Font Style

Utilities for controlling the style of text.

Class reference

Class Properties
.italic font-style: italic;
.not-italic font-style: normal;

No Italics Default

Use the .not-italic utility to display text normally. This is typically used to reset italic text at different breakpoints.

Italics

Use the .italic utility to make text italic.

<p class="italic ...">The quick brown fox ...</p>

Responsive

To control the font style of an element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing font style utility. For example, use md:italic to apply the italic utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

Responsive and State Variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for font style utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the font style utilities by modifying the fontStyle property in the variants section of your tailwind.config.js file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
variants: {
    // ...
-   fontStyle: ['responsive'],
+   fontStyle: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus'],
}
}

Disabling

If you don't plan to use the font style utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the fontStyle property to false in the corePlugins section of your config file:

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
corePlugins: {
    // ...
+   fontStyle: false,
}
}
