How style() works

Here's how you would write the if statement in Notion: style(value, style_1, style_2, …., style_n)
The style formula accepts several parameters: 'value', which represents the text you want to format. You can directly input the text into the formula field, like "Example", or it can be a Text property. In that case, input it as prop("Example"), assuming "Example" is a text property.
The following style_1, style_2, …., style_n are the style formatting options you can apply.
