artwork suggesting that this is the right style for a Japanese schoolgirl to wear in extremely cold temperatures]].

[[folder:WebComics]] * The magical girl webcomic ''Webcomic/SleeplessDomain'' combines and contrasts this trope with ZettaiRyouiki to signal the five main characters' defining personality traits. CoolBigSis Sylvia, {{Tsundere}} Sally and {{Ojou}} Tessa wear ZettaiRyouiki grades A, B, and C respectively while {{Tomboy}} Gwen wears 3/4 height gym socks. Team peacemaker and ShrinkingViolet Undine, on the other hand, is always depicted wearing Proper Tights With A Skirt, be it with her school uniform, her civilian clothes, or at [[spoiler: Sylvia, Sally, and Gwen's funeral.]] [[/folder]]

Not only are almost all the examples on this page Zero Context Example but a lot of them actually don't fit the character type for this trope. I've removed what I can.
* Sen Yarizui in ''LightNovel/BenTo'' sports this fashion, likely to preserve her modesty as she [[KickChick kicks the snot out of her opponents]] during the [[MundaneMadeAwesome battles for half-priced bento]].

** [[DarkActionGirl Revy]] wears this in the Japan arc in ''Manga/BlackLagoon''; perfectly understandable, since her normal {{Stripperiffic}} clothes wouldn't work well in a Japanese winter.

* The female pilots wear the leotard variation with their combat attire in ''Anime/{{Dangaioh}}''.

** Miku Izayoi's Astral Dress incorporates this.

* Mikuru Asahina wears this during the winter months in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' (as seen in ''Disappearance'' with her school uniform), as does Yuki Nagato in the spinoff series ''The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan''.

* Rei Miyamoto from ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'' appears to be wearing this briefly in episode 3, no thanks to a minor visual ContinuitySnarl. She actually wears ZettaiRyouiki.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': ** As in the video games from which it's adapted, Serena sometimes wears this. ** Also worn by Dawn on occasion, including with an ElegantGothicLolita dress in ''The Rise of Darkrai'' and her PokÚmon Learning League uniform.

* Sakuya's winter uniform in ''Anime/TenchiInTokyo'' includes black tights.

[[folder:Fan Fiction]] * Mitsuuru Takahashi from ''FanFic/PrettyCureHeavyMetal'' is a rare male example at times. Sakura Cobain also wears white tights under her school uniform during the colder months (of course, since this is Isuten Junior High we're talking about, the same outfit also includes a black leather jacket, possibly the only way to make tights look any cooler--other than [[TightsUnderShorts using shorts instead]], of course). * Another male example is Haru Nagato, the male maiden from the upcoming ''FanFic/PrettyCureStrangeHappenings''. Yumi's thigh-high red stockings go so high they barely rise above the lower edge of her uniform's crinoline skirt, leading some to mistake what she's wearing for tights. Also, every Cure that doesn't wear TightsUnderShorts wears this in Cure form, and Cure Necro herself sports [[TightsUnderShorts Tights Under]] ModestyShorts. * Super Cure Romance from ''FanFic/PrettyCureHollywoodStars'' would be another male example, but in Cure and Super Cure form is [[SuperGenderBender actually biologically female]]. * Both Meran and Korii in ''FanFic/ShiningPrettyCure''. The former is a rare male example, and both do this with tunics. * While Ichiban High School enforces this in ''FanFic/FutariWaPrettyCureDragon'', one of its students, Ryan Lee, is notable as a male example; another student, Susan Chan, also wears this as Cure Fortune. Yet another student averts and defies this trope, instead going for ModestyShorts.
