5 Ways to Wear Short Kurtis this Monsoon

We all know the monsoon season can be an absolute nightmare when it comes to getting dressed. One minute you're enjoying the first drops of cool rain after months of sweltering heat, the next you're dealing with frizzy hair, sticky situations, and a whole new set of wardrobe woes. But fear not! Your trusty lucknowi short kurta are here to save you from misery this monsoon.

These cute and casual numbers have all the problem-solving power to keep you feeling breezy, comfortable, and most importantly, dry when dressing for the rains. But of course, your stylish selves won't settle for just throwing on any old lucknowi chikankari kurta-and-chudidar combo.

We've got style to serve, even when the weather is being totally uncooperative! So here are 5 fresh, trailblazing ways to rock your lucknowi short kurti with pride all monsoon long.

1) The Palazzo Party

Let's start with our personal favorite summer-to-monsoon transition look: the short kurta x palazzo pant combo! These lightweight, free-flowing combos are quite literally a breath of fresh air on those humidity days. The loose silhouette allows for bonus air ventilation down below while the kurta keeps you covered up top.


Look for palazzo pants in natural, light-as-a-feather fabrics like cottons, linens or rayons that won't suffocate your skin. Pair them with a short kurti and you've got a cool, comfy yet polished look that can take you from brunch to boutique runs with ease.

2) Culottes = Life

Another bottom option that'll keep you from getting hot and bothered this monsoon? Culottes! These calf-grazing, wide-leg crops were basically made for dealing with Korea-level mugginess. Their swingy silhouette creates a subtle breeze around your stems as you walk, instantly cooling you down.

Plus that cropped length keeps you from dragging fabric through puddles and mud when the rains get heavy. Go for breezy cotton, linen or chambray culottes and pair them with a sleeveless or cap-sleeve kurti on top. Add some basic slides or flip-flops and you've got an unstoppable errand-running uniform!

3) Kurta + Shorts = New Favourite

You rebel fashionistas looking for a more cutting-edge monsoon move? Try treating your shorter kurtis as relaxed tops! Heard of the kurta-and-shorts combo? It's the kind of cool-girl look that'll have you rethinking those basic kurta-and-legging sets for good. Just pair a knee-length cotton kurta with some casual shorts, from mom shorts to drawstring numbers. Leave the kurti untucked for major laidback vibes or tuck the front for a more polished feel. Add some comfy sneakers or slides and you've got a dry yet darling look for weekends and casual hangs. Bonus points for layering with an overshirt or jean jacket in case the rains get wild!

4) Skirt Game Strong

For a more feminine warm-weather look, wear your flowy short kurti with a lightweight skirt, be it a crisp cotton mini or midi. You'll stay cool and dry with proper airflow while still looking elegant and pulled-together. Just tuck that kurti in to show off your waistline or leave it untucked for a more relaxed, effortless silhouette. Add some pretty slides or lace-up sandals, maybe some bangles or a neck-piece. Don't forget a statement umbrella to keep that look fresh should a downpour strike!

5) Kurta Dress Code 

But really, why overcomplicate things when you can just let your trusty short lucknow chikankari kurta be the entire look? Look for kurtis that hit right around mid-thigh or a couple inches above the knee for ideal coverage and breeziness. If you need a little extra security, just throw on some cute biker shorts or a slip underneath.

Then simply throw on some basic sandals or slides and you've got a comfy, effortless yet presentable look on-lock. Throw a lightweight jacket or shawl over your shoulders. 

Add to your cart these hard to miss lucknowi chikan short kurtis. 

So there you have it- 5 smashing ways to keep your cool, stay dry, and still slay all day in short kurtis this monsoon! Don't let some rain ruin your vibes! Just incorporate a few of these looks into your dressing rotation to survive the rains in total comfort and dryness.
