Black Milk has gained international notoriety due to its amazing collection of designer leggings. Need a pair that looks like gold lamé chaps? You'll loose hours rooting through this Australian company's collection. Last year Milk put out the coolest, nerdiest swimsuits on the globe with the above pictured C-3PO and R2-D2 one-pieces. (If those are the droids you're looking for, you might try Ebay.)
I checked back to see this year's offerings and fell in lust with these: a Tetris screen shot, a NASA photo of a distant galaxy, and that iconic image of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon. (The skeleton bones are pretty fun, too.) The one-piece suit acts as a 360 degree canvas so that each image carries around your back, like a wearable panoramic. The other thing I love about these is that if you threw a ballet skirt over 'em and sprayed a little leave-in conditioner on your mop, you could roll from the pool to another casual function and still look adorable. (The galaxy prints are also available as Lycra minis in the "dresses" link.) Let's take a look, shall we?
