Layering is a big trend this winter season, and Elle Macpherson is one celebrity who knows how to play the layering game. Her mixture of fur, leather and denim looks effortless and city-chic. But, with all those layers, recreating Elle’s outfit could get pricey, fast! I’ve managed to put it all together for under $200. And with so many versatile layers, you are sure to add much than a $200 value to your winter wardrobe.
