1. Clutch Handbag
The hottest shape of the season is the clutch, in everything from slim rectangles to antique-looking handheld bags.
2. Patent Handbag
Whether you go mirror smooth or funky with a bit of crinkle, patent is the best finish for handbags right now.
3. Mini Handbag
The natural answer to last year's giant bags? The mini, of course. Stash a minimum amount of stuff in your tiny bag and opt for a cross-body or handheld style.
4. Metallic Handbag
They've been in and out for years, but metallic handbags are now hotter than ever.
5. Convertible Handbag
Wear it on your shoulder, toss on the crook of your elbow or hold it by your hands; this bag goes the distance in versatility.
Supermarket giant, Tesco, which offers a green point to its clubcard customers for reusing their bags, said its bag use is down by 50% since launching the program in August 2006. In total, it estimates it has saved 3bn bags in the process, with 1.8bn bags saved in the last year. Rival Sainsbury's, which also offers extra loyalty points to customers, wouldn't disclose how many bags it has saved, but said only that the plan was successful.
