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

I thinks she looks as un-stylish as she always does. Hate the hair and hate the makeup, and the dresses she is wearing may be nicer than the onces she has worn before, but that does nok make them great. Still no style-Britney

I love it. It makes her look smart and sophisticated. She looks a thousand times better than she has lately! Keep up the good work Britney

Britney looks really cute, but why is Madonna jogging in any kind of sweater for that matter?

I think britney looks better with the darker hair colouring. her being blonde doesn’t really go with the new look she is trying to pull off.

Erika on

britney looks great…. Its amazing how she can look this good after looking so trashy before… You go girl.. Lovin the short hair looks great but long looks much better.

Amy on

Where can I find this vest?

rachel b. on

they must be twins because of the way they dress, act in public with the cameras and are mother’s.

Rachel on

I like it, but it should be worn at a school.

It’s high-school chic!
