On Thursday, a user going by the name of Swiked posted a photo of a striped dress to Tumblr, which was then picked up by BuzzFeed. “Guys please help me — is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the f*ck out.”


The Tumblr post that started it all off

Within hours of it being posted it went viral with hundreds of thousands of people debating what color it actually was. Some people claim the stripes are blue and black, while others can only see gold and white.

So what is the actual color then?

Well according to science there is no right answer with regards to the photo of the dress – we’re all individually wired to see different colors due to their varying wavelengths.

And the final piece of evidence comes from the dressmakers themselves Roman Originals they stated earlier in a tweet “We can confirm TheDress is blue and black! We should know!”.

Well what more evidence do you need than that!
