Hakama is a kind of kimono skirt, that are pleated and may or may not have a center divider.
While men may wear hakama on many formal occasions, nowadays women rarely wear these skirts over their kimonos except at their own college graduation ceremonies. Hakama are also worn by practicioners of Kendo (like me) during practices and bouts.

Today's kitsuke practice was kimono and hakama. I dressed Masako-san in the kimono and then the hakama. The hakama easy lesson, since I know how to deal with hakama thanks to Kendo.
