Style Icon: Baby in Dirty Dancing

I love Dirty Dancing. I have no idea how many times I've watched it. It was required viewing for every slumber party in the early '90s. Baby is so great, and I love her '80s/'60s style. Especially when she is carrying a watermelon.

But eventually, she's up in the air in that pink dress looking amazing because "No one puts Baby in a corner."

Before she made that sweet lift, however, she had to practice the routine in some great and comfortable summertime dance wear. Cropped shirt? Check. Jean shorts? Check. Little Keds? Check and check.

It's best to wear white when practicing a dance routine in a lake with Patrick Swayze.

And you don't have to have a dance partner to practice! Just break it down on a bridge in a tank top and short shorts!

Or, you could have two dance partners to get it right! And a '60s printed pink playsuit. Oh that playsuit! I watched this movie with a friend years ago, and he absolutely hated it. He spent the whole time saying "It's so '80s. How is it so '80s?" But I think that '80s take on the '60s look is part of its charm. And Patrick Swayze. That's the other part of its charm.
