Custom theme

For example just override this class in your style

.vue-quick-edit__link--is-clickable {
  color: #BADA55;

Bootstrap theme

Set up the classes for the corresponding elements

vueQuickEditClasses: {
  wrapper: 'form-group form-inline',
  input: 'form-control input-sm',
  buttons: 'btn-group btn-group-sm',
  buttonOk: 'btn btn-primary',
  buttonCancel: 'btn btn-link',

Maybe add specific overrides for bootstrap

.form-group {
  margin-bottom: 0;
.btn-group {
  display: inline-block;

Use it like this

<quick-edit :classes="vueQuickEditClasses"><quick-edit>
