What does a trendy handbag look like?

Can anyone describe or show me which handbags are "in" for teenagers? I have to get one as a gift and I don't use one so no idea what is in.

topshop has decent quality for reasonable price. My friend's 13 year old wants juicy couture or louis vuitton (like kate has in the latest ad)- dream on!!! but she will settle for topshop! If it has plenty of zips and pockets it is balenciaga or marc jacobs-esque, oversized and it can be a chloe copy. Just have a flick through vogue or something and see which ones you like the look of and I bet you will find something similar there. Just don't pick anything too 'funky' because a teenager will think it's crap!!! (most grown ups are out of touch!) My advice would be to go in and ask a sales asst which ones have been good sellers for the late teen/early 20s and you will be onto a winner! GOOD LUCK!

Sorry, forgot to say I'm in Germany so we don't hav ethose shops but the idea with the shop assistant knowing what is right is good if I can get them to respond (german shop assistants could learn alot from their UK equivelants)
