Argyle: It's Hip to Be Square

11/06/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

While others in Hollywood may be wild for animal print or retro ’80s fashions, we caught Madonna patterning herself in…Great Scot, preppy argyle! The singer, in New York on a media tour, made an arresting figure jogging in a V-neck argyle sweater that matched her green sweats. But she isn’t the only star loving argyle: new mom Britney Spears cut a slender — and stylish — figure in a black-and-white diamond-patterned vest in her first outing after the birth of second son Jayden James. Even country star Tim McGraw recently ditched his cowboy threads for a bright orange argyle vest while hanging out in New York City. Tell us: What do you think of the argyle look? Is it cool to be preppy or should this look be put on ice?Julia Wang

Love argyle!

I love argyle! Although it does remind me of my carefree days in junior high in the 80’s, I still live the print. One of my favorite outfits has an argyle sweater vest – I got it last year. The pink, purple, and white is just so pretty together. Keep the argyle coming!

well these sweaters are very preppy, I wore them in the 80’s……i like them but why bring back the preppy 80’s?

Gotta love it, and it has never gone out of style. I have seen many Saskatchewananians wear Argyle in the past years, Madonna and Britney just bring nationwide attention to it.

I don’t think Argyle ever really went away- a classic look. But interesting choice of clothiung to go running in. I did Brit’s sweater vest, though, tre cute!

Well, i guess argyle’s okay, but i would just keep to socks, preferably coverered by pants! i think a trend for your eyes only

Thank God argyle is getting big. It’s so classy.
