Even the demo provided on this site does not stylize the upload control.

Hello Evan,

File input elements cannot be styled. What we do in our Upload component is to hide the real file input with an opacity:0 style and place it over some other HTML markup, which can be styled in a random fashion. You should be seeing a styled "Select" button in all of our demos. If you want to customize the appearance of the Upload component, you should style the alternative markup that is positioned behind the file input element.

<div class="t-widget t-upload">
       <div class="t-button t-upload-button">
               <span>Select...</span>
               <input type="file" name="attachments" id="attachments">
       </div>
</div>

All the best,
