    choosing clothes

    hi,
    what's the verb that describes what we do when we choose clothes so that everything looks pretty and harmonic when we wear it? can I say that a shirt ''combines'' a pants? ''matches''?
    thanks.

    The blouse doesn't match your jeans

    This dress doesn't fit Mary any more

    What color carpet would go with the walls?

    The overall 'matching or harmonizing attractively' is referred to as 'clothes that co-ordinate'. One of the colours in a tie should match the colour of the shirt, so that they co-ordinate.
