There's an option called DefaultNewInlineCellStyle which you can set either
programmatically or via the option inspector.  By default, it causes no style at
all to be applied to inline cells (or, as you call them, inline formulae), but
that's easy to change.  E.g.,

 DefaultNewInlineCellStyle -> "InlineFormula"]

Note that this only affects content you create after changing the setting. It
causes no changes to be made to existing inline cells/formulae.
