Because they hadn't made enough of the new uniforms for the extras yet.
I require an in-universe explanation. To me, real life answers do not count.
They were Class A uniforms that were only worn by department heads?
No, because every lowly crewman who had a spoken line wore the new uniforms, and a lieutenant in the background wore the old ones. There was one episode (Hollow Pursuits, IIRC) where all of Geordi's grunts had the new uniforms, but Crusher's nurses were still in the old uniforms. It really was a background vs. main character sort of thing - not really rank.
