So you've created your brand-spankin' new SquareSpace website and styled it perfectly to match your brand with font pairings, gorgeous colors and a lovely layout. BUT, you can't get those pesky social media icons to match your pretty palette. Don't worry! I've gotcher back.

There's a tiny string of code that you can use to change the SquareSpace social media icons from black and blah to any color you want! Follow the steps below on your own site and voila, styled social icons!

Here are the deets:

  1. In the backend of your SquareSpace site, navigate to DESIGN.
  2. Click on CUSTOM CSS.
  3. Pas te in this bit of code:

.sqs-use--icon {     fill: #F65959 !important; } .sqs-svg-icon--wrapper:hover {   .sqs-use--icon {     fill: #444 !important; } }

The bolded HEX color is what you'll need to change to match your own color palette. If your not sure what HEX your color is, check out this handy converter.

That's it! You're set.
