Customise Wingpanel step-by-step by Gemneroth Customise Wingpanel step-by-step by Gemneroth
A lot of people ask how to change the colour and style of wingpanel in elementaryOS so here is a little tutorial to explain how it's done.

YOU WILL NEED:
A file manager (this tutorial uses elementary's pantheon-files)
A terminal
A text editor
Elementary Tweaks:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:versable/elementary-update
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks

I've included a .zip that contains the Milk Light theme I made in this (just copy it in (as an admin) with the rest of the themes in /usr/share/themes),
this tutorial and a separate copy of the "apps.css" file you use to customise the panel in case you want to play around without changing anything.

".composited-indicator {
    background-color: transparent;
    color: #fff;
    padding: 0 0px;"

It's that padding part so normally that's as small as it would go, I think changing the indicator/text size would then let it be smaller. I know the whit-e theme has a padding of 2px and that's noticeably larger
