You don’t need to make any changes to the style.css of the main theme, the ONLY thing you need to worry about is using the following functions where necessary


get_template_directory() get_template_directory_uri()
// So you can specifically point to the main theme’s directories if specifically needed to call something from there

get_stylesheet_directory() get_stylesheet_directory_ui()
// either the main theme if child theme doesn’t exist OR if a child theme exists use that directory first
