If you’ve noticed a lot of popped collars, argyle and topsiders rolling through area campuses, you’re not alone.

The list of preppiest colleges is out and two local schools lead the pack: Georgetown University and the University of Virginia ranked highest on Huffington Post's 2012 preppy barometer.

Eight schools were chosen based largely on students' style.

Georgetown got nods for students sporting a lot of Brooks Brothers, Rugby and Jack Wills.

If that's not preppy enough for you, one of UVA's unofficial mottos is "guys in ties ... girls in pearls."

Boston College, Wheaton and Cornell rounded out the top five "preppiest colleges."
