Global Styling & Typography sections
The basis of every site is a color schema and a successfully chosen font. These two sections will determine the view of whole your site and, as you know, will have the most influence on the first impressions of your visitors.

The choice of icons is not less important because most of users initially viewing your site will first "scan' pages for the visual content. If some part of it will grab their attention, then they will start reading and will be interested in getting acquainted with the content. So, icons is a one of the effective ways to guide users into text information on your site.
Please pay attention to this sections and set up icon setting, that will match your site. Its settings will determine the displaying of icons on your site.
The next important part of your site settings is a User Interface.
