I'm a tiny-built person cursed with dreaded CANKLES. How can I dress to best flatter my body?

In general, I think I'm a pretty cute and confident girl, but I have one major issue with my body that I need to come to terms with.
I'm 5'4, 115 lbs, with a small frame. I eat well, exercise regularly, and am in good shape BUT despite my petite structure, I totally have CANKLES, WTF?!? This is probably a genetic thing cause my mom has them too, and I understand there is really nothing I can do about them barring ridiculous plastic surgery.
Since summer is fast approaching, and I wont be able to hide in long pants forever, what lengths of skirts/dresses/shorts should I wear so as not to accentuate them? What styles (shoes included) are the least flattering and therefore should be avoided?
Bonus question: men, do you notice this right away? Is it a huge turnoff? dealbreaker?
