So, you’ve booked that dream holiday to Morocco and can already feel the warmth of the sun as you imagine lazily lying by the pool; wandering the markets of Marrakesh and sampling the sumptuous local cuisine. However, when it comes to packing that oversized suitcase, you’ve purchased especially for the trip, panic sets in! What is the dress code in Morocco?
Look no further! In this guide, we will inform you of precisely how to dress as a female tourist in Morocco, going over what clothing you will need for the trip of a lifetime!
Modesty is Key
As a woman in a Muslim country, it is customary to respect local dress codes and traditions. Therefore, as a rule, thighs, shoulders and midriffs should be covered. In Moroccan culture, these body parts are considered as private and should only be seen by husbands.
Furthermore, ensure you pack long skirts and loose cotton trousers amongst your luggage, as well as tops that are long enough to cover your midriff area. Don’t panic! You don’t need to buy a whole new wardrobe just yet. We recommend that you take a few pashminas that can easily be worn over strappy dresses or tops to cover the shoulders. However, one thing you might want to invest in is a long, flowing, cool kaftan which is perfect to wear in the Moroccan heat.
