Reusable Styling for Containers

In my designs there are types of containers which always have the same style but different contents (e.g. same corner radius, same color, same shadow, same border width, same padding). I haven’t found a good way to save such a collection of styles to make it reusable.

If I make a component to add this styling to my library, I have to break it to add content. This means the connection to the component is broken and the styling won’t update if I change anything. On the other hand I can only save parts of the styling as actual styles (color, shadow).

I’d also love to use something like this with the plugin themer. E.g.: One theme would have rounded corners and shadows and another one would have square corners and no shadows.

Has anybody found a nice way to add reusable container elements to their library?
