Fit vs. Suit
There is a difference between fit and suit. Fit refers to size and shape. When your clothes fit you, they are neither too tight nor too loose for you.

Fit can also mean suitable or good enough.
- Is this dress fit to wear?
If a person is fit, he / she is in good health.
- A sportsman must be fit.
Suit refers to style, colour etc. If something suits you, it is convenient or appropriate for you.
- This hat doesn’t fit me. (= It is either big or small for me.)
- This hat doesn’t suit me. (= This hat isn’t appropriate for my sense of style.)
- Bright colours don’t suit me well. (= NOT Bright colours don’t fit me well.)
- The cold climate in Kashmir doesn’t suit me. (= The cold climate in Kashmir isn’t good for me.)
Suit can also be used to say whether arrangements are convenient.
- Will Tuesday suit you? (= Will Tuesday be convenient for you?)
