border-box is slightly better since that does not affect the box-sizes. And using a weird color like light-green works usually best for me.

outline: 1px solid #f00 is my go-to for this since the outline doesn't affect size, and #f00 is just kinda fun to type instead of red :)

Borders will potentially change the layout of some elements. Use outline instead!
