Have a look at 7 such short lehenga designs that are vibrant, chic, and fuss-free!
Handpainted abstract lehenga
An easy-breezy outfit that is also dressy is every bride’s dream, isn’t it? Get yourself a multi-coloured lehenga skirt with abstract designs like this one from the label Papa Don’t Preach. Perfect for the modern-day fashionista bride, the quirky bralette top and lehenga skirt monotone duo is an instant trendsetter! As much as nude ankle strap heels will match you up just right, don’t shy away from picking out a pair of gold heels.
Go mustard from head-to-toe
We are still crushing over fashion blogger Masoom Minawala’s asymmetric skirt that she chose for her Holi-themed cocktail party. Modern silhouettes like these will make you look elegant and up-to-date with the new fashion look books! We love the asymmetric skirt and the wrap tie sleeveless blouse that makes for a fuss-free ensemble for a mehndi or Haldi! Tie up heels like Masoom’s will bring your outfit together.
Pocket full of sunshine for your destination wedding
This look from designer Anita Dongre’s daughter-in-law’s wedding still gets our hearts racing. Right from its relaxed silhouette, the floral motifs and the lapel collar top, what’s not to like? The lehenga skirt has pockets too. Wait, what? You can pick a style similar to this to compliment your wedding aesthetic. Destination weddings make for a stunning backdrop when it comes to fresh Summery colours like these.
Vivid green printed lehenga
Love them cold-shoulder outfits? Include a cold-shoulder blouse with a mehndi green short lehenga skirt for your mehndi ceremony. We love the playful vibe of this lehenga paired with gold jhumkas and applique mirror work on the hemline. This would look great if you add floral jewellery to go with your day-time function and the overall vibe of your wedding decor.
Short lehenga with a jacket
A deep blue colour lehenga will make for a great offbeat pick for your mehndi day! As much as a monotone short lehenga does the trick, a jacket in the same print will take your outfit up a notch. We absolutely loved this design from Papa Don’t Preach, with beautiful gold accents, a strappy top and a gorgeous flare. We loved the look, don’t you?
Floral print crop lehenga
If the greens and blues are not your colours, go for a beige lehenga with traditional multi-hued designs all over. This bride chose a boat-neck blouse with dangling earrings and a bunch of Kadas to compliment her look. We love how the look is so simple yet stunning! The hemline has gold-toned beads all over, which doesn’t let the print get monotonous. Did this Inspire you to pick out an understated beige lehenga for your pre-wedding ceremonies?

Pastel outfits make for a great addition to any bride’s wedding trousseau, especially with the Indian summers. A short lehenga outfit in pastel pink will make for a perfect mehndi day outfit. Did you notice how dreamy the bride looks in the outfit? We love the lilac floral jewellery and her romantic hairstyle with soft curls and braids. The peter pan collar is a great element of surprise adding to this pretty pink lehenga.
As much as floor-length lehengas make you look like a dreamy princess, short lehengas are the new fad. Go for a hands-free look for your mehndi/Haldi ceremony and stun your guests with your fashion-forward style. We absolutely love these trending lehengas that are not only easy to style but also look gorgeous. While we understand this might not be a comfortable length for some brides who are tall and swear by their floor-length lehenga skirts, we assure you a great pair of footwear and your mehndi-clad feet will make you look put together.
