We love nothing more than a man in a great suit! And there’s no doubt that modern grooms are putting more thought into their wedding attire than ever before. Gone are the days of leaving things until the last minute, scrambling for the perfect fit; the grooms of 2022 know exactly what they like and how they want to look and feel on the big day. Whether it’s a classic cut tuxedo, a statement three-piece or bold trend-led pieces, the 2022 groomswear collection by Benetti Menswear ticks all the trend boxes. Benetti’s contemporary exquisitely-cut suiting has the finest attention to detail, resulting in a sophisticated collection that will stand the test of time. Wait until you see the trends and the key groomswear pieces for 2022 – we’re swooning already!
1. Sophisticated Shades of Grey
Spring/Summer 2022 is all about the return of the grey three-piece suit and Benetti’s elegantly tailored Jonny suit is sure to turn heads at the top of the altar. This sophisticated piece is one that can be worn year-round, fitting the brief for a summer celebration or winter wonderland nuptials. Feel like making a statement? Change up the look with your choice of waistcoat or tie. Grey is a classic colour and while navy suits have had their (well-deserved) moment, there’s a lot to be said for a slick grey hue.
2. Sharp Contrast Detailing
The traditional dinner jacket has had a major glow-up for 2022 with sophisticated contrast detailing that will suit the fashion-forward groom. The piping detail and contrast buttons in Benetti’s Harold jacket, although understated, elevates groomswear attire to a new level. Ideal for the man who places importance on the finer details. Sophisticated and contemporary, this one is a big winner in our eyes.
3. Old Hollywood-Inspired Tuxedos
There’s a reason the tuxedo has been around for the longest time, it’s a timeless look and a staple in men’s formalwear. A simple, sleek silhouette, the tux is the epitome of class, sure to make any groom feel like the best version of himself on his wedding day. Benetti’s Shawl Tux is exquisitely tailored, crafted from the finest fabrics and finished with debonair details including the elegant satin shawl collar. This is a look that won’t age quickly and can be worn again and again. Modernise the look by opting for grey and burgundy hues with accents of satin and velvet.
4. Rich Blue Hues
Grey suits may be having a moment but navy hues and rich blue-toned pieces are going nowhere anytime soon. This is a modern take on a timeless look and the Peter Ink Tuxedo epitomises this vibe, and feels fresh when styled in monochrome, but also with complementary mix and match accessories. Plus, we love how this achieves a less formal vibe than a darker suit, without compromising on style.
5. Understated Microprints
Microprints add a touch of luxury to men’s formalwear and the trend, which has been around for a few seasons, is here to stay. The key to pulling off this look is to be selective with your pieces. A statement blazer with a fine pattern is best teamed with a pair of block colour trousers, for example. The Harold Ice jacket is a true showstopper, so team it with navy to really make that ice blue pop, plus the contrast piping on the lapels makes it a fashion-forward choice.
6. Elevate With Accessories
Accessories can really pull a look together and that’s no different for men’s formalwear. A sharp tie or playful dickie bow can really inject a sense of personality into groomswear, while a contrasting waistcoat and beautifully crafted pair of shoes can instantly elevate a look. There’s no right or wrong when expressing yourself on your wedding day but remember less is more. Well-cut design pieces can also speak volumes!
