A midnight mass service, for me, is a fairly casual affair, so smarter trousers and leather boots – plus an embellished hair accessory if I’m really feeling festive – are my go-tos. Dress code aside, clever layering is key to keeping warm. Yes, it’s technically indoors, but come midnight, any church is absolutely freezing. A heavy-duty jumper is ideal. A cream Fair Isle knit is festive without straying into novelty territory, as are my fir tree green cords and matching boots.   Sitting and standing on queue for Christmas hymns calls for high waists (seriously, you’ll regret anything you’ll constantly be tugging at) and shoes will need to be comfy. Boots with a chunky heel and a mid-calf height (so that there isn’t a gap between them and your trousers) keep me warm and smarten up my look. I think my nan would approve. KT
