Lauren Branning’s Dresses


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 from here.

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 from here.

A Practical Grey Stripe Pinafore Dress

Grey stripe pinafore style dress as seen on Lauren in EastEnders

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 from ASOS.

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 from ASOS for the occasion, featuring a mixed stripe design and zip fastening at the back. This quickly sold out after we first featured it.

A Very Popular Embroidered Dress - EastEnders - Lauren's Dress for Roxy & Alfie's Wedding - Where From

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 from Miss Selfridge before the episode aired! It was a bit of a shame that we only got to see this popular dress on screen once.

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.

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 blush pink biker jacket, this was actually the one and only time she wore this outfit! The dress sold out very soon after we ID’d it.
