Labels We Love: Nux
At last Spring is almost here! Springtime = new fitness goals. If you’re like the rest of us, you’ve probably resolved this year to get active, get outdoors more or at least manage to feel the burn after walking up those flights of stairs…that count as a workout, right? Whether you’re finding your zen in Downward Dog, taking a walk in the park or hitting the gym, a little style in your workout gear can go a long way. The ultra-comfy, chic line Nux brings us a minimalistic ultra-comfy line of workout basics in non basic styles and flattering fits and cool colorways. Nux has become the ultimate inspiration, proving you can still look stylish while getting fit.
Chic to be Unique
In 2008 Nux’s founder saw a gap in fashionable ready to wear but not activewear. He wanted to bridge that gap. We produce some of our pieces using seamless machines. We have the capabilities to create items that are body engineered, with different compression levels as well as jacquards, mesh & piping all of this while still being 100% US Made.

How NUX is filling the gap in women’s activewear
We created pieces that are simple yet fashionable.
Why is it important need to reach women and provide workout gear that is both fashionable and functional?
Women today are busier than ever. They work, are the cornerstone to their families and still make it to brunch with the girls. It is very important for a woman like this to be able to have an “easy” outfit while still looking fashion forward.
The elements to combine athletic wear and style
We use prints, meshes, jacquards, color (lots of color). We also spend a lot of time looking at trends, not just in activewear but on the runway.
The NUX girl
She sits in front of the spin class, not afraid to be different but most of all she’s smart. She cares about the world she lives and takes pride in making sound decisions.
A Passion for fitness
In short living an active healthy lifestyle just makes everything else sweet! It’s empowering to take control of your body, and we love empowerment and helping empowering.
How to stay motivated to workout
Your mind and soul is so much more happier when it’s healthy if that doesn’t work there is always Bikini Season
Favorite pieces in the line
Our V Pant is what anyone new to NUX should try, they seem like a basic legging but they are so much more. We have a yarn called Aquarius® added to the construction that aids in sweat wicking. Because it is part of the DNA and not an additive in a wash it gets better and more active as the garment is washed and worn. Next best is the Paloma bra or its sister the Skinny Bra. It’s ridiculously soft microfiber Nylon yarns and a perfect cut to be worn under activewear or day to day under a tee. The last item would be our London Legging- this bottom shows the true capabilities we have in our body engineering. Elegant piping and heather makes this pant a show stopper.
Tips to looking chic while wearing workout clothes outside of the gym
Pair any legging with boots and a cute leather jacket and you good to go anywhere.
