Where to Shop for Scarves in Paris

Aside from the Eiffel Tower and croissants, nothing is more Parisian than a beautifully draped scarf. It is a staple in the attire of Parisian women young and old. But where do French woman buy their scarves? In this post, I’ll share my secrets on the best places to shop for scarves in Paris.

When shopping for a scarf in Paris, ask for a foulard. Many Canadians (myself included) often mistakenly ask for une écharpe, which is akin to a warm wooly scarf—a habit most likely formed from enduring years of tundra-like winters.

A stylish scarf is the perfect accessory to add to any maternity outfit. Looking for ideas on where to shop for maternity clothing in Paris? Check out my post on Where to Shop for Maternity Clothes in Paris.

My favourite places in Paris seem to be the ones I discovered by accident, and Diwali Paris is no exception. I stumbled across this charming scarf shop during my honeymoon in Paris and made sure to return during my babymoon.

It sells hundreds of scarves in every colour, pattern, and luxurious fabric imaginable. In addition to carrying its own brand, Diwali Paris sources exotic silk, wool, and cashmere scarves from all over the world made using traditional, artisanal techniques.

When my female friends and family ask me to pick up something special for them in Paris, this is where I go. Diwali Paris also sells fabulous costume jewelry and fashion accessories.

For those unfamiliar with Monoprix, its a medium-end department store, much like Zellers (Does Zellers still exist?). Although most truly fashion-saavy Parisian women wouldn’t be caught dead shopping at such a generic retailer, don’t write it off. I once found a gorgeous, made-in-France, silk scarf in Monoprix for €10. Ever since that momentous discovery, I make a point of checking back every time I’m in Paris.

Location: several locations across Paris, including 76 Rue Lecourbe, 15th district
