Pleated Skirts: Celebrities Show Adults Can Wear Long, Short & Mini Versions Of The Summer Staple (PHOTOS)

Pleated skirts were all over the spring 2012 runways of Prada and Carven, so it's no surprise that celebrities including Dakota Fanning, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and more have been spotted in the style.

Thin accordion pleats of all lengths (from mini to maxi) are not only on-trend, they are also practical and flattering. While larger pleats can add volume to your lower half, thin versions (like the ones pictured below), lightly skim the body to show off your shape without excess material.

Personally, I am a fan of pleated skirts and will be channeling Emmy Rossum's look for evening and Taylor Swift for day. Whose skirt length do you like best?
