Over the past few months, we've amassed quite the collection of slip dresses. The style has made a serious comeback since its heyday in the late '90s: It's been celeb-vetted and achieved sell-out status this season. So, it's time to think up some new ways to style the piece — or, rather, revisit some tried-but-true tactics for donning the wispy, strappy silhouette.

The trick is simple, nostalgic, and can be easily recreated with items already in our closets: layering the lingerie-inspired garment over a T-shirt. Over the past few weeks, it's been spotted on three members of the Kardashian-Jenner family tree (Kim, Kendall, and Kylie) — could this be the springtime equivalent of "lampshading?" We're all for this no-fuss trick. Check out three celeb takes on the move, ahead.

The Kardashian take on a high-low airport look: When you want to be comfortable for your flight, but know you'll be greeted by photographers upon departure and arrival, wear your zip-up Adidas activewear under a silky, slitted maxi with heeled sandals. It may not be our go-to travel ensemble, but it's certainly one way to re-wear an evening gown...

Two Jenner-vetted trends become one. Kendall Jenner dresses down her luxe, creamy layers — an Are You Am I slip dress and August Getty duster coat — with a T-shirt. Given the short hemline, her thigh-high Balmain boots give the sort of lampshading look we've seen on Jenner and her sisters before.
