even in the modern military there are numerous variants of uniforms to be worn on different occasions. And these are constantly evolving. I don't think that it's really that out there for Starfleet to have so many variants during the TNG era. If you were to take all the different uniforms that the US Navy issued over the past 10-15 years and put them in the same room, I'd bet an untrained eye wouldn't even be able to tell they were all from the same service. We know from some scenes that the Season 3 style TNG uniform remained in service clear through season 6 of DS9, alongside both the DS9 uniform and later the FC uniform; they weren't phased out as soon as TNG ended.
