Hmm, I can see why people would have a problem with the lack of clothes/accessories for the main protagonists. Since almost all previous Rareware (Rare Ltd) games had clothes, and/or accessories for the heroes like, Banjo (though not Kazooie), Conker, Donkey Kong, Kameo, etc. Now the main reason why Yooka and Laylee don't have clothes/accessories could be that it's just a design choice on the developers part, without having a specific reason for it.
My second guess is that the developers wanted something original for their new main characters without having them being too similar to their previous main characters designs, and thought that Yooka and Laylee running around butt naked will be hilarious.
Last guess why Yooka and Laylee don't have clothes/accessories could be because they live in the wild instead of living in a house like Banjo & Kazooie, Conker, Donkey Kong, etc do, and so they don't need them. As for the characters designs of Yooka and Laylee, they look fine. Though Laylee could use some fur shading like Conker's bat form has in Conker: Live & Reloaded.
