Pig Roast fell on a warm, beautiful day this year, unlike the previous year where it rained constantly during the annual University tradition -- a change many students welcomed.

“Everyday should feel this good,” said sophomore Dalyan Cemaletin.

Pig Roast fashion choices are always entertaining to see, and this year was no exception.

 "I think everyone is just so excited about the day, and I think that dressing up is a huge part of that," junior Olivia Dulmage said. "Look good, feel good, right?”

The Lilly Pulitzer printed sundresses and bright spring colors were abundant on Saturday. The popular trends of wearing pastel bowties and seersucker clothing were still worn this year, but others went with the less traditional approach.

Maggie Michel transcended the traditional Lilly Pulitzer route and ordered her Pig Roast sundress from Australia. Callie Reis also went a less traditional way and chose to wear a romper instead of a dress.

On the other hand, best friends Dylan Herman and Roger Coleman coordinated their festive outfits with bowties and button-down shirts. Their preppy outfits are the epitome of what students picture when thinking about Pig Roast fashion.

When asked about his extremely preppy bowtie, seersucker, and suspender outfit, sophomore Rob Costanzo said, “It’s Pig Roast, why not”.

Additionally, it is always hard to decide which pair of shoes to wear for Pig Roast, but Jack Rogers and Sperry’s were definitely the most popular choices this year. Some female students were even brave enough to wear wedges throughout the entire day.

Overall, Pig Roast fashion stuck to its preppy and traditional stigma, but students did enjoy dressing up for the occasion and look forward to another fun day next year.
