What do you call the skirts that the girls are wearing?
The fabric is tartan plaid, but in the US, that's the "mini."
Here we also call tartan skirts "kilts" by analogy with real kilts. Those would be goth mini kilts, because of their black frills.
And the girls, by extension, are called 'tarts'.
He's just kidding (all girls that age in Japan wear such lovely stuff, and fewer than 50% are real tarts).
