How to say, that some dress matches with person's eyes. I would think of this:

This dress suits your eyes.

But haven't found such a phrase while searhing the Internet. Please, advise.

    Typically we say "That dress really brings out your eyes".

  • We use suits when talking about the person, but I would use it more for a man: "That tie (or those pants) really suits you." Surely, there are better ways to compliment a woman's appearance.

That dress really brings out the colour of your eyes.

That dress really complements your eyes.

That dress suits you down to the ground and really makes your eyes shine.

The first one is perhaps the most typical. I was just riffing on the others.

  • Okay, I don't even know what riffing means here. All I know is that it is a verb that guitar players use.

    Riffing means creatively expanding on a theme with variations - whether in music or in discussion. I often hear it used to mean "start with an idea and come up with interesting variations or elaborations," but I am a musician and spend a lot of time with musicians, so it may be jargon specific to that crowd.
