If you struggle to keep all your socks organized, which can be a tricky job, it may help to store extra pairs in a chic basket. There’s no reason to stash heavy winter socks or special occasion styles all in one drawer when you won’t be reaching for them constantly. It just makes sense to have a specific place for pairs you’re not currently wearing. With that in mind, we rounded up a few baskets you can slide under your bed, hide away in a closet or keep on display, depending on your preference.
