2015 was the year Apartment Therapy really hit its stride with the Fashionable People Style Profiles. As someone who likes checking out people's closets just as much as I do the rest of their homes (maybe even more—it's the ex-fashion student in me), I've been loving watching these real-life style profiles roll in.

It makes sense that these posts are so intriguing, because people who care about the style quotient of their home are likely to give the same attention to the way they present themselves. Looking for a bit of wardrobe inspiration? Check out these 12 style profiles—from creative closets nationwide—that we've shared here over the past year.
