Types of traditional Moroccan dresses
Morocco is known for its colorful and intricate designs, which are often reflected in the country’s traditional clothing. Moroccan dresses often feature bold patterns and bright colors, making them the perfect choice for a stand-out outfit.
If you are looking for a Moroccan dress to wear to a party, there are several different types that you can choose from:
The Takchita is a type of Moroccan dress that is usually made from two pieces – a long, loose-fitting shirt and a matching dress. The shirt is often decorated with beautiful and colorful designs, embroidery, and beading, and the dress is usually floor-length.
Takchitas are often worn for Moroccan wedding celebrations. But they can be also worn during special and grand events. The Takshitas worn by brides call for more decoration, jewels, and sequins and they are usually white or cream-colored, but they can also be brightly colored.
The Caftan is another popular type of Moroccan dress. A little bit less showy than the Takchita, Caftans are usually made from a single piece of fabric and are often adorned with intricate designs as well but they also come in minimalist styles as well. Caftans are also long and loose-fitting, making them very comfortable to wear.
The Djellaba is not really considered a party dress in Morocco but more of a traditional, everyday dress. They are similar to the Kaftan design but with a hood attached. Djellabas are made from a heavy fabric like wool for winter and lighter fabrics like cotton or linen for summer.
Like Kaftans and Tekchitas, Djellabas come in all kinds of colors and designs, from the very simple and minimalist to the very ornate and embellished.
Can you wear one of these dresses to a Moroccan party?
Unlike Djellaba, Takchitas, and Caftans are often worn to weddings and other grand occasions. But before you decide which one to wear ask the party’s host what the dress code is because it all depends on the type of party and whether people will come all dressed up or not.
If you want to wear a Moroccan dress to a party (not a wedding) but the invitation doesn’t specify what kind of clothing to wear then go for a more casual look like a minimalist Dejellaba. Just make sure that whatever you were is modest and respects the Moroccan culture.
But as a general rule, Takshitas are usually only worn to weddings, Kaftans are for less grand occasions like Henna parties, baby showers, and eid celebrations. Djellabas on the other hand can be worn to any other type of party or on an everyday basis.
