I’ve alway loved the versatile look of pleated skirts because they can be classic, sweet or sexy. They’re chic in every length and color under the sun, and can easily transition from warmer weather to cooler weather with layering.

Pleats made a huge appearance on catwalks last fall, but judging from some of the top shows this year, including Project Runway winner Christian Siriano, pleats are still going strong for Spring 2012!

These are 18 of my favorite pleated looks!
