If New York Fashion Week has you thinking your own wardrobe could use an overhaul, you're not alone. With spring right around the corner, it's the perfect time to spruce up your look. Now imagine if you could put together several cool and casual outfits using many of the same pieces for prices that won't have you still paying them off well into next year?


Personal stylist and founder of Simply Chic Styling, Elaine Wang Yu, recognizes busy moms still want (and deserve!) to look their best, but they also don't need to break the bank. So the fashion maven put together a spring collection of 12 mix-and-match essentials, priced at less than $100 a piece, that will put a little "spring" in your step and your closet this season.
