The Style Bible is an easy to read style guide for women - by Simon Rademan - available in bookstoresAllow us to do some wardrobe packing for your much needed holiday... and make this one a truly African inspired "scarf" holiday...

Oh yes!  It is that time of year again:  the holiday season… Not for all, but for most of us! 

Because every individual needs to rest sometime and have a vacation, we will make this month’s article short and powerful.  Short, because the tips are few, and simple, and powerful, because you will be able to pack in 2-3 minutes, have lots to wear during your holiday, and have ample space in your suitcase for holiday buys!from

"Gone are the days where you plan days ahead" says Rademan.  "We pack basics and we pack versatile.  This season, all will be travelling light, take little time to pack and rather spend lots and lots of time … just 'holiday-ing'!  I suggest you pack (roll it, rather than folding it) only the following...






  • White T-shirt
  • Black T-shirt, or your favourite colour
  • White button shirt, non-crease
  • Black button shirt, or your favourite colour
  • Denim blue, washed, or black
  • Skirt, or rather not...
  • Swimming costume, if you dare...
  • Casual jacket, that you won't mind losing...
  • Vanity case filled with your personal stuff that you “cannot live without"

Some undergarments, and minor accessories, of course... shoes and specialist wear to go...(this is not my area of expertise)

 And:  2-3 scarves (rather colourful because 'holiday time' is 'celebration time')

Yes, just 2 or three scarves, and here is why: 

Scarf background:


I am proud to say:   "The Scarf" has become a truly African influence on international style and fashion. Hence it is imitated by fashionistas and celebrities alike  …You can drape it, wrap it, knot it, just let it hang, and when you’re done with it, use it to tie all your dirty washing together.  

The scarf has been an integral part of our wardrobes for more than three centuries.  Although evidences place a lang scarfe squarely on the shoulders of the ecclesiastically dress of antiquety, the practice of draping fabric over the head, wrapping it around the neck draping it around the shoulders, or allowing it to just hang from neck to knee, has not been confined to clerical groups alone.  The scarfe has enjoyed broad use whilst transforming itself in the process:  In other words the scarfe has been appropriated by all social classes; it has crossed gender and geographical boundaries, and it has conferred class and celebrity to its wearers.”from “Great Scarf Ideas” by Carol Endler Sterbenz


Scarf uses:


  • You can use it as a Belt
  • You can use it as a Boob-tube
  • You can use it as a Strapless top
  • You can use it as a Skirt
  • You can use it as a Dress (two combined)
  • You can use it as a Bandanna
  • You can use it as a AfricanTurban
  • You can use it as a Neck Scarfe
  • You can use it as a Shoulder drape
  • You can use it as a Kilt
  • You can use it diagonally as a hip “hider” J
  • or diagonally as a hip “enlarger” J
  • You can use it as a Modified Cravat or Tie

And if you need anything else, shop where you are… It is always nice to come home and be proud of your purchases that are “not-from-here”.   … Even if it is just more scarves… J
