This season, it's all about the jacket. 

This is actually good news for lazy fashion lovers, hard-working bosses and do-it-all moms because getting dressed during fall of 2018 doesn't have to take a lot of time or effort. In order to perfect your look, you need to pull out your best fall basics. We're talking black turtlenecks, white T-shirts, denim and ankle boots (just to name a few). Then, once you put on a comfortable pair of jeans, a cute T-shirt and a pair of boots, simply layer a stand out jacket on top—it's that easy.

Case in point: Charlize Theron's red carpet ensemble. The Tully actress won big with a black pleated midi skirt, white top, knee-high boots and printed blazer from Dior. While her entire look, including her makeup, is drool-inducing, E! News learned that her overall look centered on the jacket.

"The outfit inspired her beauty look," Dior makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani said in a statement. "With her hair up in a textured up-do, I wanted to do a dark lip to go with her jacket, but in a darker, deeper shade that her jacket."

When it starts to get cold, a long jacket makes all the difference. Like Selena Gomez, you can wear it in chilly weather with a mini skirt and sneakers. Or, when the cold kicks in, you can swap the sneakers for over-the-knee boots and pair with a sweater dress or denim.
