How to remove (dequeue) The Events Calendar's and PRO's styles.
// If you use this snippet as-is, ALL of The Events Calendar (i.e. "Core") and Pro add-on styles will NOT be loaded.
// (although there may be some $handles that I didn't detect... especially from widgets, shortcodes, and the like... no guarantess ;-)
// Comment out the line of each style you DO want to load.
// Note the comments within each array regarding the Display style options --
// The Display styles are "stacked".
// In other words, the Skeleton files are always loaded, and the Full styles are loaded when Tribe Events Styles (i.e. Theme) is selected.
// However, the commented .css example file names can change, e.g. 'full.min.css' instead of 'skeleton.min.css' or 'theme-mobile.min.css' instead of 'full-mobile.min.css'
