My name is Karina, and I am an award winning senior Colour Analyst, Image Consultant and Personal Stylist for Kirklees, Penistone, North Sheffield and Wakefield.


My name is Karina, and I am an award winning senior Colour Analyst, Image Consultant and Personal Stylist for Kirklees, Penistone, North Sheffield and Wakefield. My purpose is to empower and inspire people to be the best version of their physical and authentic self. I enable clients to make better choices, look more attractive, feel more confident and save time and money. Your image tells a story; let me help you ensure the outside is in sync with the qualities you have inside.

My franchise was established in 2008, and I am now one of the leading UK based consultants, supporting clients locally, nationally and internationally.

Have you ever thought:

  • What colours suit me?
  • What colour makeup should I wear?
  • What should I wear with what?
  • How do I accessorise?
  • What styles suit my body shape?
  • How do I project a strong professional image?

Have you ever felt:

  • Invisible, drab, frumpy?
  • Overwhelmed by shopping?
  • In need of a boast?
  • Curious about colour and style?
  • Style-less
  • Uncomfortable in the clothes you have bought and/or frustrated by the unworn clothes in your wardrobe?

Knowing what works and what doesn't is enormously empowering and saves so much time and money by not making all those impulsive (or sometimes well thought through) mistakes. When your clothing really fits, there is a visual integration between your clothes and you. Your clothes look like they belong, which is the difference between looking average and looking great.

So a little about me; I've lived in Yorkshire for 19 years; it's home now, but I have lived all over including a period overseas. I'm married to Paul, have two gorgeous children age 14 and 15 and a furbaby called Candy. I'm not some mythical figure who is 5ft 11 and weighs 8 stone and floats around behind the scenes at London Fashion Week. I'm a busy working mum, juggling a business and the demands of a family. In my spare time I love power walking, going to the gym, cinema and catching up with friends. My passions in life have always been fashion, music, metaphysics and cream teas! I view style as art, a never ending evolving medium which tells a story.

The details:

Your visual style is the sum of 3 parts:

  • Architectural shape and proportions - this is the technical side to the clothing industry.
  • Style personality - this is your most authentic visual self.
  • Colouring - this is the glue that holds it all together and influences your hair, makeup and clothing colour choices.

Core offerings for both men and women:

Colour consultation:

I will demonstrate how you too can look your best in colours which suit your natural skin colouring. Understanding what colours suit you is the underlying secret to getting your makeup and clothing right. Colours that draw out the right contrasts in your eye colour, your hair colour, your skin tone and much more. Take away your leather wallet containing the swatches of all your colours, plus a booklet with personalised notes on how to start building your wardrobe.

Personal Style:

A Personal Style Consultation can be delivered in person at my studio or in the comfort of your own home via a zoom call. We look at your architecture and how to dress to accentuate our strengths and create those optical illusions around the bits you are not so keen on. Understand your proportions, how to accessorise and the best shapes of clothing to suit your frame. Bring your look up to date with details on latest trends. Understand your personality and how to express this through your clothes and accessories, so that your look is authentic and polished.

  • Know what to re-purpose
  • Know what to discard
  • Create more outfits from what you currently own
  • Identify gaps

Ongoing support:

Your body and style has a unique signature - a collection of elements that are exclusive to you.

I view each and everyone of you as a work of art, mixing colour, textures, shapes, scale and proportions to create a signature look. Just like an artist though, he/she doesn't become a master overnight; it's a journey. I will assist you on your long and rewarding process of discovery.

I stay with you as long as you need me. I offer:

  • Style inspiration boards.
  • Online and in person personal shopping
  • Online shopping £50 p/h, in person shopping/styling £200 for 3hrs (am/pm)
  • Online and physical wardrobe edits

​£200 for 3hrs, £50 p/h thereafter. Plus travel.

​Online and in personal style top ups

​Eyewear

60% of adults over 40 wear glasses, this rises to 90% of over 50's. I have shopped with clients for eyewear for years, but frustrated that we couldn't consistently source the right style of frame + colour, I decided to train as an Eye Wear Stylist in 2020.

Choosing frames has never been so easy or reassuring. I work with VIP Eyewear as my Optical Dispensary, and style using the Italian IGreen solution, which is fully bespoke and customisable.

We select the frame, choose the colour and then choose the sides. All frames are made to order in Italy. I work with a large choice of frames and a wide choice of colour.

So not only do I ensure the right clothes go in your wardrobe, I ensure the most flattering eyewear sits on your face.

Consultations are available during the week and every other Saturday. My studio is based in Oxspring, which is outside Penistone. Consultations are relaxed, fun and informative. Once you've been you will wonder why you didn't come years ago.

If you'd like any more information, please phone or email me. Scheduled consultations are listed, but if these aren't suitable, then please suggest an alternative date.

I very much look forward to meeting you.

#Align with style.

Best wishes

Karina

So, how could colour change your life? Well it has amazingly changed mine, since my colour analysis by Karina Leacock back in January 2015 I've had the confidence to change the colours in my wardrobe and makeup bag getting rid of all those clothes and makeup that never really suited me. Shopping is a real pleasure now something I really hated before and I'm getting a buzz from all the colour combinations I am able to achieve. I know sticking to my colour palate really works and I can spot the colours that best suit me easily, I know they will all work together thus saving me money in the long run. I feel so much more confident, I've joined a college course sorted out a long running family issue and flown to the USA on my own, I truly believe I have achieved this because of the colour changes I have made and the input Karina gave me in how to use them as I feel so much more confident as a person wearing them, it may seem small changing your colour palate but it has made a huge impact on my life and my husband is singing the praises of it too. This was the best investment I have ever made for me.Thank you

I was bought a Men's colour and style day as a present. I have to admit that I really did not think that this would be for me, but I went for my day with an open mind. To the surprise of my friends and family (and myself !) I found the day both enjoyable and enlightening, gaining a real insight and understanding into the impact of colour and style, in terms of the colours and shapes best suited to my own tones and personality. Having now refreshed my wardrobe based on the learning from the day, I feel confident, smart and stylish in all that I wear, with this reflected back through positive feedback from others. This has certainly made a difference for me, and I have been genuinely surprised and delighted how the learning from one day has had and continues to have such an impact. Thank you Karina.

My daughter persuaded my husband to buy me this as a Christmas gift. It was indeed `timely’. I’d entered the phase of `late middle age’ and to be blunt, I’d lost my sartorial compass. I was never what one could call a clothes horse but I’d begun to feel invisible. What did my image say about me? Did I even have an image? Having watched several episodes of What Not to Wear, I was treading a middle ground between boring and tragic. Oh, how I envied those defiant rule breakers who just didn’t care.

Karina was brilliant in that she inspired us all to make the most of our physical attributes and to identify clear steps forward. Style is not to be confused with fashion; style is your personal statement, your signature. Fashion changes but personal style reflects the inner `you’, whatever one’s age. Karina’s objective was to set us on the path to developing a practical & easy set of guidelines. By knowing what to look for when selecting clothing, anyone can feel good about their appearance, thus releasing time and energy to devote to weightier matters.

I just wanted to tell you how amazing the impact has been for me.  I have had so many compliments from people about how good I look, even from people who don't know I've had my colours done! My husband has got really into it and took me shopping and bought me lots of clothes in my colours.  My confidence has had a real boast, so thanks so much.

Colour, Style and a Personal Shopping Trip!

After attending Karina’s personal style day, I was instantly clear which clothing shapes not to wear but felt I did not have the confidence to go out and buy what I ought to be wearing in order to look great.  My main aim was to buy some key workwear items.

I asked Karina to accompany me on a personal shopping trip.  I was a little anxious that she may suggest items that I would not feel comfortable wearing.  However, she has the skills and experience to spot items immediately in terms of the right colour and style and she selected many many items that I should try.  Everything looked great and I could see instantly what Karina could see.  I bought lots of items and came away absolutely delighted with the capsule wardrobe that Karina had created for me.  I now feel smart and modern and am constantly receiving compliments about how smart I look.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Karina’s services.

I have had successful shopping trips since my day with Karina, as I can now see for myself what she taught me on the day.

Colour, Style and a Personal Shopping Trip!

My colour analysis session with Karina helped me to rebuild my confidence after the breakdown of a relationship.  The impact was immediate and I was shocked by how many compliments I received.  After attending the style day I was clear about what shapes and styles I should be wearing but still not entirely confident about what to buy.  I asked Karina to accompany me on a shopping trip.  She was able to immediately spot items I would not have had the confidence to try before.  We had a really fun day and I was thrilled with my new colourful capsule wardrobe Karina created for me.

I now have much more confidence in my purchases and am now much more willing to try new styles.  Whatever your age and style, I can recommend Karina.  I believe the colour analysis is the best investment I have made and friends have commented how much more confident and happy I am.

Thank you Karina!
