To craft rugged luxury itineraries for open minded explorers seeking faraway and bespoke experiences
I absolutely adored the time I spent in Morocco. I also loved the challenge of figuring out what to wear in Morocco as a woman! Morocco is a beautiful country with a wide-ranging landscape and vibrant and bustling cities. The coast is full of quaint fishing towns and some of the world’s most unique surf spots, while inland buzzes with bustling souks crowding the winding Medina streets. Looking past the snake charmers, wonderful rugs, stray cats and Arabic design found everywhere, await welcoming hosts and beautiful people. The culture was extremely inviting, and the whole experience felt like a dream. But you’re probably wondering something. What is a westerner to wear in a country as unique as this? Here is your guide on what to wear in Morocco as a female traveler.
I have been to Morocco twice now and loved both times! On the first trip, we spent three weeks backpacking around the country. I didn’t enjoy Marrakech the first go around. However, when I visited with a group of 15 people in January of 2020 for a friend’s birthday, I had an absolutely FABULOUS time in Marrakech.
Morocco is hot in the summer like blisteringly so. In the winter it can get cool in the evenings, but most days you will find the weather in the 70s. Layers will be your best friend no matter what! Here are the basic tips of how to pack for a trip to Morocco.
Morocco’s population is predominantly Muslim. When visiting, please respect the Muslim culture and dress accordingly. This doesn’t mean you have to go full send and wear hijab, but you should dress more moderately than you are used to in most western countries. Shoulders and knees should be covered, and since it is a desert, you are going to want clothing to be loose and flowing. Below are some of my favorite styles from my first trip to Morocco.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, but Birdies are legitimately the ULTIMATE travel shoe. Seriously, seven laters of comfort with memory foam don’t even BEGIN to explain how much I love these shoes. Invest in a pair of Birdies and your feet will be thanking you in Morocco. Their sandals are literally so cute and the perfect Morocco shoe and their slides will go with anything!
You can never go wrong with a good pair of Birkenstocks – they are the ultimate shoe for traipsing around the souks of Morocco. They mold to your feet and are always comfortable!
So now you may be wondering, what to wear in Morocco at your riad? You are going to want a bathing suit to match the culture and the vibe of this complex and diverse country. Two of my favorite places to buy swimwear affordably online are CupShe and LuLus. However, my all-time favorite bikini brand will always be Whiskini Bikinis.
