My Books

by Jules Standish

I’ve written three books; How Not to Wear Black, The Essential Guide to Mindful Dressing and A Colourful Dose of Optimism (out 2022).

How not to wear black

is a self-help guide for everyone to find out whether they can wear black without damaging their looks and to discover their true colours.

The book forwards a new approach to looking younger, healthier and happier through colour analysis, achieving powerful results. This is the first self-help book of its kind; looking at the psychology behind why so many women in particular love to wear black.

How Not to Wear Black was published in 2011 and instantly went to Number 2 in the Amazon Health and Beauty section and continues to sell Worldwide. It is a self-help guide for everyone to discover whether they can wear black well, as so many people just love to wear it! If you don’t fit into the only seasonal category that does look truly fabulous in it, my book will show you wonderfully practical and simple ways to continue wearing it well, without damaging your looks, ageing prematurely or feeling drained.

This is the first book of its kind that looks at the psychology, and science of colour analysis to determine whether black suits you or not. You can also discover through my “Personality Questionnaire” what seasonal type will suit you best, with all the colours of each detailed for everyday and work attire, including make-up and accessories too.

The Essential Guide to Mindful Dressing

is my second book on how mindfulness can also sort out your wardrobe for ultimate well-being.

This book reveals the secrets of how colours psychologically can make you radiate with happiness and confidence, and how you can achieve calm in a frantic world. This is full of practical tips and advice to enhance all areas of your life through the colours you chose in your wardrobe.

The Essential Guide to Mindful Dressing is all about the psychology of colour and how to enhance your image. It talks about the amazingly beneficial properties that colours can have to make your wardrobe a happy place. It also looks at each colour closely to help you choose consciously those colours and shades that can support you emotionally for all life situations and events. This is an invaluable go-to guide to creating mindfulness in your wardrobe.

Discover whether Red is your best choice for a job interview, to show you are driven and confident, or maybe Blue is your favourite colour, and you need to know which shade would best project your personality, for any form of good communication.

A Colourful Dose of Optimism

is my new book, with a release date of Spring 2022.

In the current climate of anxiety and uncertainty, why not take control of the things that you can change in a positive way. It’s time to prescribe yourself some red to raise your glass to half full, some pink for positivity, or yellow to put sunshine into a dull day. Maybe choose blue for a calm outlook, along with balancing green to feel more in control. Now you can discover how to harness the power of colour to turn today’s challenges into hopefulness. Invest in yourself whilst enjoying the feel-good factor of having found your own colourful comfort zone for ultimate well-being.
