Morocco Packing List

An inspirational guide for what to pack for Morocco and outfit ideas for what to wear in Marrakech!




1. Conservative Clothes

Morocco is a conservative country, so you’ll want to pack long sleeved tops and pants. I like maxi dresses to keep cool while still covering up my legs. If the top has spaghetti straps, try layering a white shirt underneath, or a thin knit on top.

My go to for cute, comfortable louse pants and blouses are Anthropologie & Free People. Most of their clothing is made for travel to hot places and easily adjusted with layers, cardigans or cover ups to fit even the most conservative place.

2. Platform Shoes

Marrakech can be quite muddy so leave the flip flops at home. Opt for platform sneakers or platform espadrilles – or at the very least a closed toe shoe! You can wear sandals comfortably inside your riad courtyard or hotel, but I would recommend bringing old shoes or canvas slip ons that you don’t mind getting dirty.




3. Suitcase & Accessories

I recommend bringing a rolling suitcase, just because I find it more comfortable to push luggage rather than carry on my back. I’ve reviewed all my favorite carry on luggage brands in this previous post here and am currently using my Delsey large suitcase.

Packing Cubes | I like to group clothing by color or function and pack each group of items snugly in their own packing cube. These are a lifesaver for keeping your suitcase organized in your hotel room and are my number 1 secret to maximizing space in just a carry on suitcase. I typically reserve one packing cube for all my worn clothes to separate the dirty stuff from my fresh clothes!

Amazon has their own inexpensive 4 piece packing cube set and several travel blogger friends swear by this set from eBags.

Toiletry Bottles | Optional, but I currently like these for shampoo and conditioner. If I know I’m staying in nice hotels, I don’t always bring shampoo but I always want my conditioner. I also pack extra ziplock bags to keep toiletries and wet clothes safely contained.

Sunscreen | Morocco is hot! Bring sunscreen to protect against both UVA and UVB rays. My favorite Biore one is non sticky and glides on smoothly. If you’ve only ever used American sunscreen (like tacky Neutrogena that takes forever to apply and smells) you need to give this a go! The Japanese brands really know their sunscreen!!

Portable Charger | Definitely a must! I currently use an iPhone 6S Plus and this Anker portable charger keeps my phone fully charged at all times. The charger is small and sleek enough to fully charge an iPhone twice. Anker has great customer service – I once bought a product off Amazon that ended up dying and they quickly sent me a replacement free of charge, so I highly recommend them!

Electric Converter | If you are abroad, you’ll need a universal adapter and converter. Also pick up a travel sized power strip so you can charge your laptop, phone and everything in one go.

    Although these outfits are cute, they are not practical for Morocco. The Medinas in Fes, Casablanca, and Marrakech are dirty and crowded. You will need comfortable sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty and can protect your feet from street messes, pollution, and getting stepped on. Also, jeans are best for the same reasons. I love the maxi dresses above and they could work, but I’d be worried about pairing them with practical shoes. The outfits above are great for relaxing poolside at your Riad or a cruise but not for endless walking through crowded median souks! I packed a lot of cute dresses and shoes when I travelled there and I ended up wearing jeans, t-shirts with a blazer, and my converse practically every day. Also have a bag/purse that is crossbody and difficult to steal or for people to reach into. It is a Muslim country so it is also a good idea to be modest, you will get a lot of unwanted attention and the vendors will be very aggressive. It was a trip of a lifetime for sure, just be smart!

      Hi Melissa – Thanks for feedback! The collage is definitely idealistic and a little impractical, it’s my inspirational closet where most of the dresses are way out of my price range. Just something fun I put together! I’ll update it with more practical suggestions soon – thanks for your packing suggestions, that’s helpful :)
