how to say "appropriate" or "befitting" in Hebrew...


הוֹלֵם (hoh-LEHM) means appropriate in the same ways as the English word. 

There's בִּגּוּד הוֹלֵם (bee-GOOD hoh-LEM) - appropriate attire, both in the social sense and in response to the weather. 

And there's הִתְנַהֲגוּת הוֹלֶמֶת (heet-nah-hah-GOOT hoh-LEH-met) - appropriate behavior

And, of course, there's מַשְׂכּוֹרֶת הוֹלֶמֶת לְפִי הָעֲבוֹדָה (mahs-KOH-ret hoh-LEH-met le-FEE hah-ah-voh-DAH) - An appropriate salary according to the job.
