Meet The Refined Team

Theresa Jean
Founder & Lead Stylist

Theresa Personal Stylist

Theresa’s interest in fashion started at a young age and has shaped her career. Spending years studying designers, fashion history, pattern making, trend forecasting, and international style, Theresa’s background transcends the full spectrum of the fashion industry.

Working with men and women from all over the world (on five continents) has provided Theresa a unique perspective that she brings to each new client. Her natural eye for shapes, colors, and designs, combined with her extensive experience and education, give Theresa a distinct approach to styling.

Theresa has written for fashion bloggers, designers, and style websites. She has also styled ad campaigns for national brands, corporate events, website images, and video commercials. Experienced in providing one-on-one wardrobe styling and personal shopping services, Theresa founded Refined with the hope of educating others on the art of discovering and developing their own personal sense of style.

Lauren has had a love of fashion that dates back to childhood, even receiving a middle-school superlative for “best dressed.” She spent her college years working in retail, where she loved visual merchandising. Countless hours were spent picking the most visually appealing outfits for mannequins in order to inspire customers. Lauren also loved working one-on-one with clients, showing them how transformative clothing can be.

Lauren’s education is in business and marketing. While she originally joined Refined to improve the overall customer experience, she naturally fell into the role as full time stylist.

With her creative eye for outfit composition and proportions, coupled with her love for helping others feel like the best version of themselves, a career as a Personal Stylist is a natural fit. Lauren loves teaching clients about layering, mixing patterns/colors, and the vital role of accessories. “With all of the outside societal pressures that exist today, helping people feel confident in their bodies is arguably the most rewarding aspect of this job.”

“Fashion is more than just the clothes on our backs, it’s the way we present ourselves to the world. Getting dressed each day is an opportunity to completely reinvent yourself. Your style can impact your confidence, and thereby have a major influence on your success. My goal as a stylist to help everyone look and feel their very best, so they can achieve the ultimate version of themselves.”
