Or, it may be that the colored tunic is worn only by personnel while actively serving aboard a vessel.

Think about it. We saw a variety of uniforms in the first film, and the only place we saw people wearing the TOS-derived color-coded tunic was aboard the Enterprise itself. When we saw those same officers in other situations - Pike, Spock, Uhura, Scotty - they wore different uniforms or clothing. The same appears to be true in photographs from the second movie.
Combined with the budget to have more than one uniform type, that makes sense. You don't see personnel on aircraft carriers wearing their green, purple, red, yellow, etc. color-coded uniforms off ship (or even off duty).
