Styling a Select Like It’s 2019 (Filament Group, Inc.)

Direct Link

Recently, we’d seen some articles suggest that things haven’t changed a great deal with select's styling limitations, but I decided to return to the problem and tinker with it myself to be sure. As it turns out, a reasonable set of styles can create a consistent and attractive select across new browsers, while remaining just fine in older ones too.

Here’s a breakthrough in the always-frustrating field of styling form elements. Scott Jehl of Filament Group introduces a new technique for styling the select element in a modern way without the need for a parent element, pseudo-elements, or javascript. Thanks, Scott!
