Indy Lifestyle Online
Shopping trolleys have been dogged by their granny reputation since the beginning, but now the fashion pack and those who hate carrying bags have seen the light. Professional shopper Dale Winton of Supermarket Sweep fame has one, as does glamour puss Lily Savage. The latest designs are anything but old fashioned: you only have to look at the fabulous selection now available in every high street to realise that. Choose traditional tartan. Choose black and gold patent. Choose whatever. But take the strain out of shopping -and roll with it.

1Brown and tan leatherette shopping trolley, pounds 19.99, by Marketeer Normally seen following little old ladies, but now equally likely to be seen at the heels of fashionable Prada devotees. Available from Argos stores nationwide (01908 600161).

2Red patent shopping trolley, pounds 65, by Darling Designs This one has the most sex appeal, for fiery femmes fatales. Available from Selfridges, Oxford Street, London W1; Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, London SW1. For stockist enquiries, call 01522 730392.

3Black Watch tartan shopping trolley, pounds 12.65, by Malroy

A traditional box-shape shopper, this trolley crams in the goods and can hold its form under duress. It will shop until you drop. Available from Argos stores nationwide

(01908 600161).

4Fuchsia pink nylon wheelie shopping bag, pounds 16.95, by The Holding Company This is more a bag on wheels than a trolley. It's very discreet and folds away into a handy-sized package, great for impulse buyers. 243-245 Kings Road, London SW3, enquiries and mail order 0171-610 9160.

5Black and gold patent shopping trolley, pounds 65, by Darling Designs Wouldn't look out of place with a Chanel suit on Bond Street - one for ladies that lunch. Available from Selfridges, Oxford Street, London W1; Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, London SW1. Stockist enquiries 01522 730392.

6 Green plastic see-through shopping trolley, pounds 90, by Designers Guild Definitely the funkiest of the bunch. Not for the shy, retiring type, though - your shopping will be viewed by all and sundry. 267-271 Kings Road, London SW3 (0171-243 7300).
