According to literarydevices.net, style is the way a writer writes and it is the technique which an individual author uses in his writing. The type of style an author uses varies from person to person because each writer develops their own style over time. There a many base styles that writers often use to create a foundation to build off of. We often learn them in elementary school. There are four basic literary styles: Expository, Descriptive, Persuasive, and Narrative. The website on literary devices I found has many different examples to reference as well as well written definitions on the basics of style.
