No matter what our overstuffed closet and empty bank account tell us, we still think we have nothing to wear. Maybe it's because those jeans we bought last week aren't hitting our ankles perfectly or that skirt from the sample sale is a bit too big — or, we could always just blame it on the steep discounts forcing us to buy everything in sight. Sigh, there's nothing worse than a wardrobe of truly great pieces that don't fit right.
That's why we asked our associate fashion editor, Willow Lindley, for ways to revamp our wardrobe and work it to the max. From a cool trick to hem your jeans sans tailor to planning outfits on the Samsung Galaxy Note® 3 + Gear™ — an arm-candy-like wearable device (the better to snap pics with) that works in tandem with its smartphone counterpart — these tips will be your go-to when you "have nothing to wear."

"Dressing for the weather is key, especially during the winter when things can get bad real fast. I'm always cold, but who wants to wear a big, black puffer every day just because mercury levels have dropped? No one. So, when most of what people see you wearing is your winter coat, don't be scared of being boring — just get into layering."

"I love wearing statement coats with a thin puffer or even a moto jacket underneath. This way, you won't have to choose between practicality or pneumonia. I always check, double check, and triple check the weather on the Galaxy Gear™ before I leave my apartment. If things are looking colder than expected, I can just swap out my jacket and not worry about my outfit being able to keep up with me all day long."

"I adore summer dresses and can't bear to store them away, so I love layering one over a thin turtleneck for winter. I played around with different combos of this transitional outfit and chose the best one from the gallery — all without having to change out of the outfit I was wearing. Pretty easy, right?"
