What Do You Think of Britney's '80s Look?

05/16/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Britney Spears has gotten her famously toned physique back in a major way, so we understand the impulse to flaunt it in her figure-revealing clothes. But the singer’s retro outfit does seem like a little much for just a day of shopping — the shorts are sweet and the colorful sneakers are perfect for summer. But the hat? The airbrushed tank? The, uh, knee-high tube socks? Color us confused. We vote for more chic trench coats and stylish dresses. Tell us: What do you think of the singer’s latest look?

Not a Britney’s fan, but she looks as she’s having a major
ups and down symptons of depression, this happens a lot, I
have friends, who immediately shows these signs in their
clothing and if she’s calling for attention, it’s not
a fashionable one. Poor girl. Forgot see her features in
the picture. Yvonne

She’s so ridiculous ! Every day is another ugly look… Poor Britney, is there nobody who can help her ?

I dont think Britney has done anything right in a long time. She dresses just as wacky as she acts. My suggestion would be to go low key, not be so obvious, grow up and be a good parent to those poor kids.

She looks trashy…HATE her outfit.

There is nothing about Britney Spears that is likable anymore. I think she is so trashy anymore. Magazine give her exactly what she wants which is publicity. I think that everyone should quit putting picture of her all of their magazines and quit giving her all of this attention. Then maybe, just maybe she would settle down, become a respectable person, and become a mother to her children.

FUGLY. Britney really is just a train-wreck these days. None of it works – its a complete miss-match and I’ve seen her wearing those socks and shoes two days in a row from photos online!
Gross girl!

I think she pulls it off well. She looks adorable !

I seriously can’t stop feeling sorry for her. She looks a hot mess. I was watching a Britney special on television on Sunday and she was sssssssssooooooooo pretty. I mean although she has her own personal style, her clothing did not always consist of mini this and mini that. I’m not saying that when you become a mother you need to turn completely conservative, however come on. Some of these clothes are just way out of hand. Now I love the retro look and all, but everything about this outfit is wrong. Hello, orange, yellow, blue, pink, those sneakers, yikes, she looks like a fruit basket. Sorry Brit.

that`s not even `80’s. that`s plain sad. she looks like a big retarded kid who tried to dress on itself. i think she should crawl into a hole and wait for death to come, she is complete mess and makes me sick.

Did I say No?
I applaud individuality but there is still such thing as bad taste. This is just plain trashy. What happened to the sleekly coifed and stylishly dressed Britney of her David Letterman surprise appearance? It’s time to grow up Britney. Forget being a rollmodel to millions of young girls – it’s time to be a roll-model for your two sons.
