Middle parts were all the rage at New York Fashion Week during the Fall/Winter 2013 shows, but let's back up a minute - spring is right around the corner, and that's where our fashion focus is headed right now.

Before you reach for the comb, take a look at the spring runways for this upcoming season's hair inspiration, and consider the side part. We loved the slicked-over 'dos at Lacoste, as well as the pulled-back buns at Altuzarra. A side part, worn up or down, is the perfect way to give a spring look - amidst floral prints and neon hues - a much-needed boost of sophistication.
