Explanation

The clue word sartorial means relating to tailoring or clothing, so the word in the blank must mean clothing. Panegyric and oratory both mean speech, so eliminate choices (A) and (E).

Raiment and caparison both mean clothing, making choices (B) and (D) correct. Fetes and soirees are both types of parties, so eliminate choices (C) and (E).

Hence options B and D are correct!
