Finding latest fashion trend at a reduced price

One of the must haves this fall season is capes and ponchos. And whatever your age, from teenagers to seniors, this versatile piece of clothing can really add to your wardrobe during the cooler weather months.

It's a look that many women love.

"I like the fact that they are versatile, you can dress them up and dress them down," said shopper Shaundra Hinson.

Even teenagers find the ponchos stylish.

"I like the kind of loose fitting thing, they look cute with leggings and stuff," said a young shopper.

Some of the designer's ponchos and capes we found online cost hundreds of dollars. We found the look for less at Southwest Trading Accessory Plaza off Harwin for as little as $12.

Over at Sam Moon off the Katy Freeway near Bunker Hill, we found a big selection of ponchos and capes for every style. Prices start at just 12 here too.

And if you think you can't wear the pancho everywhere, think again. Over at Lavo Collections in Rice Village we met up with personal stylist Ursaline Hamilton.

"So I thought this was a great look for a trend going into an evening," Hamilton said. "It's a simple little black and white dress."

Ursaline says you can pull a black poncho over the dress and you're covered for an evening out.

"And just pulling it off the shoulder to show off that we have that strapless dress on just shows a little more skin," said Hamilton.

For the office you can take the same poncho, this time in a different color, and pair it with black leggings and a black tank.

"Adding a skinny belt just dresses it up a bit and pulls it with the bracelets," Hamilton said.

The same look can be worn another way with a poncho. This time add metallic leggings and layered necklaces.

"It's $28 and it's such a great piece and we have shown it three different ways," she said.
