It all started in the 60's with these "Go-Go" dresses that I am sure many of you remember.
Now, in 2011, this trend is making a huge come back! Designers like Roksanda Ilincic, Reed Krakoff, Marcus, Giuseppe Zanotti, Dries Van Noten and many more are featuring colorful get-ups on their runways. While some people believe that this trend never left, it can be said that it was "pushed aside". Most people have been settling for neutrals or blacks because it is considered "more comfortable" and "safe". However, seeing this trend on models has given many people the courage to feature it in their own closet, and stores like H&M, Forever 21 and others are also featuring pieces to achieve the perfect color-block look for the everyday person.
