There’s no shortage of très chic treasures at these insider-favorite indie boutiques, designer depots, and tucked-away concept stores. Below, eight editor-approved shops that you won’t want to miss. Trust us.
1. TOM GREYHOUND
The roster of brands at this gallery-like space in the Upper Marais reads like a who’s who of fashion’s recent obsessions: Acne, MSGM, and Opening Ceremony. The store also carries newbies like System, Wanda Nylon, and Yune Ho.
19 rue de Saintonge, 331-4461-3659; tomgreyhound.fr
This sweet, wood-accented boutique nestled on a quiet street in the Marais remains our go-to for classic striped shirts from A.P.C., leather booties from Avril Gau, and quirky floral dresses from its own in-house line.
128 rue Vieille du Temple, 331-4461-0014; frenchtrotters.fr
3. MARIE SIXTINE
The newly opened pastel-hued flagship of this six-year-old brand sells pieces like slouchy sweaterdresses, fuzzy boyfriend cardigans, and slinky jumpsuits so pretty, you’ll be forgiven for assuming they’re pricier than they are.
5 rue de Charonne, 331-8573-4238; marie-sixtine.com
4. OH MY CREAM
Owner Juliette Levy stocks only the crème de la crème of hair and skin-care products. That translates to select organic and international items; plus, a team of experts is at the ready to offer treatments and personalized advice.

5. LA TRÉSORERIE
With things like rustic ceramic tableware, Scandinavian-inspired wooden chairs, and engineer-striped French linens, this sprawling emporium has everything you need to decorate your fantasy pied-à-terre.
11 rue du Château d’Eau, 331-4040-2992; latresorerie.fr
If you have just one afternoon to shop, spend it exploring the artfully arranged home goods, accessories, beauty products, books, and clothing at this mecca of cool housed in a former wallpaper factory.
111 blvd. Beaumarchais, 331-4277-0033; merci-merci.com
Locals swear by this unexpectedly cool mega-chain, and thanks to a well-priced assortment of highly giftable toiletries (like Le Petit Marseillais soap) and specialty food items (like Le Saunier de Camargue fleur de sel), so will you.

8. ASTIER DE VILLATTE
It’s easy to lose track of time browsing the delicate ceramics, aromatic candles, and handmade notebooks that line the apothecary-like shelves in this quaint shop.
