It's for keeping a skirt out of the spokes. This kind of thing can frequently be seen on older (1930-1960) women's bikes.

It's called a skirt guard. They used to be more common.

Very common on old-school European ladies bikes, eg. Pashley

Mayer grandmas bike had this, or almost all bikes that time. It prevents the skirt getting catched by the spokes and sucked into the wheel. (Skirts Werner much longer back then)

There's a reason for all the "bungees". It's a skirt guard. See link.

Not only for keep ladies' skirts from catching, but gentlemen's overcoat hems.
The bungies are a brilliant idea for this, btw.
