Morocco can be considered a liberal Muslim country as many Moroccan women do not wear headscarves. However, Morocco is very conservative by the standards you may be accustomed to at home, and you should dress accordingly. As a general guideline, shoulders, cleavage, and knees should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men and women), low-cut tops, and showing midriff is not recommended as it will restrict your entry into buildings of a religious nature as well as family homes, and is considered disrespectful to the local culture. Long, light-colored, lightweight sleeved shirts, trousers and skirts are respectful. Cover your body to keep you cool in the heat and protect you from the harsh sun
