First recheck and ensure all the toxic links are removed. I would suggest manually checking all the links as no tool is perfect in detecting toxic links.

For new links, first you should focus on all the good quality local directories, listings sites, listicles, etc. relevant to your niche.
The right local directories will help seo, brand awareness and will bring some referral traffic.

Then, you should spend money to buy some high authority links(depending on your industry). Earning high authority links is now like PR work – it’s difficult and you’ll need experts for this.

You can also hire someone to build some natural, contextual links in communities, QA sites, guest posts, WEB 2.0, etc – this is easy stuff and you won’t see a big change.
But still, I would suggest this for a diverse backlink profile and it’ll boost the brand awareness. But if not done right, this might result in another penalty.

You can also try some advanced techniques like broken page link building, resource page link building, links from brand mentions(works only for well known brands).
