Well it seems we have our first clothing related optical illusion Internet sensation of 2017, thanks to Twitter user Sugar. 

The Californian posted a picture of herself taking a selfie in a bathroom wearing a black and white striped crop top.

But Twitter users soon began to question if she had deployed some kind of online trickery as her top seemed to light up when clicked upon. 

With some even wondering if her top was ‘the devil’.

The crop top from Forever 21 appears to be dark grey on first appearance, but several people have found that the white stripes become more pronounced after you click into the image, as if lit up.

But Twitter user Colton Morano explained: ‘For anyone wondering it’s called aliasing, the image is reconstructed with sharp pixels affecting how your eyes perceive images.’
