The chunky-heel shoes on the left are more suitable for the office. The polka dot heels on the right are cute, but they're higher, work better for party wear, and have ankle straps, which aren't great on petites

Safety first! Don’t wear anything to the office that could trip you up. Save the stilettos for an evening out. Petites can add needed height with high heels, so wear shoes with heel styles that you can walk in without looking as though you’re doing a balancing act. Consider that you'll be spending eight or more hours in your work shoes, so you don't want to be in agony the entire day.
