I was looking for the css file nav items and found this :

 * See COPYING.txt for license details.
/** @var $block \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Links */
<?php /** @var $block \Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Navigation */ ?>
<div class="block account-nav">
    <div class="title">
        <strong><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('My Account'); ?></strong>
    <div class="content">
        <nav class="account-nav">
            <ul class="nav items">
                <?php echo $block->getChildHtml();?>
