Subtract "black" from that list and brighten it up a bit (yellow or pink would be better and optional), and it trumps PTO's advice.
That series has a strange idea of "basics." None of those, aside from the "solid" regular silk, is needed for business.
Grenadine, by the way, is a trend, a non-offensive one, but a trend nonetheless..
Black tie is more a formal tie (or something for a punk rocker). Yellow and pink ties are far more common as business wear and arguably could be part of a starter tie wardrobe (but probably should not be worn to interviews). If people want to say that black is okay in paisley or some other patterns or as a knit, okay, but it is never a business basic.
"Trendy" doesn't mean "out of style" soon. Some items are always around and sometimes trends become the norm - but most likely grenadine will never be very common. Again, it's fine as part of a rotation, but no article should be talking about it like it is a necessity.
