Basic usage

Setting the border style

Use border-{style} to control an element’s border style.





<div class="border-solid border-2 border-indigo-600 ..."></div>
<div class="border-dashed border-2 border-indigo-600 ..."></div>
<div class="border-dotted border-2 border-indigo-600 ..."></div>
<div class="border-double border-4 border-indigo-600 ..."></div>

No style

Use border-none to remove an existing border style from an element.

This is most commonly used to remove a border style that was applied at a smaller breakpoint.

<button class="border-none ...">Save Changes</button>

Applying conditionally

Hover, focus, and other states

Tailwind lets you conditionally apply utility classes in different states using variant modifiers. For example, use hover:border-dotted to only apply the border-dotted utility on hover.

<div class="border-solid hover:border-dotted">
  <!-- ... -->

For a complete list of all available state modifiers, check out the Hover, Focus, & Other States documentation.

Breakpoints and media queries

You can also use variant modifiers to target media queries like responsive breakpoints, dark mode, prefers-reduced-motion, and more. For example, use md:border-dotted to apply the border-dotted utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="border-solid md:border-dotted">
  <!-- ... -->
