TwentyFifteen uses the Noto Serif font. It looks swish and comes with an Apache license, and it can be pulled from Google Fonts too. It’s a fine font indeed – but individuals that we are, it may not be for everybody.
It’s easy to change it to something else though, and in this article I’ll show you how.
By default, TwentyFifteen and Noto Serif looks like this:
If we want to change this to something else, we must first import said font into our style sheet, and then declare it for a couple of classes. In this example I’m going to use Lato, another fabulous font that’s featured in the TwentyFourteen theme:
I’ve never liked themes with sidebars on the left – probably because we in the western world start reading on the left, and I’d like there to be as little clutter as possible. Or perhaps I’m used to navigation items on the right.

Add these declarations to your own TwentyFifteen Child Theme and you’re good to go. If added via a CSS widget or to the bottom of the original theme (which is a really bad idea), additional “!important” statements may be necessary.
Kudos to toschero and Anteru for the combined solution to this puzzle. Check out the full discussion here:
