Aptly named Mieux, a name that translates to “better” in english. The clothing sold here is full of vibrant colors, playful modern patterns, and a summer esthetic. Those who are shopping for a playful french style look no further. Marketed towards men and women in their 20s and 30s. You can check out their key pieces on their instagram page boutiquemieux.
Best Accessories: Do You Speak Francais?

This boutique is a bit of a trip, about 20 min bus ride outside downtown Bordeaux. However, the train fare is worth the trip. The height of a authentic french style, the boutique only sells clothing and accessories made in France. It’s inventory includes shoes, fine jewelry, perfume, soy candles, and art prints showing off Bordeaux’s beautiful landscapes. The one downside is if you came to the boutique looking for a beret, you would leave disappointed.
