How to dress like a Rasta Woman: 10 Tips & Guidelines

How to Dress like a Rasta Woman

  1. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #1 – Skirts and dresses as Feminine Clothing : Rasta women dress to embrace their feminine qualities. As Empress being able to carry life is a gift from Jah the creator. Wearing skirts only helps to separate us as divine feminine from our Masculine counter parts. Being a woman is a Joy, Rasta women do not wear pants. We enjoy long skirts to our ankles, they may be tight or loose depending our mood and our duties for that day.
  2. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #2 –Red Yellow and Green Rasta Colors”: Red Yellow and Green are the spiritual colors of Rastafari. We Rastafari wear, “Rasta Colors” in our clothing, In our Jewelry, and Decorate our homes in Rasta Colors too. Rasta colors, mean, love, unity and togetherness. These colors are also found on the Rastafari Lion of Judah Flag. Ttypically Rasta women do not wear pink, however we do if we can match it with a head wrap, for example to give the pink ensemble a “more cultured” appearance. Dressing as a Rasta Woman is all about balance. Don’t forget to check out my “Rastafari Rules for Women” Blog Post
  3.   Dress like a Rasta woman tip #3 –  If Tight… no exposed skin: Some Rasta women wear tight clothing, however there are 2 rules that apply #1: No showing of the skin if the garment is tight. #2: The buttocks and Breast area must be clearly covered, so as not to accentuate or define these areas. Rasta women must not resemble prostitutes, or women of Babylon as we Represent Jah and his holiness at all times.
  4.  Dress like a Rasta woman tip #4 – If exposed Skin… Not Tight: There will be days when we as Rasta women will enjoy a loose off the shoulder blouse, or a nice loose skirt to the knees. We Just keep in mind that we are not trying to attract “sexual attention,” as we are not part of the heathen. Rather Rasta Women dress to demonstrate our divine feminine, in a comfortable manner. On these days, we make sure the garment is loose, so that we appear self respectful, and free-flowing and comfortable in our garments, as opposed to, sensual and seductive in tight, skin revealing garments. You understand. Check out the book life as a Rasta woman to learn more.
  5. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #5 – Make-up to a minimum: Rasta women wear makeup only if and meet rasta black womanwhen they have to. 3 Basic rules: Rule#1: Natural Tones, and colors. Rule#2: No lining of the eyes *SCRIPTURE:When Jezebel, the queen mother, heard that Jehu had come to Jezreel, she painted her eyelids and fixed her hair and sat at a window…”* We Rasta women know eye liner is to attract sexual attention from men, and is a type of make typically used by prostitutes. Just leave your eyes normal. Rule#3: Limit the amount of various makeup products. My personal limit is 3. Foundation, lipstick, Eyebrow pencil. That’s only because Rasta women are not allowed to “pluck” their eyebrows as all hair on the body is considered sacred, in Rastafari.
  6. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #6 – Rasta women Cover her Locks: Rasta women cover the dreadlocks when in Public. We know that our hair represents our faith and is a living sacrifice to Jah. We cover our dreadlocks to respect our faith and ourselves. Rasta Women are aware that in Babylon, sometimes long, loose hanging  hair on a woman attracts the wrong type of attention from men. We wrap our hair so that men and all people who meet and interact with us, see us for who we are as a person, and not our hair style, length, or our hair beauty. Rasta women share our dreadlocks glory, with our Kings, children,  and extended family, not strangers, or people we do not know. Naturally at home we allow our locks to breathe free and hang loose.
  7. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #7 – Rasta women and tights: There will be days when you don’t feel like wearing a skirt. THE MAIN things to consider are, who will I be around today? What activities will I be doing today? Will I be with my Kids? Will there be men around whom I don’t know? Wil I be with My King? When you are with your Rasta King all rules apply, but its ok to wear some tights and a long top. As long as effort is made to cover the life portal, and the back area which tend to be round and enticing to men, then you could rock some tights.
  8.  Dress like a Rasta woman tip #8 – Rasta Women’s and T_shirts: Rasta women can wear t-shirts.
    Buy this Rasta Womans t-shirt

    Rastafari t-shirts are best. THIS INCLUDES red yellow and green and a Symbol of Rastafari such as, a heart, a Lion, A Rasta Flag, A picture of Empress Menen, or King Selassie I. Tight t-shirts with a bra, and long skirt, is cute for casual days.

  9. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #9 – Rasta Woman’s  Clothing is Her Uniform: A Rasta womans clothing is her uniform, just like a Rasta mans outfit is his uniform. I like people to know right away when they look at me that, a) I respect my self, b)I represent a spiritual cause and movement,  c)My clothing is a reflection of my mind and thoughts, d)I am not a part of the heathen or heathen mentality, e) my self-esteem is not dependent on my sensuality, or what others I don’t know think of me. Phew, that is a lot. But, Rasta women take their faith seriously. Whats the point other wise?  Empress Menen is my feminine Divine Mentor. Only her, I try to Mimic, nobody else.
  10. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #10 – No “Babylon” Symbols : No skulls, no upside down cross, no kissing, no polka dots, depictions or symbols on clothing. In Rastafari we believe all energy invites. We do not invite Babylon, death, or, sensuality.

I hope this article was helpful to you as you embark on your new Journey. Please read my books to learn more about Rastafari. You might enjoy, “Life as a Rasta Woman” on amazon.com

Blessed love to all my Empress Sisters. One Love.

How to Increase Self Esteem as Black Human (page 5)

 

 


black jesus3Black Christ

Obtain an image of a “black Christ” and place in a very personal room in your home, such as your bed room or meditation room. Black hue-mans having images of a Christ that does not look like them, only erodes self esteem, and contributes to self hatred. Hang your picture of a Black Christ and see how your life starts to change.

 

Natural black hair

Anybody who wants to follow Rastafari as a way of life, must wear their hair in natural beautiful dreadlocks. Doing this will help to build your self esteem tenfold. I know because I have my hair in locks, and I am more beautiful and free, now then when I was wearing wigs, weaves and extensions. If you are not ready to lock, be sure to embrace your natural coily hair as an afro.

 

Support Black business

Supporting black business is extremely important for Self Esteem and the Rastafari community. This builds black business, and creates self esteem by shopping in a shop that has your image and interest, health in mind. Too many black hue-mans are shopping in stores, that know nothing of our culture, and physical or spiritual needs. Support black business and also black Authors, and as a black hue-man, you may feel more “spiritually attuned.”

 

Positive Black Vocabulary

black coupleIts time we as black hue-mans start to use “positive vocabulary” when making references to our to coily African black hair and black skin complexion.

 

In Reference to our hair we may say…

  • Jah hair
  • Coily hair
  • Royal Crown
  • Wooly Jesus hair

In reference to our beautiful skin tone we may say:

  • High Melanin Complexion
  • Jah skin
  • Honorable Completion
  • Royal Complexion
  • Beautiful African Skin
  • Burnt Brass Color

Using these “terms” will go a long way to creating self love, and inner self esteem as a black hue-man. I was sent here to tell you these things. What you are reading may actually be seen as an entire book on how to have black self esteem.
