Recreating Christian Dior’s School Uniform Look on a Budget


Recreating Christian Dior’s School Uniform Look on a Budget

Back in December 2021, Maria Grazia Chiuri released Christian Dior’s new pre-fall collection, a collection of layered in punkish tartans, biker shorts, jackets, and ties, and a rebellious take on school uniforms. 

Nowadays, preppy fashion isn’t exclusive anymore.

I realized that I could somehow recreate this look within a small budget. 

So, I headed to the Spotlight store in Traralgon to source for a fabric that is close enough to the original Christian Dior’s tartan print fabric.

The store doesn’t have the tartan fabric that I like, but I found a fleece fabric in yellow tartan print, which I reckon would be a nice material to make a jumper for this coming cooler months. 

One meter of textile is enough for my size to create a good jumper. It is soft and fluffy, feels like a cloud that can warm your heart. 

Together with other pieces of clothing already in my closet, I managed to recreate the look without spending my credit card, including my husband’s.

Here is the rundown of my budget look!

Yellow fleece tartan print jumper that I made (fabric from Spotlight - $7 per meter, on special)
White oversized men’s shirt that I got from the op-shopping gig, $4
Black bikers short from Kmart, $12
Black leather handbag that I also got from my favorite local op-shop Vinnies, $10
And my black Doc Martens that my husband gifted me.

I’m happy to report that I succeeded in my goal! 

Even managed to film content for my Tiktok!

    1. I like yellow, coz instantly brightens my day. But I won't splurge on brand new luxury items. I would be so lucky if I found one from the charity shops.

  17. I love your take on this Dior outfit. I guess it must be the hit of the fashion week as it's also Heart E's most popular look to date. I'm just not sure I can handle fleece in Manila. Perhaps if I go to a colder place in the PH, it would suit better.

    1. Fleece gives cozy and warm, and definitely not a good fabric when you are in tropical area.
