It's a blue and black dress with light passing through it to make it look white and gold.

If you're having trouble seeing the blue and black, make a VERY small circle with your index finger and thumb and look at the dress through that.

White and gold was how I saw it at first, now I can't unsee the blue and black.

My brother in law just showed me this before I clicked on this thread. I see black and blue. With a hint of purple in the blue if you want to be specific. He says he sees gold and white. I said he's crazy. The irony of it all is he actually took a color blind test (if that's what it's called) a few hours earlier for a job he's trying to get.

For those who see gold and white, I ask you...

When you look at the white in the dress, look up at the white in your browser. I understand different shades, but is it still white then? Because this is really starting to trip me out. My dad is color blind. He always talked about red and green mixing. Maybe brown on occasion. This is a whole new level of (bleep) your pants. I'm starting to question my own vision.

Have at it.

*edit*
BTW, he aced his color blind test. If that's what you call it.

Seriously or are you just messing with us? It's clearly white and gold to me.

Seriously, I can't even force myself to see the white and gold anymore.

Weirdes thing ever. I saw it as blue and black in the other link. When I first clicked this one, the dress was white and gold, took a second and literally a blink later it was blue and black again.

I'M THO CONFUSED!!

I must have been really disengaged from SM over the past 48 hours b/c it seems like this dress has been breaking things "on the line" for a while now ... damn, everyone's ready to head to Temecula on this one.

Pro-tip: if you have an iPhone, view the pic, reduce the gamma, and apply the "chrome filter." You'll see blue black then if you've been seeing white gold.

All I see is green. Lots of green in the future of the ones that made this dress and made this a thing even.

No, I really see it as blue/black. I have 20/20 vision.

I've read that it depends on the way your retinas are structured or something.


Same. I'm going "Wat?" to the people saying white/gold. It's not because of our retinas, it's because we're BETTER than them, Candy. No other explanation.

This sounds like the color theory lesson from an art class I took a long time ago. The lighting and exposure makes it hard to determine what color it's supposed to be in real life. Take a photo of, say, a blue bucket in a cool- or dimly-lit setting, color pick the bucket in Photoshop or MS Paint, and some or most of the object might be green, brown or gray.

If you color-pick the photo, the dress is "brown" and "pale blue." The rod/cone stuff sounds like nonsense "Facebook science" to me. When your brain processes the information your rods and cones picked up, your experience says that the pale blue and brown could mean a white and gold dress on an overcast day, or blue and black on a bright, sunny day.

When I saw it earlier it was white/tealish and gold, now a few hours later I see blue and black.

What is up with that?

I first saw white and gold, and then when I looked away and came back to the image, it turned blue and black. Weird.

So if you saw this dress in person you'd see the correct color right?

And that provides a simple answer to this puzzle. This dress was worn to a wedding.

Would someone wear *white* to another person's wedding? Of course not.

What I seriously don't get with you freakshows who are seeing a white dress, there's WHITE in the picture right next to the dress. How does that contrast not register in your bug-adled brains?
