It’s straight up summertime right now and now that we’re in July we’re finally feeling the heat. This is hands down the perfect time to load up on cute statement tees and tanks that you wear now and even throughout the rest of the year. We figured you’ll probably want some options that shout out Latinx culture and pride because why not?

So we did some digging and found some of the best Latinx T-shirt and tank top options that you’ll definitely want to click on and add to your online cart. These are all stylish and affordable tops, that you don’t see everywhere, and can easily wear with a variety of fashionable bottoms. Plus, who doesn’t want style with the addition of being able to rep your Latinidad?

Martha of Miami Ponte Las Pilas

We recently discovered the brand Martha of Miami and dig a lot of their Latinx-via-the-305 merch (lots of cool Cuban gear!). One fave is their Ponte Las Pilas T-shirt, where the word “pilas” is done in the Filas font. Wear this with jeans or joggers and Fila slides, and you’re set with a stylish look, m’ija.

We have written quite a bit on Peralta Project and how artist M.Tony Peralta embodies the Latinx experience in New York in his work. His T-shirts are always fire, including this pretty, dope one shouting out Afro-Latinx awesomeness. How amazing would this look paired with red pants and matching gold hoops?!

It’s about time more and more stylish options for tees and tanks that help us rep our country(ies) and culture(s) are available. For a long time, we had to rock men’s T-shirts or peruse through way too many options that only featured flags and flag colors. This pretty Salvadorian tee, by Coeur Collective, just features the word “Salvadoreña,” and that’s more than enough. Plus, it’s available in a ton of colors!

Available at etsy.com, $15.99-$17.59

This tank, by La Mestiza Boutique, features La Virgen, surrounded by an indigenous frame; this is another tank available in multiple colors. It’s great for layering or rocking on its own with some cute shorts. While you’re in La Mestiza Boutique’s online store, also check out their great weekender bags!

Adorable Apparel Chula T-shirt

We’re all for vintage style T-shirts, like this one by Adorable Apparel, that features the word “chula” on it. Not only does the word resonate with us but it also happens to be in a totally retro, 1970s striped/rainbow font. It’s both far out and groovy. Of course, this tee would look great tucked into some ’70s-style high-waisted bell bottoms and wood-stacked platforms.

Available at etsy.com, $23.99-$29.99
