CSS Border Shorthand Property

While we believe that this content benefits our community, we have not yet thoroughly reviewed it. If you have any suggestions for improvements, please let us know by clicking the “report an issue“ button at the bottom of the tutorial.

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.
