The Best 4th of July Tanks & Tees

Independence Day is all about celebrating our freedom. And with freedom comes the right to wear any T-shirt or tank top you want, including ones with funny slogans, tanks with patriotic puns, and a lot of printed tees with the word Merica (because that’s more fun to say than tacking an “A” on the front).

Whether you’re shopping around for the perfect holiday tee to show off your American pride or want to make your own, here is our round-up of the best 4th of July T-shirts and tank tops:

99 Problems but Freedom Ain’t One


There’s nothing wrong with being proud that freedom isn’t a problem if you’re American. I mean, we’re pretty fortunate. This tank is a play on words from JayZ’s hit song “99 Problems” and I think it’s pretty fitting for the upcoming holiday. You can buy this tank in gray or white here.

Land That I Love


Show your American pride with this super classy, yet casual star-spangled Racerback tank top. This is something you can possibly make yourself with the right materials and fabric. You can see the original Racerback product on Etsy.

Merica Cat


What’s Independence day without a cat on your T-shirt? This patriotic cat wins in the 4th of July T-shirt category for being a purrrr-fect representation of Merica. Check out the shirt at

Patriotic Unicorn


Calling all unicorn believers: this printed Racerback tank is for you. This item is handmade, but of course, stores are sure to have similar tees and tanks to show your love to American AND unicorns. Check out the original tank top at this Esty Shop.

Too Cool for British Rule


If you want to be sassy this 4th of July, wear this hipster tee to tell the Brits that we’re too cool for their rule. And yes, that is Benjamin Franklin wearing shades on the design. Buy the T-shirt in black or red sleeves here.
