• Dirty Dancing Movie Night

    This post today is sponsored by Skinny Cow

    Who doesn’t have fond memories watching Dirty Dancing growing up? It’s a classic from the 80s and the perfect throwback to plan a fun girls movie night around, especially with 80s fashion being so hot right now. I first asked my talented fashion contributor, Ashley, to help put together some ideas on what to wear:

    1. Shirt | 2. Shorts | 3. Shirt | 4. Leggings

    Here are four outfit ideas, inspired by Dirty Dancing: Signature Baby, Dirty Dancing outfit, Time of Your Life outfit, and Camp Life.

    5. Dress | 6. T-shirt | 7. Shorts | 8. Belt | 9. Shoes

    What would you wear? After watching the movie again last week (it’s been a while!) I had a super huge crush on Baby’s wardrobe of high-waisted pants (and Patrick Swayze of course). I remember in the 90s thinking she dressed ‘sooo 80s’ (cue rolling eyes), and now I love it! Funny how fashion has come back full circle.

      I love dirty dancing! Those outfits all look super cute

      Super hot! I think I could answer all these questions, even without watching the movie in a few years. I have almost the whole thing memorized I loved it that much!

      Love baby’s style. Great inspiration!

      I don’t know how many times my friends and I watched Dirty Dancing in grade school, but it was an impressive number. I think every sleepover for a straight year (and that’s when we weren’t listening to the soundtrack.) I never really thought about Baby’s style, but this wardrobe is great!

      I love this! Mom my forbid me from seeing this movie when I was a girl… but then I snuck a screening at a friends house. However the guilt overwhelmed me and I confessed!

      So I see that all the outfits have numbers, but no links? I’m loving the long denim cut-off’s…do you have a source?

        Oh, whoops! Just added in the links. Thanks for letting me know, miggy!

      The camp look is so cute! Love that heart tee and high waisted jean shorts! I need to go watch it now…

      What a brilliant idea and I would so wear the “signature baby” look. Wish you both a great day. xo

      What a fun idea! I’m without question a “Signature Baby” person. But I love all the looks and food inspiration. I hope you and Ashley keep these coming!
