Syntax
      outline-color: color | invert | inherit ;

color - The color of the outline.
invert - Set the outline color to an inversion of the background color.
inherit - Inherit the property from a parent element.

The outline-style property must be set before any outline color properties can be applied.
The transparent keyword maps to rgb(0,0,0).

Examples:
h1 { outline-color: rgb(0,255,0); }
.ss64class { outline-color: #93622f; }

#SS64id { outline-color: #2b5e55; }

Try it:

Outlines differ from borders in that they do not take up space, they are drawn above the content and extend out towards the margin.
