Unlike other downloadable aspects like badges and faces, there's not a lot of options for Football Manager 2020 kits because, simply put, each kit is its real life counterpart. Heading to the FM Scout kits page lists a plethora of kit packs, segregated by league. They're done in this way because for each team in each league, there's up to three kits, which is a lot compared to badges, faces, and the like.

Therefore, you simply need to find the correct kit packs for the playable leagues you have in your game. When you've got enough, follow the method above, and you'll have all the kits you need in your game.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
