4 Chic Vacay Mode: 2021 Summer Outfit ideas

Summer 2021 is here with a promise to be better than ever! I mean, we’re going to be vacced (vaccinated) & waxed so what’s gonna stop us from embracing that #VacayMode (praying in a corner)! Like I’ve been doing every year, I’m back with my top picks for the season. I curated the #VacayMode 2021 Summer Outfit ideas list in collaboration with SHEIN who BTW are hosting their big summer sale at the moment with unbelievable discounts. They have added PREMIUM & CONSCIOUS lines to their collections with impressive size inclusivity, so if you’re not only shopping there, this is your moment.

Before going into the outfits, let’s talk about 2021 summer trends for a moment. This year is all about having a celebratory season when all of us will finally be able to go out and show off our best selves. However, you don’t have to go through a major ‘makeover’ for that. The celebration is of the fact that all of us survived this huge undertaking of a pandemic and are hopeful for the future. It’s also a moment to celebrate the missed milestones & remember those who were lost on the way. So, I’m not so much about trends this year as I’m about the ‘classics’, ‘feel-good’, & ‘celebratory’.

My 2021 Summer outfit ideas are all about loving myself and wearing what I feel my best self in, even better if it’s trendy but not only.

So to say, the big summer 2021 trend is embracing the ‘you’ you discovered in the last (almost) 2 years and be unapologetically them! So, the ‘vacay mode’ can be somewhere you go or even bring to the streets of your own city.

With that let’s get into today’s outfit listicle that I personally had a lot of fun creating. I have shared the outfit details below each with direct links to buy them for easy access.

1. Summer Florals

Any summer vacation I take is absolutely incomplete without some florals. Basically, when I think of #VacayMode, I instantly imagine beautiful pastel florals in my clothing. When I laid my eyes on this wrap-around maxi dress, it was the epitome of the perfect summer outfit for me.


  1. Floral-Print Belted Dress
  2. PREMIUM Summer Bag with lining
  3. PREMIUM Stainless steel layered chain

2. Big sleeves, Wrap-around straps & Tweed

Tie-around blouses are the rage this season. So, I just HAD to get my hands on this premium quality blouse to get by this summer. It’s so light, trendy, & beautiful that it’ll definitely become my go-to piece this season. When it came to styling it, I decided to pair it with classic mom jeans & a light tweed jacket. Tweeds will absolutely never go out of style for any season whatsoever so, this outfit just screamed semi-formal chic to me.


  1. Lantern Sleeve Crisscross Tie-Top
  2. Tweed Raw Trimmed Double Breasted Blazer
  3. PREMIUM Stainless steel layered chain

3. Cut-out waist & Duochrome layering

One can absolutely never go wrong with a cute black and white combo. Elevate it further with a trendy tie-around blouse under a cut-out waist dress-jumpsuit hybrid for the ultimate chic look. With the right material, you can always layer on to make your outfit outstanding. This particular style works on the street or inside a workplace with a blazer on!

  2. Crisscross Back Cutout Waist Romper
  3. PREMIUM Stainless steel layered chain

4. Bodycon style with Ruches

Another hype style of the summer is a bodycon dress. While I was most reluctant to get on board with this one, I was pleasantly surprised by how flattering and cute it was. I credit the ruches for it but either way, I loved it. I styled it with a tie-around top with more dramatic sleeves and a corset belt for that synched waist look.
