What is the correct answer?
That blouse _______ the blue shoes.
A) GOES WITH
Is it me, or everyone haven´t noticed that this collor is odd to shoes? blue shoes I mean.
Okay if it have said 'running shoes, walking shoes' I would think of Nike, Mizuno, Umbro, Reebook and so on. So, they be blue or have some strip of blue.
Not specified, I could only think of black or brown shoes. Exceptionally to artists or some weird situations a red shoe could be possible.
So, in this train of thought this would not "match" (even if the blouse was blue).
Back to the crux. In the 'Oxford Escolar' under the entry 'combinar' it explores just these constructions, it goes:
Combinar - to match sth. (combinar com algo...) "These shoes don´t match the purse."
Combinar - to go with sth. (cores ) Black goes with with any color.
In a sense, the two could be used here (I think to go with would be slightly more probable), but when I think about blue shoes...ugh! I´d use goes with.
