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?

hhmm i dont think its just this one outfit that is the reason for everyones responses…Britney always looks horrible…its not that she has to “dress up” to go to the gym or supermarket but she at least try and look decent…im a 19 year old girl, in school, with only a minimum wage job and yet i NEVER look like this!…and clearly there r no cameras following me!…i always try and look at least presentable…just b/c i dont know who I will see while im out! maybe thats shallow or maybe its just having SELF WORTH!…i want to feel good when i go out not look like trash!…its pretty sad when a relatively poor girl (compared to brit) looks better then her!

Will someone tell her that she doesn’t have to wear a hat !! And can someone get her out of those horrible ripped fishnets? She CAN’T think she really looks good can she??

We really do live in a superficial world, and the comments that have been posted here just confirms that. I think that Brittney should be angry at the way the world has turned on her during the lowest point in her young life. I think that it must be very difficult to try to put your life back together while the world watches…and criticizes. I think that we should all leave her alone, give her time, let her heal and grow. I think that we would all be amazed at the outcome if we did.

She’s cute no matter what she wears.

Well, like we have all said, is anyone really surprised? People like her CRAVE attention, and when they are not getting it, they need to do something to get attention… Like all the stunts that she has pulled recently. I live in MIAMI and at club mansion this sunday, the M&M’s are performing, which is her. She needs to be home with her kids, who probably think she is just another babysitter by now… SO SAD!!! The fans will come and go, but her children are forever… She’s just weak..

So just wondering whatever happened to Brits other kid. I alwasy see her with seam Preston but never with Jayden James? I know neither are in the picture but it’s been bugging me for a while. Where is the other kid????

We have seen her lately with Sean Preston, but where is her baby? I don’t think I have ever seen a picture of him.

If I were a celebrity, you know what I would do to stop people taking my picture when I didn’t want them to? Hold my middle finger up in front of my face, or better yet, just cover my whole face with my hand. No one will want to print that! But the truth is that people like Britney, Paris, and Lindsay Lohan LOVE having their picture taken and being hounded by paparrazi. I totally understand why these ‘poor’ girls with their millions, their entourages, and their mansions still feel like they have such a hard life, and NEED to feel the attention, like someone cares about them (paparrazi). Truth is, I don’t care, on any personal level.. it’s just entertainment to me. But it is their REAL LIFE – and maybe they feel like their life is just one big t.v. show, someone always watching.. and that’s how they lose touch with reality, and real problems. Like America’s education system, starving people. People working 60 hours a week just to make ends meet, millions of homeless cats and dogs. They need to wake up – and donate their money to charity instead of putting it up their nose, or buying $4500 purses.

She just doesn’t get it!!!
Her fetish with ugly cloting lately is pretty strange…
I am sure once she gets a glimpse of herself in a mirror she will probably shave something else off!
