TOWIE Style: Lauren's Casual Crop

The Kardashians have long been on our Essex girls' lips as the one-stop source for fashion inspiration, but, this season, the mantle has been passed on to younger siblings, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, whose sass and style have got fashionistas in a stir.

Never one to miss a trend, Lauren Pope draws on the model of the minute, and works ‘80s-inspired separates into a 21st century look.

“I went for a high-waisted jean and crop top, inspired by Kendall Jenner.”

Kendall Jenner took the fashion world by storm when she broke away from reality TV, and onto the catwalk in 2014. Fresh-faced, and fierce, this social media celeb inspired Chloe Lewis post-Dubai, and it looks as though our Pops has followed suit.

“I like crops and high-waisted bottoms, as it shows just the right amount of flesh.”

High-waisted denim was the staple for ‘80s fashion, and has seen a re-emergence that looks like it’s set to stay. Designed to cinch the waist, and elongate the leg, this deceptively flattering style works well with a cropped, or fitted top, and is ideal for flashing your midriff in the most tasteful way.

“I then threw over a loose-fitting trench coat to make it more casual.”

The iconic trench coat is something every woman needs in their wardrobe, and spring is the perfect time to let this style essential shine. Having gone through an evolution through the decades, this season, soft fits, and casual silhouettes make for effortless dressing.

Are two TOWIE couples set to reunite?

Meanwhile, Lauren isn't impressed with a certain someone and Georgia makes an apology. Get all the Twitter beefs and goss...

Let's be honest, we all think Jake's a bit mad (we're still not over him lying about kissing Popey), but if he wasn't mad would he have provided one the stand out moments from series 14? He jumped into freezing cold sea in nothing but tight-whities! We're not sure if the gesture proved his love for Chloe L, but it did prove he had shrivelled man parts...

It seems Chloe L was impressed (and, to be fair, so were we - THAT BOD), so are they back on? ...

The rest of the TOWIE lot seemed to be more concerned with Jake getting a taxi from Essex to Bridgend (which, we've calculated, would have cost him £320)...

Essex meets Wales!

Sun, sex and surfing: a perfect holiday! Except, it’s Wales, so pretty much only the last part is true. However, the getaway gave Jake the perfect opportunity to gatecrash and profess his love to Chloe L. He doesn’t half love a grand gesture, that fella…
