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.

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:

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).
