Things That Look Dirty, But Aren’t (30 Crappy Designs)

I’ve never followed any fads when it comes to fashion and design but why would anyone be into things that look dirty? I have a problem with this for a couple of reasons.

First, how would you know when or if something is actually clean? I’d be scrubbing most of these crappy designs for hours before remembering it’s supposed to look dirty.

Second, it just doesn’t look cool. A big thing for my generation was buying jeans that were already ripped. People buy them brand new with holes in them when they could just go to a thrift store.

Maybe it really is a good idea because it hides dirt. If you never want to clean your sink again, just tell people it’s designed to look dirty.
