This picture:
shows to the left QGIS 2.18/Qt4 in which I could choose (I'm on Debian 
here) several Styles. To the right is current Master/Qt5 in which I can 
only choose between 'Fusion' and 'Windows' (last one being nice on 
windows, but really ugly on my Gnome desktop here).

I think I like the gtk+/adwaita theme better then the Fusion one in 
master, but I'm wondering if on Windows/Mac it is the same...

FYI: some googling showed me I had to install adwaita theme as a 
separate package, to make it look 'good' again:

adwaita-icon-theme - default icon theme of GNOME
adwaita-qt - Qt 5 port of GNOME’s Adwaita theme
adwaita-qt-data - Qt 5 port of GNOME’s Adwaita theme — data files

apparently with the Fusion theme Qt tries to create a 'general usable' 
style for Qt applications
