There was a time when Lauren (when played by Jacqueline Jossa) lived in tartan shirts and slogan tees. Here is a round-up of the most popular tops we found and ID’d from when SoapStyle began, up until the character’s farewell in February 2018.
The Embroidered Flower Blouse
First worn as part of Lauren’s smart new interview outfit back in October 2016, this blouse was later seen on screen again throughout the Christmas Day episode then again in 2017.
This lightweight top featured a sheer embroidered sweetheart insert panel at the front, finished with a button-back high neck collar. It’s such a timeless look and we were not surprised when it sold out very quickly from New Look after we featured it!
Missed it? There may be a second chance to
A Smart White Pocket Blouse
Lauren returned to the ‘Square in August 2017 after spending some much-needed R&R time at her Mum Tanya’s place… and she wore a new top!
Lots of people expressed interest in this smart blouse with pocket flap detail. We originally found it available
The Workdrobe Pink Ruffle Bow Blouse
Lauren first wore this new outfit for her interview at Posh Josh’s place of work. The blouse went on to form a key part of the character’s office wardrobe until July 2017.
The match we found for her pink lace ruffle top with bow neck quickly sold out at ASOS.
A Casual Black & White Tie Dye Top
This top was one of our favourites from her latest wardrobe. It vaguely reminds us of the print Carla would often wear in Coronation Street.
Featuring a striking tie dye design on a semi-sheer knit material, our match above was available
The Black & White Spray Paint Shirt Dress
First worn when Lauren celebrated some good news after finding out that she had got an internship “at that fancy Design agency”, this outfit was seen on screen again during July 2017.
Featuring a striking stencil spray design, this 80s-inspired shirt dress was available
That Grey Saint Louis T-Shirt
We think you may be surprised about where this is from… Topman! Not the first time that Lauren was seen wearing a Topman tee. This one is an oldie, with Lauren having first worn this back in 2011 and often under her
We first featured it in 2013 and were very surprised to see Lauren wearing this again in 2016 and 2017. It’s a nice little touch, now that her son is called Louie!
Want to see Lauren wearing this t-shirt in 2011? Here’s a YouTube clip.
A Navy Tiger T-Shirt
Lauren wore a new t-shirt whilst flat-hunting for a home with baby Louie and Steven. Made from a jersey material and with a scoop neckline, this was stocked at ASOS and sold out shortly after we featured it.
The Stud Checked Tartan Shirt
Remember this shirt? It was definitely an old favourite for Lauren and one of our first ever fashion finds. It originally came from New Look in two colour variations; this one and another with green thread.
Unfortunately this shirt is long out of stock, but there may be a second chance to
A Grey Check T-Shirt
Tartan/check prints were Lauren’s go-to for quite some time. This ‘Washed Check Tee’ was from Topshop. Lauren’s top looks slightly blue in our image above, but it was definitely a grey colour.
The Pretty Heart Print Shirt
This lovely red / burgundy heart pattern shirt from New Look was only ever worn a handful of times, which was a bit of a shame.
Love it? We have previously found this shirt listed
A Red Tartan Shirt / Blouse
Lauren wore this back in early December 2013, but it was already an old wardrobe item by then. We remember seeing it on screen around the time of Christmas 2012.
Made from a sheer material and featuring a collar chain (a big trend from mid-2012 onwards), it was originally from River Island.
The Chicago 10 Baseball Tee
A similar style to her very popular American Football look ‘Paris New York Milan’ slogan tee (see below), this t-shirt was from New Look and quickly sold out after we featured it.
A Red & White 17 Boston Sports Top
So many people were interested in this over on our
The Black LOVE Slogan T-Shirt
We had lots of requests for Lauren’s LOVE t-shirt when it was first seen on screen in August 2013. It required quite a bit of detective work, but we were able to track it down at Forever 21.
A ‘Paris New York Milan’ T-Shirt
During a heart-to-heart with Max, Lauren wore this bold white and black sports tee from Miss Selfridge with a ‘Paris New York Milan’ slogan and black stripes on the sleeves.
This tee quickly sold out online after we featured it and went on to become a bit of a favourite wardrobe item for the character, appearing in several episodes.
The Cute Green Bird T-Shirt
Who knew a bit of dusty tinsel and a few mangled baubles could a glittering wedding venue make? Lauren managed to transform the R&R in a few hasty hours before Sharon’s nuptials back in 2013.
Just before the main event, Lauren wore a bright green tee with a very cute bird motif. Lauren wore this fan favourite from River Island many times between 2013 and 2015.
A Retro-Tastic Black & White ‘PRW Records’ Top
Remember when Lauren used to wear really trendy t-shirts? This retro 1988 inspired tee with Bruit Noir slogan was by Topman. Yep, this was another cheeky men’s tee in Lauren’s wardrobe.
An American Football T-Shirt
Worn when Lauren couldn’t keep herself away from Jake and Sadie, our match for this retro American Football t-shirt was by
The Navy & White Stripe Top
Lauren looked lovely in this navy and white stripe top from Topshop in 2012. Featuring preppy suedette elbow patch detail, this was a Breton top with a twist!
A Skull T-Shirt
We found a similar match for Lauren’s white t-shirt with studded skull motif from MANGO, but it may have only been seen on screen once!
The Blue & White Ombre Animal Print Top
This loose-fit swing style vest with ombre animal print was from Topshop and worn a few times before we featured it in 2013.
A Green Burn-Out Vest Top
Lauren’s sheer green vest top with an Aztec pattern burn-out detail was originally £7.99 from H&M. This was styled layered over a darker vest.
A Blue & Black Mesh Crop Top
Part of Lauren’s R&R outfit worn under
A Black & White Aztec Crop Top
Lauren was loving the monochrome Aztec prints back in 2014! During her show-down with Nancy Carter, Lauren wore the above crop top from New Look.
The Classic Stripe Sleeveless Shirt
Most fans would have seen this publicity picture of Jacqueline Jossa as Lauren back in 2013 wearing a sleeveless ‘Grandad collar’ top. This maroon (or ‘oxblood’) stripe top was from Topshop way back in 2012.
A Black & White Stripe Top
Bit of a historic wardrobe piece this one. Lauren was first seen in her stripe top way back in 2010, during that Christmas. You know, the big Max & Stacey reveal Christmas. So it goes to show that some of the older clothes got a bit of a dusting off every now and again. If you want to see it in action, check out the Max and Lauren Red Button special on this YouTube vid.
We are pretty sure this top originally came from New Look, as they did a nice line in Breton stripe tops around that time. Lauren later repeated the look with a newer version in 2017 & 2018.
