Hi,

Here's a slightly more flexible option, even though it requires a bit more work: Drag your photo or clip to the New Item button at the bottom of the Project panel.

Create a new title while your sequence is active; this will enter the dimensions of the sequence into the dimensions of the title. Name it something like "border" or "frame."

I had a crop with a circular mask that I wanted a stroke on and had success using 2 drop shadows, one along the top and bottom edge.  It gave it a nice style effect as it wasn't a perfect stroke around the whole clip.  I could see using 4 drop shadows for perfection, but two did the trick for me.

That is very creative and takes a bit of time for frame shapes and sizes. Check youtube and there are other too. Pity Adobe has no border even to their PIP effects. Most editing program have.

But the Newbluefx makes multiple sizes very easy and you will save time and do more. I use PIP a lot for my TV Programs and lots of sizes shapes, circles, diamonds. multi screens with borders and shadows. Premiere is good but the plugins make it better.

Way easier soltion! 
1. Duplicate the layer
2. On the bottom layer use the scale (uncheck uniform scale) to make your bottom layer slightly larger.
3. Use curves and exposure in lumetri colour to make the bottom layer white
