Gap's holiday campaigns never fail to get me excited for Winter dressing –– remember those commercials with the awesome dance routines? While this year's lookbook doesn't feature dancing models, it does showcase some pretty amazing layering pieces. I'm especially loving the focus on sequins and faux fur, and the cozy-cool Sherpa Moto Sweater ($128) has officially made its way to my wish list.

In terms of transitional wear, this bunch of sophisticated-cool J.Crew Looks We Love nails it. Sleek leather jackets paired with lean black pants, blazers tossed over luxe separates. Then, there are the colors to love: gray, cranberry, camel, and olive — all of our Fall favorites — piled up and layered on with sweaters and a taste of tweed. I know we've said it before, so forgive me for being predictable, but we're smitten with J.Crew. Click through for the nine looks we're crushing on for the chilly months ahead.

Before you start incorporating a whole new regimen, aesthetician Elena Capo of NYC's Cowshed Spa has a few tips on how you can prevent dry skin from happening in the first place. "If you have extremely dry skin, it may be because you are using the wrong product for your skin type," she says. To see the rest of her advice, just keep reading.
