Christopher & Banks and its plus-size division, CJ Banks, may be an online retailer that you have overlooked if you are not from the Midwest and familiar with the name.

This Minneapolis-based store has been around for a while, so you don't have to worry about buying from a fly-by-night Internet company. Gil Braun opened the first store in that city in 1956.

Christopher & Banks states, "We offer updated classic styling in quality products at a great value.

"We provide a fresh and colorful mix of clothing and accessories for every season, creating looks that work for your lifestyle."

Three Fashion Archetypes that May Like These Clothing Lines

Fashion After 50 has been featuring products from Christopher & Banks and CJ Banks for a few years now. The prices are mid-range.

Many of the shirts, sweaters, and bottoms will likely appeal to the sporty Artemis fashion archetype, such as camp shirts and seersucker garments in the summer.

The classic dresses and skirts are perfect for Hestia, who often wants comfortable clothes for the home and nearby places, and Sophia, who keeps it simple. The styles are, as Christopher & Banks says for the record, classic.

Skirts, slacks, shorts, sets, and accessories - this womens fashion retailer offers a complete line of products.

Shop Locally at More than 700 Locations

If you want to check out their products before purchasing, you can look for a location near you. From that one store in Minneapolis, Christopher & Banks has grown to 686 store locations, plus 62 dual locations for both Christopher & Banks and CJ Banks, and 23 outlet stores.
