@function contrast-color($color, $dark: $contrasted-dark-default, $light: $contrasted-light-default, $threshold: $contrasted-lightness-threshold)
  @return if(lightness($color) 
@function contrast-color($color, $dark: $contrasted-dark-default, $light: $contrasted-light-default, $threshold: $contrasted-lightness-threshold) {
  @return if(lightness($color) 

Returns the $light color when the $color is dark and the $dark color when the $color is light. The $threshold is a percent between 0% and 100% and it determines when the lightness of $color changes from "dark" to "light".
