“Roads..Where We’re Going We Don’t Need Roads”
Anyone with a healthy love of movies, and/or all things 80’s knows that this coming Wednesday is an important day in cinematic history “30 years” in the making! On Wednesday, October 21, 2015 at 4:29 Marty Mcfly arrives “in the future!!” The beloved “Back to the Future” trilogy first thrilled audiences with the initial film of the franchise in 1985, and introduced us to Marty McFly, who travels back to 1955 in a Time Machine made out of a DeLorean created by his friend, Doctor Emmett “Doc” Brown. In the second film, released in 1989, but also partially set in 1985, Marty, Doc Brown, Jennifer and Einstein travel 30 years into the future to October 21 2015 to thwart an event that would unravel the future of the McFly family. This film gave us a hilarious view of what folks in the 80’s thought “the future” would look like. Well the future is officially now! Let Chicastic help you find the perfect outfit to wear to a screening of “Jaws 19” or shopping for a new Hover Board!
It’s almost impossible to pull off the classic Marty’s look without looking exceedingly masculine, which is totally cool if you’re going for that style, but not if you want to keep it softer and more playful. To make your own fun version of the famous Mcfly look, start with our corset in wine red. Replace the denim jacket with this navy blue cardigan.Add a fitted plaid shirt and the signature puffy “life preserver” vest. For a cute nod to the film, add this bolt of lightning ring, all 1.21 gigawatts of it! Add a pair of light denim skinny jeans and a simple pair of white Nike’s you’re ready to “make like a tree and get out of here.”
Jennifer is a unwitting participant in her trip to 2015, and finds out some shocking news about her possible future…. like getting married in the “Chapel O’ Love” and in-laws that tote re-hydrated pizza. To get her ’85 look, start with our floral print leggings. Next, add a long sleeve white shirt under our royal blue sleeveless cardigan. Put on some chunky socks and pair of plain white or grey sneakers and you’re ready for a day in Hill Valley!
Are you more of a fan of what everyone in 2015 is supposed to be wearing? This involves a mix and match of different patterns and materials. One way to recreate this look is to start with a pair of our abstract pattern leggings along with our red and black patent leather bustier. Next, add this multi-color triangle statement necklace. It adds hard lines seen in the film’s fashion, and the colors really make it work. Add a pair of shoes that’ll really pop, like these bright pumps. Then use the makeup brush kit to give yourself a futuristic makeover.
Let Chicastic get you out the door at 88 MPH!
