In the military I wasted my time in (German Air Force) everything deviating from the official uniform had to be approved by a certain office (as badges for instance). Some pilots had scarfs though, and as long as the superiors didnt complain about it...
PS: But religious symbols where not allowed, as long as not worn underneath of the shirt (as crosses and such).
I seem to rember a season 1 TNG episode that gave Worf leeway because he was the first Klingon serving in Starfleet. I could be wrong.
