A Quick and Clean Guide to Our Favorite Moroccan City
What We're Packing
Unsurprisingly, planning for temperature is important! Marrakech averages high 90's during the day and low 60's at night.
That in mind, it's all about lightweight and loose linen for the day, and beautiful wraps (like our suede perforated shawl) for cooler evenings.
It's important to respect the culture, so mixing layers and appropriate lengths is key. Long, flowing dresses and loose-fitting pants are easy to throw on (and move around in).
When we think of Marrakech style, we think...
