Moroccan Street Style

I am sure we all love the luxurious and elegant Moroccan takchita or kaftans. But I tend to find street style a lot more interesting. These photos are all from the streets of Morocco - check out the brightly coloured jellabas, some even worn with niqab. I adore the blue in the bottom picture - brings a little sunshine into the grey English mornings, eh?

Masha2 Allah. What a lovely celebration of color. They are so simple but so strikingly pretty like flowers in spring.

im moroccan just got back from 3 weeks there. the recent fashion for jelabas is using satins instead of cotton and linen. so they are even more glamourous. i wish i took some snaps of them.
i bought a lovely one to wear for eid this year, its like a dress and has two layers in golds and browns. has a hood also.
they do some bright colours. liek bright pinks and greens.
personally they dont suit me i prefer the pastels and earthy colours and traditional moroccan colours.
thanks for the pics.
(sigh) i miss morocco
