The black leather costumes (yes, costumes) give off the sense of stealth and maybe kevlar.

The FC costumes were modified flight suits. Notice Moira was wearing a normal flight suit because she wasn't going into combat (and yes, also not a superhero).
I also said they wear the costumes because they are the X-Men and like def28, those costumes are there to solidify them as a team.
