From bright colours to bold stripes, autumn has a lot of seriously cool swimwear options out there…

The weather may have dipped, but that’s no excuse not to try your hand at wild swimming this autumn.

From Frensham Great Pond and the River Ouse in Barcombe Mills to the River Chelmer in Ulting and Hoemill Bridge, going wild swimming has never been easier – or more fun.

And while you’re off scouting for the perfect spot to take a dip, it’s only right that you splash out on a new swimsuit for the occasion, too.

While there are plenty bold, bright and beautiful options to shop, there are a few that have peaked our interest (and Gemma Cairney’s) due to their different designs.
