We describe the Lipschitz geometry of complex curves. To a large part this is well known material, but we give a stronger version even of known results. In particular, we give a quick proof, without any analytic restrictions, that the outer Lipschitz geometry of a germ of a complex plane curve determines and is determined by its embedded topology. This was first proved by Pham and Teissier, but in an analytic category. We also show the embedded topology of a plane curve determines its ambient Lipschitz geometry.
