In this article, we would like to show you how to override the default alignment for the indicated element in CSS.

Quick solution:

.container {
    display: flex;          /*  <----- required			*/
}

.item1 {
    /* ... */
}

.item2 {
    align-self: flex-start; /*  <----- required			*/
}

.item3 {
    /* ... */
}

Practical example

In this example, we use flexbox self-align property to override default alignment specified for all items inside the container for an individual element.

align-self property values:

  • auto
  • flex-start
  • flex-end
  • center
  • baseline
  • stretch

In this case, we override center alignment with flex-start alignment for item2.
