Knee length skirts are your friend for covering up big thighs I would say.

Leggings and long tops will (IME) only draw attention to your thighs.

wide leg trousers and tops that sit on your waist rather than bum.

I have thighs issues and wear knee-length skirts, skinny jeans (only with boots to balance thighs), knee length dresses, maxi dresses, slim cropped pants. A good pair of heels can really do wonders as well. The list is endless. Don't get down about it - most people have something they don't like about themselves. So what if we can't wear mini skirts or short shorts?! smile

Dresses and skirt with boots.

Wide floor skimming length trousers and boot cut jeans (not skinny jeans as they make my legs look fat) with heels are my favourites, and I have Thighs (not just thighs).

Good things for you
A line skirts and knee length jersey dresses - wear with knee boots
Straight leg jeans - create the same look as skinnies but much more forgiving
Wide leg trousers - wear with neat fitting tops
boot cut jeans - they balance out your shape

Things to Avoid
Thigh length hem lines on tunics and longer tops - they will draw attention to your problem area.
