The CSS border shorthand is a simple one and allows you to combine border-width, border-style and border-color into one property:

border: 5px dashed #DF5B9C;

Each side also has a shorthand:

border-bottom: 2px solid #00BDA7;

Border-style

border-style can take one of the following values: dashed, dotted, double, groove, ridge, inset, outset, solid, hidden, none, initial or inherit.
