Having worked in a CBD environment in Milan and Bologna, I can tell you that knits are rather popular. But I have never seen a single grenadine worn.

Remember, Stitchy: It doesn't matter whether it best meets the criteria of the challenge, only whether it looks good enough to garner votes.

Just out of curiosity, how is this challenge different from monochromatic look? That's what I am seeing.

Not really my personal cup of chai, this one; Italian style doesn't particularly appeal as a choice for myself. Will browse others' entries with interest, however!

Since I only wear my stuff these days I am not sure I will be able to participate in this.

monochrome simply means all items in the same colorway/hue. this is much more specific than that. it allows for much less colors and a much more restricting style.

^ Not too shabby, sir.

^ Thank you kindly sir.

 

Come to think of it, there's an Italian element in each part of the outfit.
