Now the internet has gone so far as to “fix” the Captain Marvel costume by photoshopping the pic to make it look more like the classic suit.
As various people have mentioned, it’s probable the Captain Marvel costume is not the final version as the movie does take place in the ’90s.
In addition, it’s highly possible the suit is some sort of prototype suit and/or a Kree war suit.
That said, check out what the Captain Marvel suit might look like using the classic colors:

@CaptMarvelNews no idea if this is what the suit will end up looking like, but I used my admittedly terrible photoshop skills to try and piece together what the actual colour scheme will look like for Captain Marvel. #CaptainMarvel pic.twitter.com/K8IvXWjVUY

Captain Marvel has a March 8, 2019 release directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck also starring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Walter Lawson / Mar-Vell, DeWanda Wise in an unknown role, and Ben Mendelsohn is rumored to play the villain, Skrull commander / leader.
A previously released description for Captain Marvel offered: The superhero film will be set in the 90s, and the Skrulls, alien shape-shifters, will be the primary antagonists. After encountering the Kree hero, Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers was accidently subjected to otherworldly radiation that transformed her into a superhuman warrior. Calling herself Ms. Marvel, she established herself as one of Marvel’s most powerful and prominent heroes as a sole heroine and as a member of the Avengers. Recently, she adopted the mantle of Captain Marvel for herself.
