It's about time to start indulging in the retail therapy that is the winter closet reset. With that comes brand-new puffers, layers, and brand collabs galore.

These collabs go beyond gimmicks, and are more like collectables, with most of them limited in quantity—meaning you have to act fast before they're gone. Don't stress, we rounded up all the fashion launches you need to know about this month.
Read on for the best fashion launches of December 2022.
