Change general font color

I want to change the general font color. However it is still overriden. When i set the font color individually it works.
So far I’ve tried the following in the styles.scss:

$v-font-size: 14px;
$v-font-color: #1d1d1d;

@import "animations.css";
@import "addons.scss";
@import "themename.scss";

/* This file prefixes all rules with the theme name to avoid causing conflicts with other themes. */
/* The actual styles should be defined in bgpdfcatapptheme.scss */
.themename {
@include addons;
@include themename;
