Lauren Branning’s outerwear collection (when played by Jacqueline Jossa) has been one of the most popular in all the Soaps we cover! Who could forget her tartan coat and coveted biker jacket?
We have compiled a round-up of the coats and jackets we ID’d from when SoapStyle began — up until we waved goodbye to the character in February 2018.
The Original Tartan Coat
This was one of our first ever fashion finds here on SoapStyle. Lauren practically lived in her tartan coat between its introduction in November 2012 and ‘retirement’ in 2015. It was originally priced £75 from ASOS and sold out after we first featured it.
She returned to this look with yet another tartan coat between 2017-2018.
That Biker Jacket
Lauren was first seen in this ZARA jacket well before SoapStyle even began! It became one of her most worn wardrobe items and -funnily enough- our most requested find.
Many viewers still have a soft spot for this whole look and you can check if any pre-loved ones are available
Another Biker Jacket (with Added Tartan)
Lauren briefly reverted back to her older style (pre pinafore dresses) in 2014. As she watched the Max / Kirsty drama unfold outside the Vic, Lauren wore a red tartan / check biker style jacket with black faux leather sleeves.
Our match from Primark’s AW13 range was very popular amongst Lauren’s fans. Love the look? Check for any on sale
A Pretty Blush Pink Biker Jacket
Lauren wore this lovely blush pink biker jacket for her date with Peter Beale, before they later became ‘official’.
The lovely rose gold effect fastenings especially caught our eye, adding a unique touch that makes this jacket seem more expensive than it actually was. At £34.99

The Old Faithful Utility Shirt Jacket (Shacket)
We remember Lauren regularly wearing a khaki utility jacket waaay back in late 2012 / early 2013 and it popped-up again along with some other older wardrobe pieces in 2014. This was an oldie from River Island.
A Khaki Green Military Coat
We searched high and low for this coat and unfortunately couldn’t get an ID confirmed. Lauren wore a lot of River Island and Miss Selfridge in 2013, so we suspected it from either one of those stores.
The Khaki Green Bomber Jacket
Bomber jackets were a popular wardrobe item in EastEnders back in 2016; even Pam Coker got in on the action with a pretty floral one!
Viewers first saw Lauren wear the above jacket shortly after Lauren’s return from New Zealand, when she seemed to be reaching a new stage in her life (and wardrobe). It was seen on screen again in July 2017.
Featuring diamond quilted fabric with zip sleeve detail, our match was
A Leather Look Baseball Bomber Jacket
First worn when Lauren attended her first group counselling session and met Jake Stone (Jamie Lomas), this leather-look varsity jacket featuring contrast black and white trim with popper buttons was

The ‘LB Lettings’ Grey Suit
Whilst it was a little odd that Lucy decided to ‘style’ Lauren in exactly the same clothes for LB Lettings, we absolutely loved their suits back in 2014! Both the suit jacket and trousers were
This outfit later became quite iconic due to Lucy wearing it for one of her final photographs. Look carefully at the photos in the background at the Beales’ household and you might just spot it.
A Chic Grey & Black Tweed Coat
Lauren’s grey speckled coat from Primark featured an on-trend biker style collar with quilted faux leather trim. It was a shame we didn’t get to see it more often! There might be a second chance to get one
The Denim & Black Lace Jacket
Lauren has managed to find a bit of dosh to go on a shopping spree and add this jacket to her wardrobe. Featuring grey jersey sleeves and black lace detailing to the pockets, it was originally from River Island.

A Green Aztec Sleeve Jacket
Whilst browsing the market stalls on an impromptu shopping trip with Emma Summerhayes, Lauren wore the above utility-style jacket with multicolour knit sleeves.
This was from Primark in late 2013 and was only worn on screen once before the character set off for New Zealand.
The Going Out Black Leather Gilet Waistcoat
Lauren was dressed up for a night out at the R&R with Whitney and Lucy back in 2013. She wore a rock-chick faux leather gilet from New Look teamed with a
