What Colors Are This Dress? Blue And Black Or White And Gold?!

by Giovanna Boldrini
Giovanna was born in Rome, Italy and currently resides in South Salem, New York. In her free time, she likes to cook with her children and grandchildren.

It all started with a simple question on social media platform, Tumblr. User Swiked uploaded a photo with a plea to her followers:

“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 out!”

Believe it or not, that one little question sparked a viral debate on Twitter and later Buzzfeed that’s been taking the internet by storm. Millions of people cannot agree on the color. Some argue that the photo is overexposed, others are just questioning the sanity of people who see different colors.

What colors do you see when you look at this dress?

I personally see white and gold. I find it hard to imagine that ANYONE thinks this dress is blue and black. However, a few of my coworkers in the office this morning maintain that it is most definitely blue and black, and that I’m completely color blind.
