The example case to be used is for icons style properties.

The following class describes the differentiation of style properties between classes.

  • Block icons
  • Icon that has border-radius
  • Big icon
  • Icon that has a brand color


.icon {
  &-block {
    display: block;
  &-lg {
    font-size: 2.5em;
  &-radius {
    border-radius: 50%;
    border: 1px solid $grey;
    padding: 12px;

  &-brand {
    border-color: $brand_color;
    &:before {
      color: $brand_color;

Normal practise
<div class="col-md-4 text-center">
 <span class="icon-block icon-lg icon-radius icon-brand ion-thumbsup"></span>Regulated

Better practise
Instead of calling each of classes individually,  you can combined all classes for better architecture and optimization with the following methods
.icon-sidebar {
  @extend .icon-block;
  @extend .icon-lg;
  @extend .icon-radius;
  @extend .icon-brand;

The combined classes has a new class!
<div class="col-md-4 text-center">
 <span class="icon-sidebar ion-thumbsup"></span>Regulated
