    Let's see, if this picture was accurate to the dress's real appearance, it would simply look vibrant blue and black, but the image looks really faded and darkened with light in the background, so the dress's color looks questionable to me. Black however seems out of the question. I've never light so bright that it makes black look gold or brown, I find this too odd. I have seen a shadow make white look darker and bluer many times, so this dress just looks like it could be white and gold in the shadows, and since the irl dress is not, this is just a terrible photo!

    every time i've looked at this image, it appeared black and blue.

    i can see how someone would perceive the illusion of blue and gold because the light reflecting off the black has a yellowish hue.

    however, i don't as easily see how the blue could be perceived as white because the light's reflection gives the blue the least amount of contrast.



    wooo... spooky dress. lol.

    not really. just a good demonstration of how much predisposition plays a role in how someone interprets facts.
    In challenge lies opportunity.

    It changes color as I look at it mostly gold and blue, but the clod darkens to black and the blue lightens to a cream color, then back. It's hypnotic really...

    I've seen this pic dozens of times at this point. I've only ever seen the true blue and black --just faded.

    I don't get it. That picture is very obviously white and gold.

    When I first saw this pic, I saw it as white and gold, but now I always see it as black and blue.

    They explain it in this article:

    Color of the blue and black dress science - Business Insider

    There's not much color context in the photo itself because it's so zoomed in. So what color you see depends on individual perception and the environment in which you're looking at the photo.

    People who see white and gold may be looking at the dress in a blue-lit room or near a window with a blue sky. It also depends on our own individual sensitivity to the bluish tinting in the photo. The brains of people who see white and gold are interpreting the photo as more shadowy. The brain compensates for the darker blue tinting and interprets the blue part as white and the black part as gold.

    People who see the correct black and blue might be looking at the dress somewhere with artificial, yellow-lit lights. Or their brain is interpreting the photo as more illuminated and therefore it doesn't need to compensate for the shadows.
