It's official: Fall is here. While we love updating our space with cozy home accessories like sheepskin rugs and woodsy candles as soon as the leaves start changing colors, the chilly season also calls for decorating with practical storage solutions in mind. Between coats, boots, and umbrellas, there are a lot of cold-weather essentials that need to be stashed away as soon as you walk through the door. (Not to mention all the extra throws, books, and bottles of wine that need organizing.)

Although the phrase "storage solutions" probably conjures up images of utilitarian containers, hooks, and bins, we've curated a collection of organizational options that are both stylish and functional (yes, it is possible). From a trendy metallic catchall basket to a space-saving blanket ladder, here are some ways to declutter for fall that'll make you look more organized than you are. Ahead, shop fall storage solutions that'll pick up your coatrack's slack.
