It looks like this trend will be sticking around for another fall/winter season! Whether you love or hate this trend, capes and ponchos were even more prevalent on the AW2011 runways this year than last year (Above: Zac Posen; Rachel Roy; Rebecca Minkoff; Michael Kors). And they are appearing in even more styles, lengths, colors, and patterns. I haven't purchased a cape or poncho myself, but I'm not ruling it out completely. It all comes down to finding the right one!
