Adding pronouns to the mix

Adding pronouns to the mix

« Ton costume te va bien. »

How would you say - ‘It suits you well’?

Il te va bien? or Ça te va bien?

Would the construction respect gender as well? 

Finally when would you use çela over ça?

Thank you

Hi M,

"Ton costume te va bien."   --> "Il te va bien"    because the costume is the specific subject.

Otherwise, it would be acceptable to use ça / cela in a more general sense where cela is a more formal register than ça but means the same thing.

There is further information here:-

Hope it helps.

Jim
