    In order to change the field highlight color you will have to inject the following CSS code:

    .form-line-error input:not(#coupon-input),  .form-line-error textarea,  .form-line-error .form-validation-error {

        border: 1px solid #007cba!important;

        -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 3px #007cba!important;

        -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 3px #007cba;

        box-shadow: 0 0 3px #007cba;


    .form-textbox:focus, .form-textarea:focus {

        border: 1px solid #007cba!important;

        outline: none;


    To inject the CSS code follow this guide:

    To make all the fields required you will have to check the required option for every field in a form.
