A while back Eve found an article about haramaki. This is a type of old-fashioned underwear worn in Japan - the name means 'belly warmer'. They have been languishing in obscurity because they have the same coolness factor as granny pants do here - but now they are experiencing a renaissance, and are being made in funky patterns and colours. They look quite fun - people are shown wearing them over jeans, like a little mini-skirt but higher, or under long tops, like another layer. I could see myself wearing one.

Here is the original article, and here is a tutorial written by someone else (though I think the result looks a bit skimpier than I'd like).

I have camouflage-pattern stretch fleece. I think I know what I'm doing with it.

If you were commissioning me to write an article - anywhere from 500 to 2000 words - for a general webzine, what would you ask me to write about?
