    Your theme doesn't seem to add any CSS class to your widget containers. I would suggest that you look at how widget areas are registered in Twenty Twelve:

    Once you add CSS classes to each widget area, it will be easier to customize the look of your theme to fit your needs.

    If you do not wish to make changes to your theme, you can use the CSS editor under Appearance > Edit CSS, to style the subscription widget like so:

    .widget input[type="text"], .widget input[type="email"] {
        font-family: Georgia,"Times New Roman",Times,serif;
        font-size: 10px;
        line-height: 18px;
        margin: 5px 0 10px;
        min-height: 18px;
        position: relative;
        text-transform: uppercase;
        width: 208px;
    .widget input[type="submit"] {
        background: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , #FFFFFF 0%, #E2E2E2) repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
        border: 1px solid #AAAAAA;
        border-radius: 4px 4px 4px 4px;
        color: #3E4B57 !important;
    height: 27px !important;
        text-shadow: 0 0 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.7), 0 1px 0 rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.3);
    .widget #subscribe-blog p {
        margin-bottom: 0;

    I only picked a few of the existing CSS rules applied to your other widgets, but you can customize it further of course! :)
