While we were out at our watercolored Easter brunch rocking our floral printed wardrobe, Rihanna surprised us all in a rainbow pastel cashmere track suit.

When we saw this comfy masterpiece, we thought, 鈥淗ey 鈥 why didn鈥檛 I think of wearing that?!鈥 And guess what! You totally can, because it鈥檚 100 percent DIY-able. No need to trek out to Barney鈥檚 for the matching track suit that totals聽$3,308 鈥 instead, pick up a white sweatshirt and sweatpants from an affordable separates store like H&M, and give them a watercolored makeover.

Instructions:

1. Dunk the sweatshirt and sweatpants into water to get them completely wet.

2. Mix fabric dye with water to create a watery/pastel dye.

3. Use a foam brush to paint all colors onto the wet fabric.

4. Let dry for 24 hours, and then follow instructions on packaging on how to set the color into the fabric.

Grab a bucket full of water, and submerge your sweat suit. Wring out the extra water so the fabric is wet, but not soaking.

The key to getting pastel hues is to mix the fabric dye with plenty of water. Use a foam brush to apply the dye in sections on the wet fabric.

Apply each color right next to the other, and watch them blend into a pastel rainbow.

On to the pants to complete the rainbow tracksuit attire.

Let your rainbow masterpiece dry for 24 hours, and then follow the dye鈥檚 instructions on how to set the color. This will most likely be by ironing on the reverse side of the fabric.

Feel free to let your inner Rihanna shine and rock this tracksuit with heels and stacks of jewelry, or go the more comfy route and pair it with a bright pair of sneaks ;)
