Dress code in Morocco
Morocco is deemed an open and liberal country. There are no strict rules with dressing. However, women have to respect the general clothing norms, which is covering the knees and breast and avoiding tight or transparent outfits. During winter, we highly recommend you to wear layers of clothes to keep yourselves warm all the time. The average daily temperature is about 12 °C.
Air can be dry all year round, moisturiser and lip balm are the must. Maybe some face mask to relax your skin at night. To protect your skin, sunscreen, umbrella and hat is important all year round. Good walking and stable footwear are a must as most of the time visiting requires walking in cobblestone, narrow and steep alley way, uneven pathway/tar road, soft and sandy sand dunes.
