This amazing look is from one of our favorite new labels, Trademark. Click through to learn more about the line, along with more recently launched sites and brands to have on your radar.

The Bookmark: Trademark

The Background: Haven't heard of Trademark's founders, Alexandra and Louisa Burch? How about their dad, retail legend Chris Burch, the man who master minded C.Wonder, and helped launch his ex-wife Tory Burch's namesake brand (although we totally credit her talent for making it a huge success)? These girls have fashion in their blood!

The Selection: Classic, understated pieces (including ready-to-wear, jewelry, shoes and bags) with lot of small special details, like bright silk lining in a blazer or frog closures instead of buttons.

The Price Range: Nothing costs more than $500, and most things are under $200.

The Bookmark: Mina & Olya

The Background: If there was ever a sustainable clothing line that breaks the sustainable fashion's earthy, crunchy, handmade clog wearing stereotype, it's Mina & Olya. Designed by friends Mina Yazdi and Olya Dzilikhova, the line feels runway-level luxurious thanks to the highest quality hemp, silk, wool, denim and cotton fabrics, and a hand finish on each garment.

The Selection: Impeccably tailored pieces that nod to the current trends without feeling, well, trendy.

The Price Range: Very expensive, many of the pieces are over $500, if not $1,000. Keep in mind, however, you're shelling out for extreme quality—these pieces will last a lifetime.

The Bookmark: AYR

The Background: The womenswear counterpart to digital-only dudes line Bonobos, AYR—which stands for "All Year Round"—aims to be the best source for basics online. To fulfill this tall order, the brand has appointed J.Crew and Madewell alum Jac Cameron and Maggie Winters as its design and brand directors, respectively.

The Selection: Imagine the most classic, simple version of every possible kind of clothing: just-cropped-enough denim in every wash, every T-shirt cut possible, the perfect, thigh-grazing boyfriend blazer and more.

The Price Range: Although the most expensive item is a long robe coat for $485, most other pieces run between $100 and $300.

The Bookmark: Self-Portrait

The Background: Founded by the former creative director of Three Floor, Han Chong (who, FYI is a Central Saint Martins graduate—you know the same school that turned out Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen), Self-Portrait doesn't do basics. Every single piece makes a major statement.

The Selection: Small. However, despite the tight edit, the pieces are killer. Some standouts include: sleek sculptural cocktail dresses with strategically placed cut-outs, perforated leather T-shirts and floppy mini skirts made with colorblocked lace.

The Price Range: $250 to $425, which is surprising low considering the stuff looks like it should be hanging on the same sales rack as Mary Katranzou, Christopher Kane and Prabal Gurung.

The Bookmark: Violet Grey's Shop the Shelves

The Background: To complement The Violet Files, an online magazine covering the Hollywood beauty scene, the site just debuted a "Shop the Shelves" section with products handpicked by industry insiders.

The Selection: This is not the place to go if want to sift through hundreds upon hundred of products. Only the very best creams, powers and sprays make the cut, so you get right to the good stuff. (Obviously, there's a lot of Tom Ford and La Mer.)

The Price Range: While the makeup generally stays in the $20 to $50 zone, some of the skin care products run upwards of $650.

The Bookmark: Zady
The Background: After bonding over a mutual frustration with fast fashion, childhood friends Maxine Bédat and Soraya Darabi dreamed up Zady, a place that supports and sells products ethically made in America. Not only does every label you find on this site have an interesting backstory, but it's committed to creating the highest quality pieces possible.

The Selection: A mix of more established brands you may already know (like Clare Vivier, Steven Alan and Pendleton), along with lots of up-and-comers worth having on your radar (some of our favorite discoveries include The West is Dead, Brandy Pham and Winifred Grace).

The Price Range: With options that swing from a $15 set of thank you cards to a $328 weekender bag, there's a little something for every budget.

The Bookmark: The Dreslyn

The Background: Fresh from a stint buying for Ssense.com, Brooke Taylor Corcia created The Dreslyn for girls who want a little bit more from their digital luxury shopping experience. Along with the site's selection of high end womenswear and home goods, you'll find a mix of interesting articles and inspiring photography.

The Selection: Not so much big name, it-has-a-separate-couture-line kind of designers, but the sort of It-girly labels you'd likely find in Alexa Chung, Harley Viera Newton and Emma Roberts' closets. Think more Elizabeth and James, Reece Hudson and Maison Kitsune than Chanel or Valentino.

The Price Range: "Affordable expensive." While you'll have to save up for this stuff, for sure, nothing will cost more than your car did.

The Bookmark: Of A Kind Collections

The Background: In addition to its limited edition business model, Of a Kind gave a permanent e-commerce home to several regular OaK collaborators—including Wren, Eayrslee and Dusen Dusen—last November.

The Selection: The same sort of "no one else will have this" kind of treasures you'll find under the Editions channel—and with so many more options! Rather than showing just one take it or leave it item, each label offers several pages of product.   

The Price Range: Nothing over $400, and lot's of under $100 options.

The Bookmark: Whistles

The Background: A major fixture of Great Britian's high street scene, Whistles used to be one of those stores we could only shop on vacation (like COS...well, at least for a few more months). Earlier this year, though, it finally began offering stateside shipping on its website, which is filled with the same great stuff as its brick and mortar stores.

The Selection: Just the right blend of trendy (pastel flatforms, fur skirts, metallic track pants) and classic pieces (leather moto jackets, black trousers, cream pullovers) that mix and match surprisingly well.

The Price Range: Some of the outerwear is pretty steep—the most most expensive jacket is $900—but there's lots of options under $200, too. Even still, unless there's a sale, don't come here looking expecting a bargain.

The Bookmark: Parcel & Journey

The Background: By sourcing Parcel & Journey's inventory from artisans around the globe, the site's founder Joanna Steinberg hopes to achieve two things: beautiful handmade products her customers can't find anywhere else and support for skilled craftsmen worldwide.

The Selection: Handstiched ikat brogues, beaded clutches, dip-dyed scarves—basically what you'd buy as souvenirs on the coolest vacation ever.

The Price Range: Very doable. Although there's a few items over $200, the majority of the site is marked for much less.

The Bookmark: BeautyCounter

The Background: Upon learning about the shocking number of toxins found in most beauty products, Gregg Renfrew developed BeautyCounter, a cosmetics collection focused on strict safety regulations. Besides offering the full line, the company's site includes some riveting information about what's really in your favorite face wash and fun blog posts highlighting stylish women.

The Selection: All of the BeautyCounter's products, which include dozens of makeup, skincare and kid-friendly items made without harmful ingredients.

The Price Range: Unless it's part of a set, nothing costs over $100.
