After I set these environment variables clementine changed the theme to oxygen:

export GTK_RC_FILES="/etc/gtk/gtkrc:$HOME/.gtkrc:$HOME/.kde4/share/config/gtkrc"
export GTK2_RC_FILES="/etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0:$HOME/.kde4/share/config/gtkrc-2.0"
export QT_PLUGIN_PATH="$HOME/.kde4/lib/kde4/plugins/:/usr/lib/kde4/plugins/"

I edit ~/.profile to changes it permanent:

if [ "$XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP" == "i3" ] ; then

export GTK_RC_FILES="/etc/gtk/gtkrc:$HOME/.gtkrc:$HOME/.kde4/share/config/gtkrc"
export GTK2_RC_FILES="/etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0:$HOME/.kde4/share/config/gtkrc-2.0"
export QT_PLUGIN_PATH="$HOME/.kde4/lib/kde4/plugins/:/usr/lib/kde4/plugins/"
fi

For gtk2-Applications:

vim ~/.gtkrc-2.0

include "/usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"

style "user-font" {
        font_name = "Sans Serif  11"

}

widget_class "*" style "user-font"

gtk-font-name="Sans Serif  11"

include "/home/$USER/.gtkrc.mine"

For gtk3-Applications: since gtk3-16+ oxygen is no longer supported and doesn't work, so you can't use it, but to change the theme you can edit ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini, for more information see: wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Uniform_Look_for_Qt_and_GTK_Applications

Having a full kde installation I can run systemsettings and configure it under application appearance. Probably not the most helpful answer.
