Styling Search bar

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I am trying to style the search bar (see attachments).

I want to add a top-margin to align with breadcrumbs - and make it a bit smaller (at least width).

I have tried to override the sp-search class with no effect.
Any ideas?

Found it (in case other needs the info):

.sp-search {margin-top: 5px;}

Use the browser code inspector, that would find the right selector and choose the appropriate values of css properties
