How to reorder my divs using only CSS?

To reorder divs using CSS, we use flexbox.

For instance, we write

<div id="flex">
  <div id="a">A</div>
  <div id="b">B</div>
  <div id="c">C</div>
</div>

to add nested divs.

And then we write

#flex {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
}
#a {
  order: 2;
}
#b {
  order: 1;
}
#c {
  order: 3;
}

to make the outer div a flex container with display: flex;.

We make the flex direction vertical with flex-direction: column;.

And then we set the order property for each inner div to set their order in the container.
