How to set border color in a select in table row

I have a table with one row that has a "select".  I want to change the border of just the "select".  Every solution that I've tried changes the border of the entire row.

Here's the code that I'm using:
<td>
	            <div style="border: 1px solid #ff0000;">
				<select name = "SIC" width = "20%"> 
				<?php	
					//Iterate through Siccode File and populate drop down
					$SqlString1 = "SELECT * FROM siccoder";
					$Siccode_Data = mysql_query($SqlString1,$conn);
					while ($ROW2 = Mysql_fetch_assoc($Siccode_Data, MYSQL_BOTH))
					{
						echo "<option value = \"";
						echo $ROW2['SIC'];
						echo "\"";
						if ($ROW2['SIC'] == $ROW['SICCODE'])
					 	{
							echo " selected";
						}
						echo ">";
						echo $ROW2['DESCR'];
						echo "</option>";
			    	}
 				?>
                </select>
                </div>
			</td>

You would need to give the TD a class or ID to target it else use some jquery

$("[name=SIC]").closest("td").css("border","1px solid black")

By select I am assuming you mean the select dropdown. This css should do it

select[name="SIC"] {
    border: 1px solid red;
}

No points for this, but please get off the MySQL extension.  The official deprecation and removal notice is by now years old, and your scripts will have to be changed.

Dunno why I thought he meant the cell, maybe he because he talks about every cell gets the border.
