Right-click on a control on the XAML design surface and select Edit Style or Edit Template (depending on the control you are right-clicking on).

You can then apply an existing style by selecting Apply Resource, or define a new style by selecting Create Empty.

If you create an empty style, you are given the option to define it in the page, in the App.xaml file, or in a separate resource dictionary.
