When adolescents undergo the period of transition, they need to promote self-confidence from social support by parents, teachers or friends. It was believed that boosting subjective perception on their main areas of interest such as academic performance, appearance and fashion will result in happiness. The main purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of social support including family support, teacher support and friend support on self management, appearance satisfaction and fashion opinion leadership. A total of 412 questionnaires from the middle and high school students living in or near Seoul were collected and analyzed. The results indicated that teacher support and family support had a positive effect on self-management and family support had a positive effect on appearance satisfaction. Furthermore, friend support had a positive effect on fashion opinion leadership. In conclusion, implications for promoting self-confidence related to self-management, appearance satisfaction and fashion opinion leadership with the help of social support are suggested.
Keywords: social support, self-management, appearance satisfaction, fashion opinion leadership
