Aren't those just called leg warmers? Other characters like Hinamori Amu (Shugo Chara), Kagamine Rin and Len (Vocaloid), and Rock Lee (Naruto) are known to wear them.

In her case, they are Genie Leg warmers.

Not just leg warmers, because they are made of a lightweight transparent material. Most probably Silk or Organza fabric.

You can find some examples of them on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/549549557/custom-color-organza-genie-leg-warmers

I do not believe they are historically accurate, or as easy to wear as Anime characters make it look. More like something fantasy creators made to make Genies/Magical characters cuter/sexier. A bit like super huge swords, weighting more than a car, that heroes can lift effortlessly with one hand.

They go for the look more than the realism.

As per cosplay site, it's listed as 足カバー.

In short, it's more of a "foot cover", as opposed to something like loose/knee-high socks seen as a set with school uniforms.

I believe their purpose is partially for utility to cover the leg, but at the same time allow someone to wear more fashionable shoes or sandals. But then again I don't know what fashionable, maybe it's just for being a cute play on the magic school uniform motif.
