Nau Clothing Holiday Pop-Up Grand Opening in NYC

Is it too early to think about the holiday gifting season? We don’t think so, especially when the items we’re highlighting today are essential to the cold temperatures and wet weather we’ve been experiencing this fall. We had the pleasure of being introduced to the refined Fall/Winter collection from Portland-based apparel brand, Nau Clothing (pronounced now). The event was to celebrate the return of Nau Clothing to the East Coast and the opening of their New York pop-up shop.

We love the design aesthetic and silhouettes from Nau Clothing because of its versatility, its classic looks, and its ease of travel anywhere pieces. Pieces from the Nau Clothing collection will last you multiple seasons for many years without losing its innate style. It’s no surprise to know these pieces will seamlessly take you from season to season, year to year. Many items will easily become favorites you’ll be pulling out of your closet to wear time after time.

Fall/Winter Essentials: Sculptz Tights, Sheers, and Leggings

It’s getting colder out there ladies and while we say goodbye to the fabulous warm weather, it doesn’t mean we say goodbye to fabulous style. As we transition to Fall (though the weather we’ve been having can’t seem to make up its mind), we need essential everyday legwear to highlight and complete our look. That’s where Sculptz Tights (shown below photo one), Sheers (photo two) and Leggings come in.

The Sculptz Tights not only comes in 40 denier opaque knit and rich colors, they feature an ultimate shaping panty that comfortably smoothes bulges and eliminates visible panty lines. The Sculptz shaping control panels will flatten your tummy, lift your rear and slim your hips and thighs. Plus these tights offer light massaging leg support. Can I have in every color please?

Sculptz Legwear comes in a variety of patterns and colors, you may have seen sheer tights on the runway last Spring and you will continue to see this look grace the fashionable streets this season. Sculptz Sheers are an everyday essential in a 15 denier knit. Colors compliment your skin tones. These sheers feature an ultimate shaping panty that comfortably smoothes bulges and eliminates visible panty lines. The Sculptz shaping control panels will flatten your tummy, lift your rear and slim your hips and thighs.

Leggings, which have replaced pants and skirts in many looks have become and continue to be a wardrobe staple. The Opaque Leggings have a 70 denier fabric that is opaque enough that these can be worn on their own with a fabulous dress, skirt, tunic, tee and more. The control top panty gently slims your tummy and smoothes your hips while eliminating visible panty lines. Plus the smooth, stay-in-place leg band won’t pinch.

So you see ladies, adding Sculptz Legwear is a must for your wardrobe this season.
