Forget all the dress codes you know. Now is the era of high-lowcore

The sky blue raglan sweatshirt she wore with a pastel pink bib shorts at the Chelsea Harbor Club in 1997! The black and yellow jumpsuit she paired with a club collar shirt and tie in Berlin in 1985! The Northwestern preppy purple sweatshirt she wore with a Gucci Bamboo bag at the gym in 1996!

As Diana demonstrated so well at the time, the key to getting a good high-low score is to be daring, yes, but also to have a keen awareness of what works in tandem at all times. A full black tie outfit with all the trimmings won’t gel particularly well with a pair of Yeezys and a Von Dutch cap, as a rule, but if the elements of said look are to be intertwined with consideration and a sense of retro contrast – the same dinner suit worn with a Supreme T-shirt and white Reebok Classics, for example, or a classic Burberry Kensington trench coat with a heather gray Adidas tracksuit – then the whole high-low vibe can combine very well.

If you still need a little high-lowcore inspiration this summer, look no further than The Roots frontman Questlove, who performed at the 93rd Academy Awards last month wearing a Spacious but chi-chi (so far Oscars) wraparound black tuxedo has teamed up with a pair of gold Crocs. Yeah, gold-plated chef de partie’s shoes, totally plastic. And if it’s not a high-low core, I don’t know what it is.
