Vestigial Skirt

A skirt so tiny and useless, it's only there to let you know she's a girl.

Do We Have This One?

You know the one -- The Pink Ranger's skirt. She's wearing a skintight bodysuit, she does NOT need a skirt at all for modesty or any other purpose, except as a Tertiary Sexual Characteristic.

Does not apply to really short skirts that still provide coverage over bare skin (no matter how little), or skirts that are embellished enough to count as a fashion statement -- Sailor Moon's skirt doesn't count, but a miniskirt worn over pants does.

Also does not apply to 'skirts' that are really just an untucked shirt, ala Hey Arnold!

    Yep, we've already got this one, see: Dangerously Short Skirt.

    Dangerously Short Skirt is different -- that's a skirt that's ridiculously tiny, but still providing some degree of coverage (and thus value, even if that value is just to be a vehicle for panty shots). This is a skirt that is similar in appearance, but provides no additional benefit to the wearer because the skirt is being worn over something else.
