Among the unmissable cities of Morocco, Marrakech is considered one of the most beautiful luxury destinations worldwide.
Here is our complete guide to women's outfit for Marrakech with some matchings and inspirational style tips to get a perfect holiday look!
Above all, some globetrotter tips:
when it comes to what to pack for a journey, it's always good to dress in layers and to pack go-to items
(like a light raincoat) to be ready to overcome some possible difficulties.
Moreover, in the magical red city, the temperature range among night and day is very high, so you will need warm pieces,
above all if you have booked a tour in the Merzouga desert.
Comfy and practical items to face long hours of travel and a night in a tent under the African starry sky.
PS: Don't forget sneakers!
Here are some golden rules to know if you are a tourist in Marrakech:
remember to be respectful with the culture of the place and to avoid alluring clothes,
above all during the period of Ramadan.
Elegance and bon ton are essential everywhere: it's really important to know how to dress well, how to match colours and how to enhance your body shape.
Camouflage pieces and accessories are forbidden.
Marrakech is an open-minded city, welcoming and tolerant, but it would be better to avoid wearing pieces of clothing that could draw the attention of wrong people.
Bring with you a practical mini or belt bag and hold it tight
to go in the heart of the city, the Medina, to visit the very lively suqs.
Here are our fashion tips about the outfits to pack!
