I'm just going to come out and say it. Yes, I love a compliment here and there. There's something about putting together an ensemble I love and then hearing "great outfit" from someone that makes me smile just a bit. If you, too, are on the same page, I'm here to bring you a bit of compliment-worthy sartorial intel. 

There are a few key spring trends that I think will add a forward twist to an ensemble and feel particularly luxe. As a result, they will help get those outfit double takes. The beauty of these trends is that they can be purchased at a variety of price points. Sure, you could invest in designer iterations of each if that's of interest, but there's also a smattering of expensive-looking styles that ring in at $150 and under.

Keep scrolling to check out the luxe-looking spring items that will earn you compliments. You'll notice visual inspiration to showcase the trends, complete with affordable shopping picks to get each look. 

Full Skirts

Yes, miniskirts are still present, but the full skirt is back in a more noteworthy way this season to bring an elegant spin to any ensemble. Wear a ball skirt with your favorite basic, and I guarantee someone will ask about it.

Tailored Blazers

You'll also notice the full-skirt trend in this look, but the cinched-in blazer is also noteworthy. Boxier styles are still present for spring, but tailored silhouettes feel particularly chic and eye-catching.

Metallic Pieces

Want to really make a statement? Embrace one of spring's key trends—metallics. The interesting aspect of this trend is that you can wear it in many different ways, whether that's through separates or accessories.

Three-dimensional florals continue to be a favorite among our team because the simple detail can instantly elevate even the simplest of outfits. Try one as a choker (pictured here), in your hair, or attached to a piece of clothing.

Pops of Red

You've probably already noticed throughout this story that red is one of the trending hues of the season. A pop of color in the form of a belt, socks, or tights feels so right now and will get that compliment.

Leather Jackets

A leather jacket (note all the expensive-looking faux-leather styles on the market) adds texture and brings a cool factor to a look. It's effortlessly chic.
