Styling of Sidebar Nav:-

 /* Primary Styles */
*, *::before, *::after {
box-sizing: border-box;
}
body {
font-family: sans-serif;
font-size: 1em;
color: #333;
}
h1 {
font-size: 1.4em;
}
em {
font-style: normal;
}
a {
text-decoration: none;
color: inherit;
}
/* Layout */
.s-layout {
display: flex;
width: 100%;
min-height: 100vh;
}
.s-layout__content {
display: flex;
justify-content: center;
align-items: center;
flex: 1;
}
/* Sidebar */
.s-sidebar__trigger {
z-index: 2;
position: fixed;
top: 0;
left: 0;
width: 100%;
height: 4em;
background: #000;
}
.s-sidebar__trigger > i {
display: inline-block;
margin: 1.5em 0 0 1.5em;
color: #ffff;
}
.s-sidebar__nav {
position: fixed;
top: 0;
left: -15em;
overflow: hidden;
transition: all .3s ease-in;
width: 15em;
height: 100%;
background: #007ff5;
color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7);
}
.s-sidebar__nav:hover,
.s-sidebar__nav:focus,
.s-sidebar__trigger:focus + .s-sidebar__nav,
.s-sidebar__trigger:hover + .s-sidebar__nav {
left: 0;
}
.s-sidebar__nav ul {
position: absolute;
top: 4em;
left: 0;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
width: 15em;
}
.s-sidebar__nav ul li {
width: 100%;
}
.s-sidebar__nav-link {
position: relative;
display: inline-block;
width: 100%;
height: 4em;
}
.s-sidebar__nav-link em {
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
left: 4em;
transform: translateY(-50%);
}
.s-sidebar__nav-link:hover {
background: #4d6276;
}
.s-sidebar__nav-link > i {
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
display: inline-block;
width: 4em;
height: 4em;
}
.s-sidebar__nav-link > i::before {
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
left: 50%;
transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
}

Styling gives us an awesome and targeted goal look for us so I hope you know about the basics of css like position, top, left, transform, inline-block, width, height, background or overflow, etc. after we also do media-query styling for responsiveness.

If we need to create a mobile-first design so need to code some media queries using a minimum of 42 rem, or 62 rem, or do some display, width, top, or margin, this is ready to get a look.
