The land of sunshine, mythic palaces, carved domes, and cusped arches, Marrakech is the ultimate destination for any lover of architecture, culture, or just plain beautiful places. The jostling city filled with mounds of rich spices, minarets, and hand-tied rugs was an ancient nexus of trade — to this day it's a colorful mix of European, African, and Middle Eastern influence. It's not for the faint of heart, but there's nothing quite like hearing the call to prayer, feeling the intricate arabesque carvings along doorways and passageways in the Medina palaces, or being in the gardens Majorelle, which was the inspiring oasis for Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé. Then there's the distinctly Moroccan tradition of pouring fresh mint tea. Even if you can't take the time off to go, here are some items that riff on all of the city's themes for you to adopt into your wardrobe as the weather warms up — plus this Spotify playlist to help get you into the spirit.
