Baby’s Shorts in Dirty Dancing

As cute and fashionable as Baby was in the 1987 film, her fashion choices did not precisely fit the fashions of the 1960s when the Dirty Dancing storyline takes place. The cute denim shorts that Baby wears should in actual fact be a denim skirt. These shorts only really became fashionable during the 1980s (when the film was created). It really is a minor detail that was overlooked in a wildly popular and successful film that is still well-loved and celebrated today, over 20 years later.
