I'm using Duolingo to learn Spanish. One of the first words that it taught me was "elegante." I'd consider this a quirk of Duolingo, but when I learned French in high school "élégant" was also a fairly early vocab word.
Do native Spanish speakers say "elegante" often or at least more than native English speakers say "elegant?" In English, outside of certain contexts (an "elegant" math proof), the word is used sparingly and, more often than not, ironically. When would it be appropriate to use "elegante" in Spanish?
