I am writing a WordPress plugin which will have some front-end pages including inputs, forms, buttons etc. The plugin should be usable with different themes.

But I am confused or don't know how to design the frontend pages since I don't know which CSS styles/classes can be used. And if I use my custom CSS styles that may look awkward with the current theme.

What is the best practice in this case?

Thanks for your answer

You can't know this, not without knowing which plugins and themes there are installed. Prefix your classes so they're unique and it becomes a non-issue.

And if I use my custom CSS styles that may look awkward with the current theme.

Someone somewhere can write a theme that will look awkward. This isn't a WordPress problem but one of CSS specificity.
