Quick Specific Clothing Question

Hey all,

So i've done some shopping and have bought 2 maxi length skirts, but im in morocco for 6 days and know ill want to also wear jeans some days. I only own skinny jeans (I'm 26, give me a break lol) and was wondering if wearing a tunic top that covers my behind and at least comes down to the thighs would be enough? I know that some local girls wear skinny jeans, but i hear it's often purposely to attract attention, which obviously i dont want. So, will that suffice, or am i looking to buy another pair of looser pants? It just sucks because I know i won't wear another style outside of this trip.

Thanks!

Wear what you are comfortable in is good advice but wear whatever you like is not! There are too many women wearing far too little in Marrakech at the moment. Spare a thought and look at what local women and girls wear before parading round town in micro shorts and boob tubes please.

No-one expects visitors to cover up but a bit of common sense never goes amiss. Arms or legs, cleavage or shoulders, legs or boobs, not everything at the one time!

Coming back to the UK at the end of May, I saw more charcoaled flesh at the airport than you'd expect at a barbeque! It was frankly disgusting, not only because there were acres of it being flaunted all over (oh yes, boobs, man boobs, big wobbly thighs and paunches) but because I don't know how stupid you have to be to not be aware of the dangers of skin cancer.

These burns weren't red, they were like deep polished cherrywood! The only way you could get skin like that would be to burn on the first day and then continue to burn every day following.

Covering up is SENSIBLE because it protects you from the sun. Wearing tight clothing in the heat is only going to lead to chafing and, for ladies, possible problems in the lower regions (you know what I mean). Wearing loose, flowing items encourages airflow around the body and keeps you cool. It also leads to better personal hygiene.

Saying "I saw other people wearing skimpy clothes so anyone can" is not a valid point. My old teacher would say "And if you saw someone jump off Blackpool Tower, would you do it too?"

There really is nothing to get stressed about as long as you dress relatively modestly. This comes up again and again and it is one of my pet hates.
