How can I add a margin here to create space between my label and select menu?


I need a margin between my label "state' and the select menu form. My attempts are not working, any suggestions?

<div class="state"> <label for="state">State:</label><br>

            <select id="state" name="user_state" value ="">
                <option value="Choose-state">Choose State</option>
                <option value="Mississippi">Mississippi</option>
                <option value="Washington">Washington</option>
                <option value="Oklahoma">Oklahoma</option>
                <option value="Texas">Texas</option>
                <option value="Virgina">Virgina</option>

There are several options. But perhaps the easiest is an extra <br>.

<label for="state">State:</label><br><br>

If you need a finer adjustment, you could also use CSS.
