Marrakech - what to wear?

DH and I are planning a break in Marrakech in autumn.

Perhaps I’m overthinking what to wear...maxi dresses with a scarf around my chest and shoulders. Calf length dresses, am I right in thinking that bare legs are a no no and are leggings okay?

I don’t have any trousers. I live in dresses!

Just be modest - certainly cover shoulders, cleavage & knees.
I wore cropped trousers & t-shirts a lot of the time without being stared at.

Obviously in your hotel you can wear whatever you want but outside as PP has said, just be modest. You don’t want to bake either. I just wore a mixture of thin loose trousers, cami tops and maxi dresses all with very very thin cardi’s to cover my chest and arms. Just don’t have a lot of flesh on show, nobody wants to be stared at for all the wrong reasons! There were Western women walking around in Marrakech who’d obviously not given it a second thought and they did stand out!

Hazmat suit, face mask and goggles.

Being serious, I would not be planning any breaks anywhere atm. Even if it’s a twinkle in your eye (I have to book my leave a year in advance and have a week off at the end of August, so I know it’s tempting to dream,) I would not be buying anything. The world is currently a different place.

@backinthebox I agree, I actually thought this was a joke/sarcastic thread.

I have a cool "modest" outfit to wear in such places.
Loose, full length linen trousers. and a t shirt with half sleeves.
Good for exploring, no need to consider dress length, keep a light scarf in your bag in case the sight of a womans head is offensive.

You are being very optimistic in thinking this will be over by then,sorry.

There's nothing wrong with planning a trip, we need to stay optimistic.

Outside the hotel, I wore a 3/4 length skirt and a sleeveless top. I bought a thin shawl out there from one of the street sellers.

Inside the hotel, I just wore normal resort clothes.
