If you've been online or anywhere near your phone in the past few hours, it's likely that you've been vexed by #TheDress debate. While much of the country was sleeping, a photo of a lace and satin dress uploaded by a Tumblr user has divided the Internet, and the InStyle office, into two camps #blueandblack and #whiteandgold (and then there's the confused folks who are flitting between the both).

It all started when Tumblr user Swiked uploaded the photo writing: "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— out." And in doing so she caused the whole Internet to freak out too.
