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?

I think Britney Spears new career could be “The Poster girl for Trailer Trash”

She usually looks fairly cute, but I’ve seen the pics and videos on X17 and the girl is HOUNDED by paparrazi EVERYWHERE she goes. She is bound to have an ‘off’ day! I always thought it was stupid when celebrities wore sunglasses at night – but after seeing some of those videos – I get it! It’s because of all the flashes from paparrazi cameras; they can’t even see. And while I am intrigued by the lives of some celebrities, I can’ t help but feel sorry for them. I know there’s probably at least one day out of the week where my outfit doesn’t really match or look cute. Luckily I don’t have 20 people snapping my picture, or have 150 people giving me their opinions about it!!!!

shes just wearing it for attention. we all know britney would prefer to wear more provacative clothing than that.

I think that we all need to get off of Britneys back. I think no matter what she wears she look’s Great. We all have had our moments. Britney has the money to do what ever she wants and wear what ever she wants to wear. God made us all different for a reason and who are we too judge anyone. Brintey Spears is a hudge Pop Star who made a few mistakes like everyone else. Does she not have the right to make a mistake. Thats how we all learn and grow. so leave Britney Alown Already she is going throught alot right now. Lets give her a little space and a chance to make things better. She deserves a chance. Let’s not forget she is a Person with Feelings just like the rest of us.

sorry to single you out, but, correction. check out some past blogs. we DO talk about mischa’s crazy clothing choices!(the current white juicy top being an exception). other than that, yes, you have a point.

Eww – what’s wrong with you people? You mean to tell me that she can’t dress down to run to the supermarket or to go to the gym? You people act like you forgot that she gets photographed wherever she goes and in every outfit she wears… Most of these comments are that she needs a stylist – you mean she needs a stylist to run arround for errands? Give me a break!

You people should be ashamed of yourselves.

And by the way, i think she looks cute.

Do you have anything better to do?, then trying to get pictures of celebrities at there worest so you can try to make them look bad.. WHY? It don’t make you look better!! it make all of THE PAPARRAZI look like “ASS’S”!!!!!!!!!

She looks like a mess. Whats been worse though is the ripped fishnets and cheap hooker look she’s been wearing to the dance studio. I’m not sure why anyone is interested in britney anymore. At her age the 15 minute lipsyncing shows she’s been doing with the not so great dancing seems so old. It’ magazines like People that still seem to idolize her and want to make her a star.

I do agree with Yvonne, I think she has some serious depression problems or something wrong with her mentally. She has been acting strange for a long time now. But I absolutely don’t agree with some peoples “poor britney” theory. She choses to be in the spotlight, she choses to hang out and shop at “hollywood hotspots” where there are always photogs. She could just as easily go somewhere more remote if she is so bothered by getting her pic taken.

I think we might be the same person in two seperate bodies. I always enjoy reading your opinion, and i always feel that i couldn’t have said it better. Good work girl!

As for Britney, i am totally rooting for her now. Mostly cause i feel sorry for her. I think she is still dressing the way she did when she was big!! Know what i mean? Back when trucker hats were in…i mean the whole look looks like something Paris Hilton wore 3-4 years ago. Maybe she is trying to get back to her old self. But this outfit is not the way!!
