Even if you've never had the opportunity to explore France in person, you've likely heard the phrase "French girl style" at one point or another. The City of Lights is full of women who have mastered the effortless, head-to-toe polished personal look. And now that the shows have officially begun, Paris Fashion Week's Spring/Summer 2021 street style is out in full force, offering plenty of inspiration.

Following in the decisions of New York, London, and Milan this season, Paris is also opting for a blend of physical and digital shows. Day one brought the pared-down list of attendees out for shows such as Dior, Coperni, and Koché. And though the week kicked off on a rainy note, show-goers still put their best feet forward and arrived to Dior in the brand's logo-embroidered jackets and sparkly hair clips. For Coperni, founders Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant attracted an ultra-stylish crowd to its presentation, where the label's sculptural bags were the accessory du jour.

The rest of the week has a packed schedule of shows including notable brands like Lanvin, Dries Van Noten, Balmain, Givenchy, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton. Meaning, the street style is only going to get better as the days go by. Below, Darrel Hunter took to the streets of Paris to snap street style images for TZR. The shows go on until Tuesday, Oct. 6, so keep coming back every day for additional photos.
