I know they're not very fashionable anymore. But I still tie and fish catskill style flies almost exclusively.
They work for me!

While I fish a lot of parachutes and comparaduns, the OP asked "Favorite Style Dry to Tie"

That would be catskill ties. Take a look and behold the Red Quill Catskill tie posted by GenCon below.

A thing of beauty.

Well - the OP did state in his initial post that parachutes are his favorite style to tie - and fish.

For me - I really enjoy tying flies that work.
IMO, there's nothing like coming back from a successful fishing trip, and having to retie a lot of a certain pattern that the fish really jumped on - and need replaced!

I've tied some very elaborate patterns, that looked really neat. And couldn't wait for the time to try them out.
Only to find out that they don't work very well at all!

My favorite tie is a cut wing Adams tied thorax style with a split tail and the hackle cut flush on the bottom. I use micro fibets for the tail and grizzly hen hackle for the wings. Muskrat dubbing. It looks like so many kinds of trout food, emerger, caddis, mayfly, you name it.

Mainly flies that incorporate deer hair for a wing, like Sparkle Duns, Letort Hoppers, X-Caddis, etc.
Thorax style flies would be a close second.

If I could tie catskill style as well GenCon, those would be my favorite as well. Its humbling to look at to be honest.

I think I'm in the minority that I don't tie parachutes at all. I can tie them, but I can tie comparaduns much faster, and for flies size 18 to 12 I haven't found many fish that won't eat them.

I enjoy tying cdc dries and emergers. But I also tie a lot of parachutes for blind casting to likely spots. Well proportioned Catskill dries are gorgeous, but I'm not very good at tying them, and I don't have as much confidence in fishing them.
