Our fashion coverage of leggings this summer has not been in short supply, but believe it or not, there are still plenty of facets to discuss when it comes to these curve-hugging friends of ours.

However, today we’re getting fancy and telling you how to do leggings runway-style.

Though usually reserved for a casual weekend errand or yoga class, the F/W 16 catwalks dispelled these legging stereotypes and showed us how to incorporate them into stylish ensembles we can wear every day. That’s right; comfortable leggings and a cool outfit are not mutually exclusive. See below for examples from labels like Céline and Valentino, and if you need a new pair of leggings to add to your wardrobe, shop our picks.
