Playing With: Skirt over Slacks

Basic Trope: A character (usually a girl) wears pants under skirt.
  • Straight: Alice wears pants under her dress/skirt.
  • Exaggerated: Alice wears this all the time, such as wearing a skirt with her pajama pants.
  • Downplayed: Alice wears short shorts under her dress/skirt.
  • Justified: She does not want her underwear to be shown whenever the wind blows and flips her skirt up.
  • Inverted: Alice wears a skirt underneath her pants. It results in odd bunching and as she admits "isn't very comfortable".
  • Subverted: Alice decided not to use this new style.
  • Double-Subverted: ...Until she remembers Bob having a bad habit of flipping them over.
  • Parodied: Alice wears long pants and shorts, with a long dress and a short skirt.
  • Zig Zagged: Alice changes her mind constantly, up to and including changing her outfit multiple times during a day.
  • Averted: Alice wears only her dress/skirt, without any pants underneath.
  • Enforced: A school that uses this as their dress code.
  • Lampshaded: "So Alice, skirt and shorts again?", "Yep, the Moral Guardians don't want kids looking at my butt!"
  • Invoked: Alice always remembers to put on her pants first before wearing her skirt over.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied:
    • Bob pulled down Alice's pants.
    • Alice decides that if she's wearing pants, the skirt isn't necessary.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed: Alice wears the trope until she realizes that guys are ignoring her because they think she's a lesbian tomboy, and that it covers up her ass and legs.
  • Reconstructed: Alice stops wearing it, but the attention makes her feel socially awkward, so she starts wearing them again.
