Is it just me or is a trip to Paris synonymous with shopping? I was so excited to recently take my 15-month-old baby on his first trip to Paris. I was even more excited to buy him lots of adorable Paris baby clothes.
I wrote this post to share where to find the best kids and baby clothing stores in Paris to find adorable and sophisticated French clothing for your little ones.
Paris Baby Clothes
Paris is the undisputed fashion capital of the world and its well-dressed citizens include even the youngest Parisians. Parisian parents like to dress their children like proper little people. In all likelihood, they unknowingly invented the “microfashion trend” (dressing kids up like mini adults). Even kids playing soccer in the park are likely to be wearing a collared dress shirt, cardigan and smart trousers.
If you want to cash in on the microfashion trend for your little one while abroad, check out these stores for the best Paris baby clothes.
Petit Bateau ($)
Petit Bateau is a French institution for children’s clothes. It’s a great store to shop for chic and well-made basics that have a distinct French flair. It’s been a tradition of mine to buy an outfit from Petit Bateau in Paris after finding out the sex of both of my babies.
Petit Bateau’s price point is reasonable (in comparison to other stores) and the quality is top-notch. Petit Bateau carries a newborn, baby, children’s and even adult line. Multiple locations across Paris and online shopping available at petit-bateau.us.
Jacadi Paris ($$)
Jacadi Paris is one of my favourite stores for Paris baby clothes. I just love visiting this store and imaging dressing my son up like a sophisticated little Frenchman. It’s a great place to shop for nicer occasion children’s clothing.
Jacadi Paris carries a baby boy and girl line (0-36 months); a boy and girl children’s line (2-12 years); and a pre-teen girl’s line (10-14 years). It also sells the nicest shoes for kids and babies. Multiple locations across Paris and online shopping available at jacadi.us.
Princesse de Paris ($$$)
If you’re looking for a special occasion or keepsake outfit for your little boy or girl then you must visit Princesse de Paris. Prices are high, but this specialty children’s boutique sells handmade, high-quality clothing in sophisticated prints, like toile (see photo below).
Princesse de Paris carries baby to children’s sizing. They even sell matching doll outfits! This boutique is a must-visit if not only for the window displays. Located at 11 Rue Tronchet in the 8th arrondissement.
