@aparnaa, for picking up on CSS Styling (specially in Splunk's context to begin with), you can try out following places:

1) Splunk Dashboard Examples App on Splunkbase (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1603/) has Custom Layout Dark example which deals with several CSS style options.
2) Use your Browser Inspector tool to highlight a DOM element to Inspect existing CSS Style applicable and override using CSS selectors.
3) Check out W3 Schools to understand and try out various CSS Selectors: https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_selectors.asp

Based on the question you require the following CSS Style to be applied. PS: Style can be applied
i) Directly within HTML DOM Element like <div id="myDiv" style="font-weight:bold;color:white;">
ii) Using style tag within HTML panel in Splunk Simple XML Dashboard. (PS: It is better to always hide HTML panel with CSS Style through depends attribute in Splunk).
iii) Using a css stylesheet saved in Splunk App's static folder and referring the same in your form/dashboard like <form stylesheet="my_custom_style.css">. Your App's static folder path should typically be $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<YourAppName>/appserver/static/my_custom_style.css. This approach may require you to refresh/reboot/bump Splunk instance and clear your internet browser history for new changes to reflect.

  <row>
    <panel>
      <html depends="$alwaysHideCSSStyle$">
        <style>
          .dashboard-body {
              background: #1E93C6 !important;
          }

          .dashboard-header h2{
              color: #ffffff !important;
          }          
        </style>
      </html>

Following is the complete Simple XML run anywhere dashboard example code for the screenshot:
