It is a manip, but I agree to some degree. I don't think they should all be in completely different colors, but more of a combination of colors that share a theme.

The black leather with colored piping was a starting point, but the costumer was so lazy that she just gave the girls one costume and the boys another (except for in X1 where Cyke and Logan had different uniforms).

My suggestion would be to have the costumes be two-part... maybe an outer, more functional part that's like a shell and then an inner part which is more like the body suit. The outer would be a darker shade (probably black) and the inner suit could be the (subtly) individualized part.
