as user stuporglue already mentioned the style is not a specific wfs-t issue, but you can just have a look at a nice website with Information about the Feature-Style and Stylemaps: http://www.peterrobins.co.uk/it/olstyle.html

For your Vector-/WFS-T-Layer you could use something like that:

var defStyle = {
    fillColor: "#ff0000",
    strokeColor: "green",
    strokeOpacity: "0.7",
    strokeWidth: 3,
    cursor: "pointer"
var sty = OpenLayers.Util.applyDefaults(defStyle, OpenLayers.Feature.Vector.style["default"]);

var sm = new OpenLayers.StyleMap({
    'default': sty,
    'select': {
        strokeColor: "red",
        fillColor: "green"

wfs = new OpenLayers.Layer.Vector("Editable Features", {
    styleMap: sm,
    strategies: [new OpenLayers.Strategy.BBOX(), saveStrategy],
    projection: new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:4326"),
    protocol: new OpenLayers.Protocol.WFS({
        version: "1.1.0",
        srsName: "EPSG:4326",
        url: "http://demo.boundlessgeo.com/geoserver/wfs",
        featureNS: "http://opengeo.org",
        featureType: "restricted",
        geometryName: "the_geom",
        schema: "http://demo.boundlessgeo.com/geoserver/wfs/DescribeFeatureType?version=1.1.0&typename=og:restricted"

Here's a working example of mine with a vector-layer-stylemap:

This isn't a WFS-T issue, just an OpenLayers issue. WFS-T is just the protocol for creating, editing and deleting features, it doesn't affect how the feature is displayed by OpenLayers.
