I would say that you could use a TextBlock in the ListBox item template, with different Run elements that have different styles applied.

XAML example:

<TextBlock.Inlines>
            <Run FontWeight="Bold" FontSize="14" Text="This is WPF TextBlock Example. " />
            <Run FontStyle="Italic" Foreground="Red" Text="This is red text. " />
            <Run FontStyle="Italic" FontSize="18" Text="Here is some linear gradient text. ">
                <Run.Foreground>
                    <LinearGradientBrush>
                        <GradientStop Color="Green" Offset="0.0" />
                        <GradientStop Color="Purple" Offset="0.25" />
                        <GradientStop Color="Orange" Offset="0.5" />
                        <GradientStop Color="Blue" Offset="0.75" />
                    </LinearGradientBrush>
                </Run.Foreground>
            </Run>
            <Run FontStyle="Italic" Foreground="Green" Text="How about adding some green? " />
        </TextBlock.Inlines>
