How to Custom Style React Components

by vsasikalabe Updated: Jan 24, 2023

Custom styles can be applied in a variety of ways to React components. Here are a few typical methods:


  • Inline styles: can be applied to a component using the style attribute. It's beneficial for straightforward styles that only affect one component.
  • CSS stylesheets: Using the link tag in the head of your HTML file, you may construct a CSS stylesheet and link it to your React application. Then, you may apply styles to your components by using class names.
  • CSS modules: You can apply styles to your components by using CSS modules. The class names are immediately scoped to the component when you import CSS from a stylesheet into a component using CSS modules. Conflicts between class names in various components are avoided as a result.
  • Styled components: To apply styles to your components, use a library like styled-components. With the help of the well-known package styled-components, you can apply CSS styling to your React components by writing it in JavaScript code. Conflicts between class names in various components can be avoided by using this feature to define styled components that automatically have their styles scoped to the component.


Which strategy you go for will depend on your requirements and preferences. If necessary, you can combine these strategies in your app.


The following gives an example of how to use ReactJs' styled component to individually style components in your application:
