If there’s one thing that makes the internet go bananas, it’s optical illusions. (After all, the dress will go down in online history as one of the most baffling — and infuriating — visual puzzles of all time.) So when Twitter user @milanoysl posted a mirror selfie of her outfit, social media pretty much lost it trying to figure out if the photo showed one leg or two.
Let’s break this down. In the picture, @milanoysl can be seen sporting black track pants and a cozy sweatshirt. “Yea I just combined vertical and horizontal stripes,” the caption read. But it wasn’t the outfit itself that caught people’s eyes; at first glance, the white stripe on the side of her pants makes it look like one of her legs was split into two. Not gonna lie, I did a double take myself.
“Is it just me or did anyone else think that was both of her legs at first?” one person asked in response. Another person agreed, adding that they “ALMOST LOST IT.” And if you’re not yet convinced that this optical illusion had people totally freaking out, take this comment as hard evidence: “This is more confusing than the white and gold/black and blue dress that went viral in 2015.” High praise for sure.
The reason for the confusion is pretty clear; the stripe on her pants is basically the same shade as her bathroom floor, making for a really perplexing photo. As for @milanoysl herself, she reacted by commenting: “Sis I’m a meme.” Indeed she is!
