Noun: The basic defining characteristics of a person, everything from talk, dress, hairstyle, demeanor, etc. A majority of the time it is the person's appearance in general and can be categorized (grunge, hippie, preppy, hoochie, nerdy, etc). A few people have their own style which usually makes them unique while most go with whatever is the "in" thing at the time in all the above categories. Can also be used as a compliment (see example #2a and b).

#1b: "Although some may think that Alicia Keys is boring, I must admit that her style is different from most entertainers her age".
