As the National Day Parade 2018 approaches, resist the urge to reach out for one of your worn-to-death red t-shirts and use this chance to indulge in a little patriotic retail therapy. Given that the parade includes a daytime segment that includes the crowd basking in our famous tropical sun, you want to make sure you’ve got a t-shirt that looks fitting for the event, is comfortable and cooling. Bonus points if your tee also conveys some kind of message, whether inspirational or patriotic. These 18 tees help check all those boxes, and coming in under $40 means that you can do some guilt-free shopping.
