Re: Question about uniform changes

It seems like the TNG style was appropriate for Earth, but officers stationed on starships or starbases could wear whatever the commanding officer thought was appropriate for the setting.
Yes, I think this is how it works on modern day US Navy vessels, for example. They have the 'uniform of the day', which is basically whatever the captain says it is.

It's not unlike professional sports teams wearing alternate uniforms on special days (Sunday day games, for instance).
Or the 1979 Pirates, who wore whatever Willie Stargell wanted.
