Modern Hakama

Japanese women wore Kimonos in the old days. When the Meiji era came, Hakama, which only men wore at the time, became for women too. Hakama is divided in the middle like pants and is easy to move in than a Kimono. Stylish girl students tied their hair with ribbons and rode their bicycles wearing Hakama because it was popular in those days.
Since purple is a noble color and nobilities used it, maroon colored Hakama were very popular. Kimono and Hakama became flashy and it was too much work to wash and take care of it, so women started wearing clothes after that.
