Lauren Branning’s clothes (the Jacqueline Jossa era) were some of the first fashion finds ever to appear on SoapStyle, so she will always have a special place here. We have compiled a round-up of the most popular dresses we found and ID’d from when SoapStyle began — up until the character’s farewell in February 2018.
Previously famed for her student-tomboy look, Lauren began wearing more dresses from around late 2013. This was quite a style shift away from her checked shirts, skinny jeans and iconic biker jacket!
The Bold Stripe Wrap-Over Dress
This was one of Lauren’s favourite dresses after her return from New Zealand with Steven. Featuring bold stripes and a d-ring detail at the belt, it was originally
The Pretty Black Floral Embroidered Dress

A Black Mesh Skater Dress
Lauren, Whitney and Abi were all glammed-up for their big night out in Shoreditch during the Good Friday episode and Lauren bought a new dress for the occasion. Let’s be honest: This was probably to impress Posh Josh, rather than Steven!
Her black fit and flare dress with lace panel and keyhole button neck was available earlier the same year
A Practical Grey Stripe Pinafore Dress
Lauren first wore this grey vertical stripe pinafore dress whilst trying to persuade her Dad, Max, to support her application for a job at his place of work. There was no stopping Lauren once she’d put her mind to something! Fast forward to August 2017 and Lauren had already attempted to hand in her notice to Posh Josh. Oh dear.
Featuring silver-coloured fastenings and two large pockets at the sides, Lauren often styled this with a black top underneath. Our match above was exclusively
The ‘Going Out’ Orange Striped Dress
To celebrate her new web design contract, Lauren & Co. put their glad rags on ready to hit The Albert for mocktails and drinks.
Lauren chose the above 2-in-1 dress
A Very Popular Embroidered Dress
Jacqueline Jossa as Lauren wore a lovely blue embroidered dress with a delicate tulle skirt for Roxy and Alfie’s ill-fated wedding back in November 2013. We were able to exclusively reveal that it was
The Black & White Paisley Dress
The above teaser photo of Jacqueline Jossa (as Lauren) and Jamie Lomas (as Jake) was released back in 2013, when we saw some of her more grungy outfits replaced with fit’n’flare skater dresses.

A Chic White / Grey Dress
When returning from some much-needed R&R in the summer of 2013, Lauren got herself a job at the ‘Branning Bros.’ car lot and looked stunning in this textured cut-out back dress from the Vila fashion label.
The Pretty In Blush Pink Lace Dress
Lauren’s delicate blush pink lace dress from Lipsy was seen in the 21st and 24th June episodes, when she went on a ‘first date’ with Peter Beale. Paired with a
A Grey Poppy Print Zip Front Dress

A Black, White & Denim Dress
This 2-in-1 dress with a rolled sleeve denim top and black / white skirt was originally from River Island in early 2013.
A 2-in-1 Chambray Dress with Red Skirt
Lauren first wore this River Island denim top dress with red floral skirt and tie waist back in 2013.
A Teal Skater Dress
The Brannings were each in their smart togs for Max’s court appearance in November 2013. We think Lauren’s dress was originally from Topshop, but you can still steal her style on a purse-friendly budget with the similar dress we found below, priced from £6.
New Year’s Beaded Shoulder Party Dress
Lauren wore a lovely black dress with beaded shoulders during the New Year’s Eve party at the Queen Vic. The closest match we found at the time was from AX Paris.
A Burgundy Tribal Print Skater Dress
It may have only appeared on screen once or twice, but this printed dress was very popular. We found a match from Topshop that had already sold out by the time the episode aired.
