Replacing default Social Link icons in header (CSS)

Recommended Posts

Hey! 

I have social links turned on to appear in the header of a site I'm building. Is it possible to replace the svg images for each icon within the CSS? I just want to swap out the default squarespace images for my own design svgs. Nothing else!

I have gone through tutorials to create HTML social icons in the header code and then used CSS to position them - this doesn't work for my site as I have a border around the header and the icons are sitting in the wrong place outside of this border.

Any ideas?
