Adding A Boarder For Colour Swatches

1 0 1

Hi guys,


On our product pages, we have colour swatches like shown below, sometimes using html colour codes and sometimes using files (for the multi-coloured products). The white color swatch is invisible because the main background colour of our site is white, and we also don't like the look of the colour swatches that are half white. How can I add a thin black line to all swatches, not just the selected colour (grey in the example below)? 

I would appreciate your help.

Hi @zieglj

Here a thing, when you selected a color there is a border color black. What I did I colored it red. and the none selected color black border. You can change the color you like. 

  • From your Shopify admin dashboard, click on "Online Store" and then "Themes".
  • Find the theme that you want to edit and click on "Actions" and then "Edit code".
  • In the "Assets" folder, click on "base.css, style.css or theme.css" file, depending on which file your theme uses to store its CSS styles. At the bottom of the file, add the following CSS code:


:checked+.color-swatch, {
    border-color: red;
.rounded-full {
    border: 1px solid black;


  • And Save. 
  • Result;
