Now that spring has officially sprung, it's time to reassess your steez. Out with the bulk, in with the cool, refined and always essential bomber jacket.

You cannot overestimate how versatile a good bomber is. And while we're not expecting you to go for a satin number like Ryan Gosling in Drive (below), if you choose wisely, one of these bad boys will be your best friend in the months to come.

Stick with neutral tones - blacks, greys and navy - to maximize your new jacket's versatility. Then go for a white or grey T-Shirt for a casual look, or smarten up with a slim-fit cotton Oxford shirt

Add some dark, skinny fit denim, a killer pair of trainers or brogues, and you're ready for almost anything a spring bank holiday can throw at you.
