    http://contactform7.com/faq/#Why_does_my_email_address_input_field_look_different gives you some guidance on how make these fields look the same in your current WordPress theme.

    The actual look of CF7 forms on your website will depend largely on the current WordPress theme used and the CSS styling that theme applies to standard HTML form elements.

    See Styling Contact Form for a general explanation of styling CF7 forms using CSS.

    There is a link at the bottom of the page to a comprehensive and detailed article on Styling Contact Form 7 Forms. The article shows people, with suitable HTML & CSS skills, how to change the appearance of their Contact Form 7 Forms to meet their particular requirements.
