With the Super Bowl coming up on Sunday, this installment of Food as Outfit asks the question on everyone’s mind: “What if a charcuterie plate were an outfit?”

A charcuterie board is a welcome sight at any party. We love the cold-weather take on the hearty appetizer pictured below, with its dark grapes, chunks of persimmon, and oily olives. The arrangement inside an iron pan is also alluring and wintry.

This dress may not present as the most wintry ever, however, layer it with a lightweight, close-fitting turtleneck, lug-sole boots and chunky knit hat and you will be ready for those chilly temps. And, like any good charcuterie, you will also be a welcome sight.

By the way, Ace & Jig is one of our favorite designers. If you’re not familiar with their in-house-designed textiles, their slow-fashion approach, and their inclusive sizing, do yourself a favor and check them out! Their values along with their incredible, sometimes reversible fabrics and comfortable yet fashion-forward designs keep us coming back again and again.

Another favorite aspect of this outfit is the yellow waterproof Chuck Taylor high tops, which also come in black. You may have to hike up that skirt to keep it out of the snow, but your feet will stay dry. Check out all the shopping details below!
