But his iconic mid-80s duds truly stood the test of time.


How to Dress Like Marty McFly in ‘Back to the Future’


When Marty first shows up to help Doc with his time travel experiments in a Hill Valley mall parking lot, he is layered up in a jean jacket and a puffy red vest jacket. He wears a white, checkered button up shirt underneath, as well as a pair of jeans and white high-top sneakers. Marty can’t seem to get enough of red jackets and blue jeans. In both the 1950s and 2010s stops of his time hopping journey Marty wears year-appropriate versions of his iconic 80s style. Learn how to make your own DIY Marty McFly costume below:

About Marty McFly


Marty McFly is a Hill Valley High School student who unexpectedly embarks on a time travel journey with Dr. Emmett Brown who has discovered the secret to time travel and uses a suped-up Delorean to traverse spacetime. Upon teaming up with “Doc”, Marty travels to several points in time where he interacts with members of his family, past and future, in ways that have unintended consequences for his own life.


Marty and Doc first travels back in time to 1955 where he interferes with the budding romance of his father and mother while simultaneously giving birth to Rock & Roll by playing a rendition of “Johnny B. Goode” which inspires a young Chuck Berry. His next time travel adventure lands him in 2015 where he helps his grown son Marty McFly, Jr. ward off hoverboard-riding bullies while inadvertently wreaking havoc on his own timeline by allowing a sports almanac to get in the hands of family antagonist Biff Tannen. Having rectified previous time-traveling mistakes, Marty and Doc travel back to the Old West in 1885 where Marty finds himself handling more drama with his family tree.
