Shopping for clothing in Paris isn't what it used to be. Once lined almost exclusively with French and some European designers, the capital's well-worn boulevards have been usurped by internationally accessible fashion stalwarts and mid-market chains. But there are no bounds to the troves of unique finds in the city. "Qui ne tente rien n'aura rien" is the prevailing thought — you won't strike gold unless you dig a little. Les Voltigeuses, a tiny, multi-brand boutique in the ever-evolving 10th arrondissement is one smart place to start your search. Geared toward a slightly more refined trendsetter (think: more muted/pastel color palettes), you’ll find a gorgeous range of clothing and accessories like scarves, bags and headbands (arranged by color) from Des Petits Hauts, Marie & Sixtine, Leon & Harper, American Vintage, Karl Marc John and Beck Sönder Gaard among many others. It’s the quintessential Parisian fashion shop everyone wished they had in their neighborhood.—Lindsey Tramuta
