It is without a doubt that leggings are one of the best inventions to ever happen in the fashion industry. Not only are they practical and just a smidge sexy — which is not an easy combo to accomplish, mind you — leggings are just *so* friggin’ comfortable. It’s like after centuries of uncomfortable women’s clothing, leggings are the ultimate gift unto womankind.

So of course when you’re stocking up on back-to-school threads, leggings would be at the top of your list. They are the perfect base for any comfy outfit, after all. Not all leggings are created equal, however, and some tend to look a little less-formal (read: lazier) than others.

These are not those leggings.

This school year, make it your mission to invest in leggings that look uber-sophisticated, yet don’t compromise comfort in the slightest. And to get you started, we’ve scouted some pretty sleek leggings that will most definitely do the trick.
