If you like low, chunky heels...
...try a kitten heel. Without the square toe.
That 1" heel might make you feel like your posture is better, but the fact is they're not even that comfortable, and will put a good 20 years on you.
I completely understand the desire for mobility, especially if you walk to and from work. But your heels don't need to be four-inchers to sophisticate your look. I stay away from flats at work because I feel zero confidence or authority in flats. But even a small kitten heel looks dainty and pretty, and makes your feel look much more ladylike than the rowboats you were clunking around in.
