Abstract

As online clothing shopping has become more and more common, the results and findings of research into the factors that influence online shopping are increasing, and the attitudes of this group of new generation women towards online clothing consumption are worth exploring. This study focuses on how social media and e-commerce platforms influence female university students' stylized clothing consumption behaviour and the relationship between female university students' stylized clothing consumption and self-image presentation. Questionnaire were conducted with 450 participants. The questionnaire was divided into three parts, including a survey of basic information about Chinese female university students, their ideas about clothing needs and factors influencing their consumption behaviour towards stylized clothing. This research found the influence of advertising factors of e-commerce platforms and recommendation factors of social media on consumer behavior. At the same time, purchasing behavior of consumers is also affected by other factors, such as brand. The study found that e-commerce platforms and social media influence consumers by showing the desired wearing effect, with e-commerce platform advertising being more effective than traditional advertising, while social media is a new marketing trend where consumers are more likely to compare the desired effect, the reference effect and the actual effect to decide whether to make a purchase.
