I don't mind the thick ponte knit style with a nice tunic top, just not peeking out from under skirts or shorts. As the ladies here say, you do you, but it's neither a fashion forward look, nor intentional enough to pull off in a "I know it's out of style, and I'm cool enough to do it anyway.
As for the pasty legs, and self consciousness, no good advice there. Personally, I say rock the pudgy pasty legs fan of it myself. Spend more time outside, the whiteness goes away.
I am blessed with lovely cellulite not just on my upper thighs, but a fair bit of my thigh alas TMI, sorry. Honestly, I doubt other people even notice, but it bugs me. Unless I'm at the beach, my thighs seldom come out to play. I wear skirts or dresses far more than shorts. I look a bit dumpy in longer shorts, but a two or three inch gap above my knees in a dress is still adequate coverage, while still looking cute. Would that work for you possibly?
I hate dresses, mostly because of the chaffing, but also because they are almost never comfy and I think they make me look big so, no go on that it just doesn't suit me.

Jockey makes wicking shorts that are invisible under dresses but make the chafing a thing that doesn't happen! I just discovered them and my summer wardrobe is about to be all dresses, all the time.
I have the pudgy pasty legs that look weird in shorts, too, I totally get the struggle!

Do you have chub rub all the way down? I have a bit too, and usually wearing a slightly longer inseam helps. I like it, but only with non-solid opaques like your muscle tights you mentioned, that would be really cool imo or any translucent tights particularly fond of black pantyhose-esque with little printed embellishments, as well as tastefully ripped fine-gapped fishnets, but I am in high school so ymmv.
