You can override all the class names injected by Material-UI thanks to the classes property. This property accepts the following keys:

Name Description
root Styles applied to the root element.
selected Styles applied to the root element if selected={true}.

Have a look at overriding with classes section and the implementation of the component for more detail.

If using the overrides key of the theme as documented here, you need to use the following style sheet name: MuiMenuItem.


The properties of the ListItem component are also available. You can take advantage of this behavior to target nested components.
