Adjust them from custom.css in the site assets/css directory:

├── archetypes
├── assets
│   └── css
│       └── custom.css
├── content

If the file doesn’t exist yet, copy it from the theme default:

$ mkdir -p assets/css
$ cp themes/after-dark/assets/css/custom.css assets/css

Then open the file and begin editing, or remove it to restore default styles.

Tip: Choose from thousands of predefined color palettes on coolors.co/.
