Dylan Evans received wrong order from online retailer ASOS and decided to take the opportunity to make a cheeky move. He donned the red dress that he had received in error and uploaded photos on Twitter, which have since gone viral.
Evans, who is a YouTuber and radio presenter from Liverpool, received the wrong order from the UK-based online retailer, ASOS. He took to social media to highlight the error, but did so in a creatively funny way.
Evans seemed to fit into the red dress perfectly. He received thousands of comments praising his appearance in the cut-shoulder, ruffle-sleeved slip red dress.
The YouTuber’s original order was that of a pair of black jeans and gold sunglasses. After he received the wrong package, he tweeted: “Ayy @ASOS (I might be wrong) but, I’m pretty sure you’ve sent me the wrong order…”. The tweet which is now viral, with over 1,76,000 likes, 54,000 re-shares and 1,800 comments, was also featured on Twitter’s official ‘Moments’ account.
Under the comments section, Evans was praised on his ‘nice legs’, ‘great shoulders’ and ‘confidence’ at carrying the look. Many users urged him to keep the dress as it suited his lanky frame. Others also jokingly advised him to get matching heels and bag, to complete the outfit.
ASOS also wittingly responded to his tweet, and said, “Ayy Mr Dylan, you are definitely rocking that dress! Please send over your 9 digit order number and your ASOS registered email address in a DM and we can organize a cheeky swap to happen.”
Twitter users were quick to jump to Evan’s defense, and urged ASOS to let him keep the dress:
I’m sorry, but you should just let him keep that because it’s flawless on him and send him the correct order. I mean, just think about the exposure this complete rocking of a red dress has already brought your brand. You can do a Out Rock Dylan tie-in contest, etc.

The popular and affordable online retailer happily cashed in on all the attention this has gotten them. They commented on Evan’s tweet with a link to the red dress, available for purchase at a retail price of $47(£33).
Meanwhile, we have yet to hear from Dylan whether he received his correct order or not.
