Default Muscle loss on purpose

I am trying to cut overall body weight. While I want it to be mostly fat, I have decided for proportions sake i need to bring my upper body and lower body more in line with each other. From years of heavy squats, deads, and other lower body work I carry a lot of mass in my glutes and upper legs.

How would one go about losing some of that mass without sacrificing strength. I've tried using 3x3 protocols but I just seem to hold the mass I already have. Should I ditch lower body lifting for a time and use sprints and o-lifts to keep my strength up? Anyone have any experience in this area?
