2021-12-25 05:57:08 By : Mr. Yoli Zhang

The things we buy have a lot to say about who we are and who we've been. Alone, they're a window into personal style; across wardrobes, they're a snapshot of the trends, designers, and movements that shape fashion at large. Case in point: the top 25 fashion products BAZAAR readers added to cart this year.

Some of your best-sellers reflected 2021's inescapable trends; others were editors' hidden Amazon gems that became your go-to's. Whether you were shopping for timeless essentials–like the best everyday earring and the reliable work bag—or a seasonal designer treat, one thing was consistent: You wanted the best of the best. Look back on what you loved most, and gear up for a new year to be spent in style, with the 25 fashion products BAZAAR readers couldn't stop shopping in 2021.

Five months later, we're still carrying this little bag everywhere.
