  1. overskirt

    An overskirt is a type of garment that is worn over a skirt, dress, or other lower body garments. It is often a separate piece from the underlying garment and may be of a different length, style, or color. The overskirt can be shorter than the main skirt to show off the design or trim of the latter, or reach the ground for a smoother silhouette. It was a popular fashion trend in various eras, particularly in the Victorian period.
