[BM] GrimithX BMASTModerator[EXACTA]  there was an update on this it was Photoshop trickery its actually a blue and black dress.. theo wins

Crocketeer   The color can literally be either, which is why people can see both.

I worked a bit in theater tech and I could explain the conflict, and what the dress actually is (Besides other explanations).
So typically white light is a mix of gold-amber colors to blue colors (They are complements in the light color spectrum). Materials reflect certain amounts of these colors and the final color depends both on the incoming light and the coloring of the material itself.

Because they are complements, golden materials typically reflect very little blue light and blue materials reflect very little gold light (If you have a light filtered to be almost all blue, gold colors show up black, its kinda cool). Black and white reflect them roughly evenly, but in varying amounts.

So what this means... the color you see can depend on background lighting. If the background light was gold tinted, a strong blue would still show up blue (though dampened), while black would shine slightly gold. If it was blue tinted, the white would be colored blue while the gold would be darkened as there isn't as much gold light to reflect. If background lighting matched the dominant color (blue or gold), it would show up incredibly strong and there would be no contest.

So we go to looking at the background lighting. It is predominantly gold/yellow, which makes the dress blue/black. If the background lighting was blue, it would be a gold/yellow dress if it appeared the same way.

Optics is a strange subject.
