There are many different styles (or ways to dress) in the world. Here you can find a list of them, each coming with a short description. Some of them are very well known, some of them are quite unusal. Some of them I even made or named myself.
I call them ‘style personalities’ because I believe that each and every style reflects its wearer´s personality and lifestyle and thus I will include that to the description as well as the visual characteristics of each style.
If you want to know how to determine which style (or to be more precise style combination as I believe there is no one-style-only-person, as everyone is special) is suitable for you please read the ‘Discovering of Style’ and ‘Basics of Style’ sections first.

I also want to mention there are various style typologies with their own styles, combinations of styles and/or their own take on already existing and popular styles (like romantic). I won’t dive too deep into them for now, so here comes the brief overview at least:
David Kibbe’s 13 Body Types Theory: probably the most famous of them all, it contains 5 basic and 8 combined types and it was extended by various authors and stylists, f. e. new style combinations and two brand new styles (ingenue and ethereal) were included
Dressing Your Truth from Carol Tuttle consists of four types, apparently based on personality traits, it determines suitable colors, prints, kinds of clothes, but appart from that it looks noticably similar to Seasonal Color Typology (and in my opinion, the four types are too limitative to really characterize anyone)O
