Utilities for applying contrast filters to an element.

Default class reference

contrast-0--tw-contrast: contrast(0);
contrast-50--tw-contrast: contrast(.5);
contrast-75--tw-contrast: contrast(.75);
contrast-100--tw-contrast: contrast(1);
contrast-125--tw-contrast: contrast(1.25);
contrast-150--tw-contrast: contrast(1.5);
contrast-200--tw-contrast: contrast(2);


Use the contrast-{amount?} utilities alongside the filter utility to control an element's contrast.

<div class="filter contrast-125 ...">
  <!-- ... -->


To control an element's contrast at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing contrast utility. For example, use md:contrast-150 to apply the contrast-150 utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="filter contrast-110 md:contrast-150 ...">
  <!-- ... -->

By default, only responsive variants are generated for contrast utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the contrast utilities by modifying the contrast property in the variants section of your tailwind.config.js file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

  // tailwind.config.js
  module.exports = {
    variants: {
      extend: {
        // ...
+       contrast: ['hover', 'focus'],


If you don't plan to use the contrast utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the contrast property to false in the corePlugins section of your config file:

  // tailwind.config.js
  module.exports = {
    corePlugins: {
      // ...
+     contrast: false,
