The blue/gold dress debacle of 2015 divided netizens all over the world as to the garment’s true color combination. For many, it was simply black and blue. While for others, it was white and gold. Though it seemed like an uncomplicated problem, this dress sparked a series of debates and led to a number of broken friendships online.
