Does anyone know of any patterns that can make something like this? Doesn't have to be exactly the same but I need a pattern as a starting point. What is this style called anyway?

Very pretty! It looks like the layers are columns (or up and down rows) of chiffon ruffles sewn onto an ordinary full skirt.

This is an easy look to recreate. The chiffon ruffles are just deep rectangles of fabric. One long edge of the rectangle is sewn to the skirt in an up and down pattern.

I suggest buying a yard or so of chiffon and a yard or so of satin or something similar for the underskirt. Cut the chiffon into wide rectangles. Finish one long edge of the rectangle with a lettuce hem, and pin or baste the other long edge to the satin fabric. Hold the satin up like a skirt, and see what you've got. Experiment with different depths of  rectangles and different patterns of attaching them.

Or, if you have a lot of time, sewingpatterns.com has literally thousands of dress and skirt patterns. Look for one that attaches flounces to the outside of the skirt.
