Out of Your League: Women’S Luxury Products As Signals to Men

Previous literature suggested that mate motives could influence luxury consumption (Griskevicius et al. 2007; Wang and Griskevicius 2014); the present research extends this work by showing that mate selection motivation increases women’s desire for conspicuous luxury goods as signals regarding their mate preferences to potential romantic partners.
