Baby, you’ve got style

By  |  6 Comments

“Nobody puts Baby in the corner!” Undoubtedly one of the most famous movie lines ever, along with one of the most popular movies of all time. A movie that sparked nearly every living, breathing girls’ desire to take up ballroom dancing and learn moves like Baby!

We love Baby’s cute style, so for today’s fashion feature, we’ve picked our favourite scenes from the movie to show you how to update your “Baby Style” and give your outfit a modern edge – perfect for summer 2012!

Dancing On The Bridge

Starting with this look: Baby’s casual bridge-scene style. Proven time and time again, denim shorts will never go out of style! Update your “Baby Style” to 2012 with these cute ripped shorts (Mr Price) and this season’s hottest neon trend shirt (Woolworths RE:).

Depending on your style, we love this outfit worn with cute yellow flats (Mr Price), or for a real update on Baby’s style, these high top cream Converse (Zando) are fashionable and fun!

Lover Boy

We love Baby’s cheeky attitude from the Lover boy scene and her style matches her fun personality!

Now, while we’re not big on exposed bellies (unless you’re surrounded by sand and sea), we did find the perfect little striped grey and coral vest (Edgars) that has crop-top-like knots to match Baby’s knotted shirt.

Paired with Bermuda shorts (Mr Price) and picking up on the coral from the top, we think these rouge red tekkies (Puma at Zando) are perfect for an afternoon stroll or lunch with the gals.

Time Of Your Life

We can almost guarantee that you’ll “have the time of your life” in this little show-stopper!

Nobody can forget the infamous dancing scene where Johnny swirls and twirls Baby around and her dress just flows through each move like it can almost hear the music.

We’ll we’ve updated Baby’s little number with this white sheer chiffon, very on-trend hi-lo hem dress, also known as “mullet dress” (Asos). Or, if you want the full swirl-and-twirl package, then you can’t go wrong with this pastel dress (Forever New).

All that’s needed is pair of metallic, killer peep-toes (Aldo) to take your outfit to 2012.
