We made it through February 2020 — and one confusing extra day of winter. How are we going to celebrate our leap year resilience? By
shopping the most wanted items from this drawn-out month. We're talking 29 of the best trending new product drops, steeply discounted flash sale finds, back-in-stock bestsellers, hidden gems, and tried-and-true essentials. Seasoned readers won't be surprised to hear that we've been busy little product bees, buzzing into their virtual carts and picking out the top-bought items from the past 28 29 days. But, if you're an R29 newbie, don't get those privacy feathers ruffled — because all this juicy audience data is completely anonymous and sourced from past high-performing shopping stories on site. Now, without further ado: all the trending fashion to beauty and home favorites that made this extended February feel just a little less dire. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.
