    Trying on

    Excuse me for the non-use of cyrillic, I am using another computer.
    Could one help me with these sentences.

    How do you say...

    The shirt fits great.
    It's too wide (tight, long, short).
    What's your size?
    It's chic, casual, pretty, hideous, stylish.
    to look like
    to try on
    to put on
    to wear
    the pants are way to tight.
    They're a little to big.

    The skirt looks stupid.
    Yubka vyglyadit glupnaya.
    В эту ночь все огни погасли в Джорджии
    В эту ночь невиновного человека повесили
    Не доверяй тайну никакому деревенщине-адвокату
    Ведь руки городского судьи в крови

    The shirt fits great- эта юбка хорошо (на вас) сидит

    It's too wide (tight, long, short). - она (i.e. юбка) слишком широка (тесна, длинна, коротка)

    What's your size? - какой у вас размер?

    It's chic, casual, pretty, hideous, stylish. - она элегантна, проста, красива, ужасна, модна

    to look like - выглядеть как... она выглядит как...

    to try on - примерять (imperf.)/примерить (perf.)

    to put on - надевать (imperf.)/ надеть

    If I remember from my days of writing about Oleg riding about on a wolf and being held prisoner by the Tsarina Akbar, you generally use adverbs and not adjectives with this verb. And anyhow it should be "glupaya", not "glupnaya."

    юбка выглядит глупо - yupka vyglyadit glupo
