I've always liked the design of the TMP uniforms, but was left flat by the color schemes. Christopher is right in that the colors look much better in the new DVD version, but they still look a bit bland to my eye. Perhaps because the TOS uniforms and the later movie era uniforms had such vivid colors in them. I do agree that the TWOK+ uniforms are a bit too fancy for regular duty uniforms, though I do like the design as a dress uniform.
A while back I did a photoshop of what the TMP uniforms might look like with a bit more vivid color, as well as adding some color to the bridge:
