Havaianas thongs the new #TheDress | What colour do you see?

It's happening again. The debate of a common clothing item is up for debate on social media. 

At first it was ‘The Dress’ which had people arguing about whether it was white and gold, or blue and black. Others see a happy medium of blue and brown/beige.

This time, a photo from a Brazilian Twitter user is asking what colour the Havaianas thongs are. 

While some Twitter users are adamant they’re seeing a pair of blue and black thongs, others are certain they are white and gold.

So which is the right one?

Well, a quick search on Havaianas’ Brazilian site prove they could only be one thing.

(Drum roll please).

They’re black and blue – at least the pair in the store were, with the footwear label only selling that colour combination. 

However, they do sell a black/grey combination and a copper/black combination as well.

But in a world of photoshop and filters, who knows what colour is depicted in the Twitter image.
