Of all the quintessential clothing items loved by the French, I think the foulard tops the list. The French have the best scarf options for year-round wear. A multitude of textures, textiles, patterns, and prints are available for purchase in countless stores around France. In Paris, here’s where I recommend you look for a special scarf.
Museum shops (e.g., at the Louvre or Centre Pompidou) are great places to purchase a scarf because the scarves here are unique, artsy, and interesting. En plus, it’s unlikely that you can get the same scarf anywhere else.
You might know the French brand Longchamp because of its gorgeous purses and luggage, but its scarves deserve attention, too. Many designs include an equestrian theme, but in the current collection, there are a few French designs that are sure to remind you of your Parisian vacation.
If you’re looking for a scarf that won’t put a dent in your budget, you might want to step into Monoprix to see what it has to offer. Monoprix is part-grocery store, part-home store, and part-clothing store. You can get a ton of shopping done at affordable prices here.
