Apart from spring's contrasting megatrends of military-inspired fashion and softly draped nude-colored clothes, cowboy-worthy Western looks are all the rage this season, and Polyvore users are taking note.

Whether it's the all-denim look or fringe boots, turquoise jewelry or moccasin shoes, the community is clearly drawing inspiration from the world of trappers, cowboys, and Native Americans. Further proof of this growing trend is the increasing popularity of brands associated with this spirit such as jeans label Wrangler, which saw a month-over-month rise in Facebook fans of 56 percent, according to the Stylophane Facebook Fashion Index.

Top brands are however all hailing from the Old Continent this week, with not a single non-European label being represented in the ranking.
